Task 2: Identify the Revision Points

Guideline:  The Oklahoma State Department of Education's Process of Curriculum Mapping outline lists five aspects of identifying revision points. They are

  • "highlight areas of inconsistency within and across grade levels,
  • note areas for possible revision in the curriculum,
  • focus on horizontal and vertical articulation of concepts,
  • identify common areas of concern and look for ways to eliminate or minimize their impact, and
  • identify gaps and overlaps."

Together, they provide a focus for reviewing maps.
