Reflection

      Curriculum alignment is where education providers across different levels evaluate a course or an educational program to incorporate the changing needs of the workforce and students. The curriculum alignment process was tedious and lengthy, but I managed to complete creating it. I had many challenges during the process of creating an assignment.. I had to include a lot of details for the curriculum to make it comprehensive and understandable by the users.

      I engaged in extensive research to come up with this curriculum alignment. The research entailed looking for course material to be used to facilitate the learning of the students. The study entailed looking for books used in other countries that addressed the issue of English learning as a second language. Finding the resources to facilitate the curriculum was tedious as the resources are not just available on the internet but in the eBook central, which I had to log in and search for the materials.

     The curriculum outline was successful as I was able to gather all the required information to complete the alignment. The resources were available in the eBook central, which made it easier for me to choose the best book to be used to help the students develop their skills in English. The thing I would do the next time differently, I will not include assignments every week. Instead, I will give the facilitator the chance to give weekly continuous assessment tests to test the students' knowledgeability. The alignment I created gave me more knowledge on curriculum alignments creation this will undoubtedly be helpful in my professional practice as I know how to go about it.
