Content and Curriculum
The Content and Curriculum Department serves Idaho’s students, educators and stakeholders by facilitating the process of developing content standards for all subject areas and reviewing and recommending curricular materials to help districts implement the standards. The team provides a variety of services, resources and support to school districts, charter districts and individual educators, including professional development, technical assistance, and school improvement strategies. They also support districts or schools exploring a shift to a mastery-based education system.
Teaching Reading is Rocket Science!
Register NOW for the First Annual K-3 Reading Summit presented by Superintendent Ybarra and the Idaho Department of Education. This will be a day full of learning through literature focused on the science of reading and content integration. Participants will actively engage with authors and leave with practical strategies and practices to implement immediately.
This virtual summit will be the kickoff to a variety of additional learning and professional development opportunities to support K-3 teachers to be masters of teaching reading. We hope you will join us and be among the first teachers in Idaho to learn the science of reading and use this knowledge to propel your students learning in reading and close learning gaps experienced by some students.
