The session long project for this course has involved writing a curriculum assessment plan. For each module, you completed a different section of the plan.

For the final section of your assessment plan, you will address how you will provide professional development and training for teachers based on results from your assessment plan. See sample below. You may use the sample format or use narrative format, however all areas must be addressed. Add this section to your assessment plan that you completed in Modules 1-3.

Based on information gathered from assessments, please develop a professional development plan for teachers to address teaching and learning improvement for the curriculum and outcomes on your assessment plan.
