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 in our 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 curriculum mapping process and the resulting curriculum maps help ensure the academic excellence that is integral to the mission of our Catholic schools. While the 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 principal, have the flexibility to teach the content and skills in their own manner, utilizing their own particular strengths and teaching style to address the various learning needs of their students.
The curriculum maps that have been developed thus far can be found below. Curriculum maps for other subject areas will be posted to the website as they are completed.
