Course Description

This course integrates curriculum reform with teaching strategies in a variety of subject matter areas. The purpose of this course is to assist educators in developing comprehensive teaching plans and actions that are standards-based.

Each unit of credit is based on 15 hours of instruction, which may be earned through a variety of delivery systems. For example, a two-hour online program followed by a two-hour workshop conducted by a curriculum specialist would count as four hours towards the unit of credit.

Verification of Hours

You need to maintain an attendance verification form for each workshop attended and the hours participated. The final enrollment requesting the units requires your signature verifying the information to be true and accurate, the facilitator's signature at each workshop, and the verifying signature of the designated administrator, (i.e., assistant superintendent at your County Office of Education or the appointed administrator for selected school districts). View the list of approved signatories for county office contact information.
