The schools of the Archdiocese of Newark are involved in an ongoing curriculum mapping project which will result in the development of K-12 core maps in each subject. Curriculum mapping is a process that helps schools and districts/dioceses determine the “agreed-upon” learning for all students. This process has been implemented within the Archdiocese to ensure that a consistent, clearly articulated curriculum infused with Gospel values is being provided to all students across all schools. The Archdiocesan core curriculum maps clearly articulate the content knowledge and skills students are expected to acquire in each subject at each grade level.
The mapping process and the resulting curriculum maps help ensure the academic excellence that is integral to the mission of our Catholic schools. However, while curriculum maps articulate the expected learning for all students, they do not prescribe the methods and resources to be used. Individual teachers, under the supervision of their principals, have the flexibility to teach the content and skills in their own manner, utilizing their own teaching strengths and strategies to address the specific learning needs of their students.
