In fulfillment of the program requirements for Education Specialist certification, I completed a course in Curriculum Design. I was responsible for providing evidence proving that I had a thorough understanding of the following Objective: Develop awareness and comprehension of typical American public school curricular patterns, sequences, and organizations.
As my artifact, I created a research inquiry project that allowed me to research current curriculum trends, issues, and topics. The research project contains the following:
Problem Statement (Defines the research)
Literature Review (Presents the relevant literature necessary for the topic)
Assessment of Problem Statement (Address the problem statement using knowledge from the literature/research)
