Curriculum Development Process Professional Learning Modules

The Curriculum Development Process (CDP) Professional Learning Series is designed to to deepen educators’ understanding of the role of the CDP in creating curricular coherence and promoting student equity at the local level. The Introduction to the CDP opens the series by providing a perspective essential to the process. From there, modules 1-4 build cumulatively with key actions and products of one phase providing a foundation for the next. Each module includes a video that facilitates the module, a slide deck, a participant handout and a facilitation guide. Please contact Misty Higgins at misty.higgins@education.ky.gov or Fox DeMoisey at fox.demoisey@education.ky.gov with any questions.
