Scenario for Assignments 1-3Assume that you are the curriculum designer for a school district. The school board has requested that several teams develop proposals for new curricula to meet newly established state standards. You and your team must develop the first proposal to provide as a pilot or model for the other teams. You have to first identify a specific curriculum area not currently used in the school district that would greatly benefit the students in the district. Use the Internet or the Strayer Library as well as your textbook to develop a pilot curriculum for a specific discipline area (reading, math, science, etc.) or grade level (K-12) at a local school district.Assignment 3: Curriculum Development and ImplementationDue Week 9 and worth 300 pointsWrite an eight to ten (8-10) page paper in which you:Summarize the following aspects of Assignments 1 and 2:Describe the specific curriculum area and grade level(s) for the pilot curriculumDescribe at least four (4) core instructional goals for the curriculumReview the various approaches to be used for the planned curriculum as well as potential cultural influencesReview the strategy for incorporating critical thinking skills into the planned curriculum using Bloom’s TaxonomyDevelop at least three (3) student learning outcomes for each of the core instructional goals in the planned curriculum. (Note: Student learning outcomes must support accomplishment of their respective core instructional goal and be stated in a manner that is observable and measurable. The student learning outcomes must also support development of critical thinking skills consistent with Bloom’s Taxonomy. A brief article on writing student learning outcomes or objectives, “Writing learning objectives: Beginning with the end in mind,” may be found here.Outline a least one (1) instructional lesson or exercise that could be used to facilitate mastery of one of the three (3) student learning outcomes listed. (Note: The instructional lesson outline should include instructor activities to promote mastery of the learning outcome and develop critical thinking skills. The outline should also include student activities that promote critical thinking and accomplishment of the learning outcome.)Propose at least one (1) way the students for which the lesson is designed will use technology as part of the lesson, providing a rationale for the technology.Propose at least one (1) way in which technology will be used to deliver the lesson, providing a rationale for the technology.Create an implementation plan for the curriculum in the form of a PowerPoint presentation of at least eight (8) slides. Include (a) a summary of the development process (Assignments 1 and 2), (b) the instruction lesson outline, (c) an implementation timetable, and (d) the human and capital resources needed for successful implementation. (Note: The PowerPoint, which is not part of the page count, will be presented to the District School Board.)Use at least three (3) relevant, scholarly references published in the last seven (7) years. (May use references already used in this paper.) (Note: Wikipedia and other non-government Websites do not qualify as scholarly resources. Review the supplementary readings list on the first page of the course guide for possible references.)Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA or school-specific format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page, PowerPoint presentation, and the reference page are not included in the required assignment page length.The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:Identify the key elements of curriculum design and development.Compare the philosophical foundations of curriculum.Consider how psychological foundations play a role in the development of curriculum.Analyze the relationship of social foundations to K-12 curriculum.Develop the strategies and techniques to support curriculum planning.Design curriculum plan for a current or future school setting.Create implementation approaches for curriculum.Use technology and information resources to research issues in curriculum planning.Write clearly and concisely about curriculum design and development using proper writing mechanics.Paper 1Curriculum Inception [for the School District of Philadelphia]School District of PhiladelphiaGeographical LocationThe School District of Philadelphia is [one] the of largest public school district[s] in the United States. This district has control over 214 schools in the city and enrollment has soared to over 200,000 students. Its highest number of schools is found in elementary classrooms with 149 schools, High school has about 49 schools and middle school has 16. Philadelphia also has charter schools that independently run themselves but will report to the Philadelphia School District.Demographics of Student Population and Cultural InfluencesCurrently[,] 200,000 students are enrolled in the Philadelphia School District. Throughout the district, Spanish speakers are the most significant group speaking another language other than English. More than half of the number of students in the district speak Spanish in the district.  [There are] 107 languages are spoken by students in the variety of grade levels, and schools. The other languages include Arabic, Mandarin Chinese, Vietnamese, Russian, Khmer, Creoles and many more.State Policies and Practices Related to Curriculum DevelopmentThere are various state policies designed to improve curriculum development; such as a curriculum audit; a curriculum audit assists the school district in establishing if the curriculum in place [is] aligned to the objectives of the [states] and if the curriculum is adopted in a class by the teachers (Partelow & Shapiro, 2018). The curriculum is vital to the education that the students receive[;] hence, establishing what and when they are taught is essential, in the sense that a curriculum that is of high quality will positively reflect on the student. This policy is on the same page as evaluating the effectiveness of the curriculum and not just alignment, which helps in the development of the best curriculum.Specific Discipline and Grade Level for Pilot CurriculumThe discipline for the pilot curriculum is the K-12 Science Education, which is a broad discipline and exciting at the same time. It is essential to understand that the science curriculum Science education goes with instruction, assessment and teacher development. Science education is the field in education that is involved with sharing of science process and content with individuals, mostly students that are not considered to be part of the science community. In this case, the learners might be college students, children or adults that[TML2]  are among the general population. The science education field encompasses works in science process that is the scientific method, science content, teaching pedagogy and social science. There are standards for science education that provide the basis for the development of proper understanding for the students the entire K-12 education course and other levels of education. The conventional subjects in the standards are life, physical, earth human sciences and space.K-12 [is] the level that this pilot curriculum is focusing on it is also essential to describe it, K-12 is a used educational technology and education in Canada and the United States in addition to other countries (Rouse, 2019). It is somehow a short form for the school grades that are publicly supported that come before college. The publicly-supported grades include the (K) that stands for Kindergarten and the twelve grades that go from 1st to 12th grade (1-12). Whereby after the 12th grade follows is, college and hypothetically speaking the first year of college would be the 13th grade if [TML3] this system was to extend to college. Also, something to note is that modern information technology is provided at the K-12 level in our communities that use the K-12 model.For this particular assignment, just choose 1-2 grade levels but not Pre-K to 12th. You will be designing a lesson plan in Week 9 so you have to be specific with this lesson plan or you will be designing for all grade levels.Rationale [t]hat Proposes Three [B]enefits to [t]he StudentsThe alignment of the framework of this K-12 curriculum, there are other aspects outside the curriculum, that could be considered and at the same time not addressed in the framework. [TML4] Through the elements of the science curriculum, there are specific areas such as discussion and reflection, which are part of the curriculum. Through this aspect’s students can come and establish the fact that scientific inquiry encompasses some values. These values will then benefit them in future even if they are applied in a scientific field, for instance;Respect for the Importance of Logical thinking; this is an aspect that is spread through the science units. Through the experiments and historical evaluations of the branches of science. Logical thinking it is something that is required for nay individuals, which is a good thing that this curriculum can develop this at the K-12 grade level while the students are still young.Open-mindedness[:] this is a crucial factor in our current society with the various issue with gender, politics and other societal topics. Hence[,] the development of such skills through the curriculum will be necessary for the students, as they will develop this from the class to real life situations such as when they join college, and suddenly everything is not the same.Honest report findings[:] this is another beneficial aspect that the students can get from the science curriculum. In the sense that in some way, it will develop individuals with integrity, which is a vital factor for the next generation as a lack of integrity is what ails our current age.The science-education curriculum is supposed to consider the students, mainly because the curriculum in place is not sufficient for their development through the K-12 grade level. Hence the above three benefits are some of the benefits the students will get from the pilot-curriculum program. [TML5]Benefits: Proficient 80-89% B 24.28   pointsFour Instructional Goals of the CurriculumAlbert Einstein said education has the goal “to produces independently thinking and acting Individuals.”[TML6]  Science education, on the other hand, has the aim to produce capable individuals [who] evaluate and understand information that is or claims to be scientific and therefore creating motivated and skills future scientists in every field (Forman et al. 2015). The curriculum was based on this principle, and consequently[,] it has Instructional Goals which are to produce proficient students in Science[.];
