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 expertise in selecting materials in information, curricular planning, and in writing revised curricular materials.
