Chalk Talk: Role of Curriculum Advisors in Schools
Curriculum advisors work closely with the district curriculum supervisor in order to ensure the district curriculum is aligned with state guidelines. They are also responsible for meeting with teachers to ensure that they are part of the curriculum planning process so that they can take ownership in the curriculum they will be teaching. One of the roles of the curriculum advisor is to observe teachers in the classroom to ensure that they are using good instructional strategies that support the curriculum. They also need to have a good two-way communication system with teachers so that they can help if there are problems. Sometimes, the curriculum advisor will model for a teacher by teaching a class while the teacher observes.
