The Curriculum and Instruction Add-on Licensure program is designed for those interested in advancing their current understandings of curriculum and instruction within the K-12 system. Through a five-course sequence, students will examine research-based strategies which can be applied in today’s schools. Both the theoretical and practical application of these instructional strategies are examined. Models of curriculum design will be explored and evaluated to understand how historical and social factors have influenced the design of curriculum. Those interested in advancing their understanding of curriculum and instruction as well as those interested in leadership positions within schools and districts will find practical applications attained through the program’s goals. The program aligns with the North Carolina Professional Teaching Standards and North Carolina Graduate Standards.
