The purpose of the Comprehensive Curriculum Project (CCP) is to analyze the myriad of issues that have arisen over the last few years revolving around curricula and its use in the classroom, school, and district. With the 2010 state adoption of the Common Core, educators experienced many different transitional issues and developmental issues revolving around the curricula. In order to develop a deeper understanding of these issues it is important to conduct interviews, look at the Teacher Working Conditions survey, and to analyze local organizational models that might affect the transition to the new standards.
Teachers teach based on what resources are provided or what they can purchase or locate to assist in learning. Some contents have textbooks or consumables that are aligned with the state standards. This is not always the case. Some school have no textbook due to funding or students have to share the limited resources. With the continued changed in education, additional resources are sometimes needed to supplement instruction.
Today, we have advantaged schools and disadvantaged schools. Due to so many biases in the educational sector today, some schools are well equipped with the right resources and state-of-the-art infrastructure. Usually, these learning institutions are located in the rich neighborhoods or are privately owned by individuals. The opposite is the case for schools that are located outside this neighborhood. They are branded as poor schools, and they are left with poor infrastructure with less resources and sub-standard education because there are not enough teachers. Technology in these kinds of schools is too obsolete for students to benefit from it. The future of education depends on the responses or support from the government. The government needs to step in and improve the current state of our schools and equip them to increase the quality of education. Government needs to step up the need for teachers and encourage teachers in order to solve the problem of attrition rate in the public schools. The future of education in the United States of America is bright, but this entire problem, especially the attrition rate, will become a stumbling block to the growth of education. The budget allocated to the department of education should be increased enough for the school district to be able to counter the problem of attritional rate between teachers. The government should ensure all technology and infrastructures are up to date. The teacher-to-student ratio has to be brought down to a very reasonable figure by employing more teachers and building new classes. Technology is rapidly increasing and changing so e –learning should be incorporated into school curriculum to ensure future education is secured in the area of online studies. E-learning should be introduced into school curriculum in such a way that students will be able
Curriculum is a term often highlighted during discourse about education and most commonly understood as a policy with overt leaning outcomes for teachers to apply and achieve. Ornstein and Hunkins (1998), as cited by Selvaraj (2010), defined curriculum based on two lenses; micro and macro, which identify the term as both policy towards certain goals and what students experience with consideration for relevant theories and principles central to its development and implementation. However, Wilson (n.d.) argued that curriculum is not restricted to certain individuals, subjects and environments, since teaching and learning can also occur beyond the scope of official curriculum (Ebert & Culyer, as cited in Marsh, Clarke & Pittaway, 2014). I believe this interpretation is the closest to the true nature of curriculum, or education, as there are more complex layers to curriculum than just a written guideline. For example, not one curriculum is similar to another because it is subjected to influences from continuum number of factors, such as politics and economy. Hence, it is wise to conclude that curriculum could not be defined based on a singular perspective due to its dependability on context.
Schools are always changing and evolving with new students every year; so why not change some other things to benefit the school system. Changing and adding different curriculum in the school environment, is something that should be considered to benefit Streator High School. For example, changing the school starting time to give students more time to prepare themselves for another day at school. Another change that would be advantageous to be brought into Streator High School is to add open campus lunch. Changing up the curriculum would also be obliging. Adding a sign language class would be beneficial to staff and faculty. This would be for students to be able to interact with others that use that for their only communication with others, resulting in a closer, more friendly school environment. There would be an overall positive impact in the school community by adding these changes. More involvement, improvement in the the economy of our town, and improving the overall academics at the high school would be the result of these changes.
The rise in K-12 students with at least one parent who is an unauthorized immigrant contrasts with the total number of unauthorized immigrants, which has remained stable since 2009. Before 2009, the trends had been similar, with both groups rising in number from 1995 to 2007 (the year the recession began), then declining to a lower level in

Fifty plus years ago students had to use type writers. In the present students get to use computers. In the past some teachers had to use black chalk boards to teach. Today some teachers use smartboards. In the past and in the present students use books, paper, and pencils although the present day has more advances in technology. In the article, “In the Future, Diverse Approaches to schooling”, the author described how all types of schools need more flexible use of money to allow technology resources (Hill and
In this assignment, you need to think about 21st century support systems, the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), and International Society for Technology in Education Student (ISTE-S) standards and their relationship with quality instructional planning, delivery, and learner achievement. Using the Framework for 21st century learning as a resource, you will redesign or modify a prior activity, such as a lesson plan or curriculum project, that you created in a prior course. The redesigned coursework need to
Learning is a lifelong endeavor in which people experience continually: learning new information and techniques every day. The world revolves around the nurturing and growth of future generations. Each person repeatedly develops and accepts new strategies to accurately exude knowledge into adolescent lives. Over the last decades, the United States has developed new teaching practices to assist in the education for young minds. Using documents such as the Common Core Standards, established in 2001, or the Every Student Succeeds Act, established in 2015, has aided in the updating of school curriculum by requiring districts “to put state standards into place so all students have access to high-quality content and instruction” (Academic).

One reason why we believe that this novel is unsuited for the grade 11 curriculum is because of the language and references it uses. In Brave New World, Huxley uses many references to Shakespeare’s stories such as: The Tempest, Othello, Romeo and Juliet, and King Lear. In the past, we most likely would have read these stories in detail at school; however in present day, we do not go in depth with as many of them as before. Since we do not have much knowledge with Shakespeare, many of the references to these stories will be unknown to the present and future generations. This would mean many readers would be unable to understand many of the point that Huxley is trying to express through these references. Another area that may be confusing would
