Curriculum & Instruction Department’s Focus
The Curriculum and Instruction Department assists teachers with the implementation of the Utah Core Standards. Our focus is to provide support of the Instructional Framework, including lesson design, proficiency teaching and learning, curriculum maps, benchmark assessments and professional development.
The instructional framework includes the resources to assist teachers with both the art and science of teaching. The framework is built upon fidelity to the Utah Core Standards and provides a consistent, balanced and progressive curriculum to all students. Below are links to the individual components of the Instructional Framework. These components are used in Granite classrooms by teachers in preparing lessons and materials for students.
Each content area has a designated specialist that facilitates the creation and use of district materials and professional development. Resources are available on each content area page listed on the right side of this site.
