Curriculum Mapping

Curriculum Mapping
Curriculum Mapping is a way to provide structure and consistency for scaffolding in your information literacy instruction program. Most are done in a grid format, with desired skills mapped to specific programs and classes at levels progressing to skill mastery. Curriculum maps are often designed in one of two ways: by concepts or classes.
