Each school in the diocese is unique and tailors the curriculum, “what we teach” and “how the students are taught,” based on the individual needs of the school/ students. Teachers are responsible for developing the classroom curriculum that their students will experience each day.
The Classroom Curriculum includes specific activities, experiments, simulations, readings, and other content from which students will learn the concepts and skills in the Diocesan Curriculum. It also includes the instructional strategies that teachers use to teach the concepts and skills, as well as the assessment strategies used to guide instruction and evaluate student growth.
Each teacher’s Classroom Curriculum should be developed under the leadership of the principal and attend to the needs of his or her own students, the expectations and priorities of the parents, the teacher’s judgment about what is in the best interest of his or her students, and the traditions and charisms of the school.
