This project is presented in the form of a PowerPoint, which is designed to guide reading and writing teachers at Discovery Canyon Campus through a work session on curriculum alignment. The researcher reviews research on how vertical articulation and aligned curriculum contributes to higher student achievement as well as strategies for effective professional development sessions for teachers. The project is part of the longer process of developing an aligned curriculum at the researcher's school, which encompasses grades kindergarten through 12. The goal of this second step in the process is to evaluate the current curriculum against state standards so teachers will see what other work must be done to align what is taught with those standards.
