Course Description:

ECTA 523 INTEGRATION OF CURRICULUM, INSTRUCTION, AND ASSESSMENT (Three Hours) This course examines the integration of curriculum, instruction, and assessment. The design process will be considered, beginning with a definition of what we as educators want our students to know and be able to do, followed by a clear description of the evidence that indicates real student understanding. Learning experiences and instruction based on the defined curricular goals will be planned. Assessments will be developed that insure student understanding. While the course focus applies to all curricular areas, literacy will be emphasized.
