What do we want students to learn?

Curriculum is sculpted through collaborative planning and the pacing of instruction. Teachers arrive at problem-solving tactics for at-risk students and identify suitable instructional practices

Curriculum Review Process

Decorah Community School District regularly reviews the curriculum on a six-year cycle. The District’s curriculum review process follows the ADDIE model:

  • Analyze
  • Design
  • Develop
  • Implement
  • Evaluate Year 1
  • Evaluate Year 2

Throughout the process, teacher teams, teacher leaders, and administrators work together to review data and determine curricular content needs. The cycle may lead teams to continuing to use their existing curriculum, supplementing the existing curriculum, adopting a new curriculum, or writing their own curriculum. The process is explained in more detail within the resources linked below.
