A curriculum map is a document explaining what we plan to teach. Please keep in mind that the process of curriculum mapping is always a work in progress. We will revisit, review and revise the maps based on the needs of our students. We hope that you will use these maps as an informative tool of your child’s language learning experience at LaSalle II.
