Curriculum Materials Matter! Evaluating the Evaluation Process
Diane J. Briars, NCTM PresidentAdoption of curriculum materials is one of the most important decisions a teacher, school, or district can make. While state standards describe what students are expected to learn and be able to do, what is taught in classrooms—the implemented curriculum—is heavily influenced by textbooks and other instructional materials. The instructional materials affect lesson content, depth and duration of instruction for particular topics, and topic sequence. So, while we may talk about curriculum materials as just "resources," the fact is that they strongly influence classroom instruction—for better or worse. President's Message
