Curriculum Enrichment

All ND Regional Education Associations seek to facilitate the expansion and enrichment of curricula in member schools.

 

DEFINITIONS:

Curriculum Expansion is enhancement of curriculum or course offerings (e.g., Career and Technical Education, AP courses, dual credit courses, ITV).

Curriculum Enrichment is the process of selectively modifying a curriculum by adding educational content or new learning opportunities (e.g., MarketPlace for Kids, Expanded Learning Day, After School Programs).

 

VISION:

Quality education systems are built upon college and career-ready standards, rich and engaging curricula based on the standards, and high-quality, aligned assessments to measure student learning. REAs should take steps to promote rigorous standards, effective assessment systems, and strong curriculum.
