CUrriculum RAtings by TEachers (CURATE) is an SEA-led initiative to identify high-quality curricular materials aligned to Massachusetts standards. Beginning in fall 2018, the SEA is convening panels of Massachusetts teachers to review and rate evidence on the quality and alignment of specific curricular materials. Reports summarizing the panels’ findings will appear on starting in early 2019. Publishers of curricular materials are invited to submit information on their products for consideration. Products must (a) support a comprehensive (rather than supplemental or intervention) English Language Arts/Literacy, Mathematics, or Science and Technology/Engineering curriculum and (b) determined by a rigorous, educator-driven review (such as EdReports) to meet expectations for alignment to college- and career-ready standards. Submissions meeting these requirements are reviewed by a CURATE panel. Three main sources of evidence inform every CURATE review: (1) rigorous, educator-led reviews of quality and alignment, primarily those available from EdReports; (2) information publishers submit directly to SEA in response to specific prompts, often including sample materials such as lesson plans; and (3) perceptual data from Massachusetts teachers who have experience working with the materials under review. Panelists look for triangulation, valuing findings supported by more than one of these varied data sources. Rubrics each have two domains: standards alignment and classroom application. Standards alignment references the Massachusetts learning standards and the curriculum frameworks that contain them. Classroom application, informed by the state’s Model Teacher Evaluation Rubric, is composed of three criteria: accessibility for students, usability for teachers, and impact on student learning. Teach Plus and the Rennie Center are working together to support the Department in facilitating the CURATE reviews.
