With so many standards driving state assessment specifications, there is insufficient time in the day to ensure that all students will individually perform at expectation. Curriculum Alignment offers school administrators and curriculum specialists concrete, practical guidance in aligning curriculum and instruction to standards and assessments in order to improve test scores, instruction, and learner achievement.This book presents what research says about alignment, and then uses that research as a platform for offering strategies to develop district curriculum and to improve instruction and student achievement.

"One of the few books that takes a holistic look at alignment and helps clarify the definition of alignment. Squires helped increase my knowledge as an instructional leader and showed me that alignment can be a valuable tool when used with real intent. The book engaged me in authentic reflection on my professional practice." -- Margarete Couture, Principal
"The author provides readers with much food for thought, resources to delve more deeply into specific ideas, and benefits and challenges to weigh when making curricular and alignment decisions. Readers are urged to seriously consider how they define curriculum and are offered an alternative definition that, when acted upon, may play a critical role in increasing student learning." -- Judith A. Rogers, Professional Learning Specialist
