Rigorous Curriculum Design
Educators nationwide agree on the urgent need to raise the bar on student achievement, as they are called upon to prepare ALL students—an increasingly diverse set of learners—for higher expectations. Every state is raising the rigor of standards and the expectations of assessments, and teachers are being asked to transform both what is taught as well as how it is taught.
Building upon its legacy in rigor and relevance and its systemic approach to student achievement, ICLE is uniquely positioned to help your teachers implement higher standards, prepare for more rigorous and application-based assessments, and equip students for successful futures.
Designing a 21st Century Education
Our Rigorous Curriculum Design (RCD) process is a collaborative model for developing an effective, engaging curriculum that supports existing state, Common Core, or other content-area standards. ICLE equips your staff to create and implement high-quality, rigorous curricular units of study for more meaningful learning and richer, engaging lessons.Through the RCD process, instructional leadership teams learn to:
- Design a grade- or course-specific curricular unit of study from start to finish
- Lay the foundational steps for designing a connected K—12 curriculum
- Use formative assessments, performance tasks, and data analysis to guide instruction
- Organize, implement, and sustain this model systemwide
