Curriculum - Mapping : Impact on Student’s Short- and Long-Term Learning

By using curriculum mapping, I have more time to develop higher-order questions to ensure I get and keep the students’ attention, while creating excitement of the topic. Students will gain improved short- and long-term learning, because expectations for students to use their constructive thinking skills are imperative. Moreover, I have a clear picture of the skills the students will be required to master, through several assessment methods chosen, prior to moving forward to the next topic. One shortcoming of curriculum design is the tendency to emphasize the integrity of the separate subjects and neglect or ignore connections among many subjects (Wraga, 2009).
