A customized curriculum is a growing trend in schools across the country. It’s easy to see why: these curriculums provide the best solution yet for schools with unique missions or teaching philosophies.
Here’s why you too may want to consider a custom curriculum for your school or class:
1. You Can Finally Get the Perfect Resource for Your Teaching Needs
We’ve heard many educators express frustration with curriculum resources because they were unable to find exactly what they needed. Sometimes educators want their curriculum to focus on different topics than most curriculums do; other times they may want to teach concepts in a different way or relate course content back to other subject areas.
Fortunately, educators are no longer limited to published curriculum offerings. With a custom curriculum, you can create or curate your own resources to give your students the ideal learning experience.
2. You Have Greater Control Over Your Students’ Success
Sometimes students learn best in a different way than a curriculum anticipates. When you use a custom curriculum, you can decide which formats and material to use and take more control over your students’ learning.
3. A Customized Curriculum is Adaptable to Fit Different Class Sizes or Assignments
A customized curriculum can easily be adapted to fit different class sizes or assignments. Teachers can use a specialized curriculum for any sized course or implement a module for a special class project or assignment.
4. You Can Make Your Customized Curriculum Match Your Organization’s Core Beliefs and Goals
In many cases, standardized curriculum providers do not have exactly the same priorities as your school. For example, a typical math curriculum may not give many examples of real-world applications, while your school may prioritize a practical approach to STEM that shows students how they can use the skills you are teaching outside the classroom.
Customizing your own curriculum allows you to ensure the material you teach matches your school’s goals and values. You are the one who knows what outcomes you want to see in your students’ education, so you should get to make the decisions.
