Description - Curriculum Alignment by David A. Squires

With so many standards driving state assessment specifications, there is insufficient time in the day to ensure that all students will individually perform at expectation. Curriculum Alignment offers school administrators and curriculum specialists concrete, practical guidance in aligning curriculum and instruction to standards and assessments in order to improve test scores, instruction, and learner achievement.This book presents what research says about alignment, and then uses that research as a platform for offering strategies to develop district curriculum and to improve instruction and student achievement.
