Curriculum Integration to

Promote Student Outcomes


LINDY DAVIS
EAD-520
JUNE 19, 2019
School setting
>> Elementary School

>> Non-Title 1 School

>> Grade levels served: kindergarten through fifth grade

>> State: Texas

>> State Standards: TEKS


Preventing cultural bias
>> Our schools and classrooms are so diverse so our curriculum must be
reflective of our student populations.

>> As an administrator, it is my duty to train and empower my staff to practice


culturally responsive teaching so that the implemented curriculum is not influenced
by personal bias.
> Teachers must take the time to learn the things that are relevant &
important to their students so they can begin to learn the cultures
represented in their classrooms. For example, there are behavioral norms
that may be different depending on a student’s culture such as eye
contact, silence or other things that may be misconstrued as disrespect
(Duczeminski, 2017).
Preventing cultural bias (cont.)
>> There are things that can be incorporated into the curriculum to ensure that
we are celebrating diversity and being reflective of every student in our content.
> We will ensure that all cultural holidays are present in the curriculum.
> We will use culturally responsive books for our read-alouds and content
connections.
> We will analyze our materials and textbooks to ensure that they are not
biased to one side of history.
> We will provide opportunities for students to share about the cultural
traditions or practices of their families.
Differentiated learning needs
>> It is an expectation on my campus that we do everything within our power to
provide every child an educational experience and opportunities that are
appropriate to their understanding and level of ability.
> Students will be given an entry point to every content objective standard
that sets them up for eventual success. If a student is a year behind, that
is where our instruction will begin. If they are a year ahead, we will enrich
our instruction in a way that is rigorous and dynamic to that child.
> Teachers will pull small groups to provide a differentiated instruction
approach.
> Classrooms and learning areas will be set up with a flexible &
kinesthetic classroom functionality.

>> We will continually assess (formally & informally) to see how our instruction and
interventions are doing and the affect they have on student content attainment &
retention (Unknown, 2017).
Technology enhancement
>> The technology integration on our campus will be purposeful & innovative.
We will not be a campus that just sticks kids on an iPad and claims to integrate
technology.

>> Meaningful Technology Uses (Schiffer, 2016):


> Students should use technology to create something to demonstrate
their understanding (i.e. Popplet, Telestory, Flip Grid, etc.).
> Students could use technology to collaborate & communicate with
their educational community (i.e. Mystery Skype)
> Students should use technology to accomplish or experience
something that is not possible without technology (i.e. augmented or
virtual reality)
> Students could use technology to maximize efficiency (i.e. Talk Box)
School vision & mission
>> School Vision: We will be a premier school that is founded on academic rigor,
innovation, differentiation and acceptance.

>> School Mission: We will provide our students with all the tools necessary to
achieve higher education and life-long success. Our students will be grown with
love of learning and a positive, yet challenging elementary experience.

>> Integration:
> Academic rigor and differentiation are reflected in our individualized
learning experiences.
> Acceptance and positivity will be supported by our culturally
responsive teaching.
