Thank you for accessing the Carrollton City School System's Curriculum Mapping Site.
The information contained within this site provides parents, students, and other stakeholders a glimpse into the dynamic classroom curriculum found in all grade levels and for all courses where the Georgia Performance Standards are currently being taught.
As you explore, you will see an overview of the Georgia Performance Standards, which drive our instruction and assessment practices found within each unit. You will also gain insight into the enduring understandings students should acquire by the unit's end as well as the essential questions students should be able to answer as a result of instruction. Information is also provided on the knowledge, skills, and sequence of learning pertaining to each grade level course.
By accessing this information, parents, students, and others gain insight into specific standards students will be expected to master at given points throughout the school year. However, it is important to note that curriculum maps are always under construction and are updated in real time. What you see today may somewhat change tomorrow in response to students' needs, interests, and learning styles.
Most often teachers construct maps collaboratively, building upon the expertise and experience of individuals within their school building. In terms of teachers who are new to the Carrollton City School System, they are assigned to a collaborative group, which aligns with their grade level and content area. Throughout the year, members of the group will meet to discuss the design of each unit and make necessary revisions as a result of assessment evidence.
Likewise, the information provided on this site with regard to instructional units does not encompass our units in their entirety. To see complete units, please contact your student's teacher or one of the school administrators. Or, if you would like to email the unit designers regarding questions you may have, you can access the ability to do so by clicking on the names located in the top, upper left-hand side of the page.
With regard to the information you find on this site, we hope it will be helpful as you assist your child throughout the learning process. And, as always, we appreciate your continued support of and dedication to the Carrollton City School System, where we are committed to "upholding a tradition of excellence since 1886."
