Format: Paperback
Mapping the curriculum is an outstanding, hands-on way to record the complete scope and sequence of the curricula in your school. It is, easy to read and gets directly to the point. I recommend this book to any school administrator or team leader. It will only take an hour to read, but will pay dividends for years to come!

Format: Paperback
Jacobs presents a very simple, common sense approach to organizing and assessing curricula. Her curriculum mapping technique helps teachers to become better organized and it helps administrators evaluate curricula. In an age of standards and accountability, curriculum mapping also makes it easier to to incorporate standards into the curriculum. I would recommend this book to all educators involved in lesson planning and/or curriculum development.

I got a lot out of reading this work by an author at the forefront of this educational issue. The book does not bore you with long academic explanations or theory. The author gets to the the point with real-world advice and examples. The back pages contain examples and templates. She brings mapping into the realm of the doable. A good addition would be advice on how to coordinate school resources, teachers and time to get the job done, as it turns out to be very large undertaking.

A great book for a school or school district to map out curriclum. The author can be contracted to help do this with a school. It makes sense.
