"It's   Just   a   Piece   of   paper..."

Your curriculum document can be much more than a piece of paper, depending on the way you create it. Many documents are created for the sole purpose of an educational audit. But others have found a way to create a working document that defines their daily experiences, and which evolves each year. Here are some great resources if you'd like to evaluate your own curriculum.
