Content Area Curriculum Maps
Curriculum maps provide information about the key components of a course. Mounds View Public Schools has created digital curriculum maps for course using the TIES Eclipse Curriculum Management tool. This continuous collaborative process allows for examination of content, skills, alignment and placement of standards in each course.
