An Introduction to
Supportive Curriculums™

The Evolution of Curriculum, Course Content, Management and Delivery to Urban Communities
 

Supportive Curriculums™
Modeling for Future Growth

Supportive Curriculums or SC’s are defined as content and culturally specific frameworks, tools and methods, designed to provide relevance, practicality and applicability to subject matter. SC’s are a new category of education support materials delivered in a Universal Design for Learning (UDL) model, but unlike UDL, SC’s are designed to produce “practical learners”. SC’s are meant to operate as a support system to traditional and non-traditional learners and learning environments.

Comprehension Focused

Subject areas or courses are generally presented and taught according to an outline. These outlines are presented in what we call macro-content format. This is the area where SC’s are profoundly important. SC’s are presented in a micro-content format. This means, they are presented in small, content specific modules with the intent to "drill-down" on specific areas of subject matter. For example, the subject of fractions, under the Supportive Curriculums format, could mean dozens of micro-content modules. Richly engaging, fun but more importantly, practical – SC’s are the future. SC’s are available in every conceivable format for all mobile devices, including phones, laptops, tablets, as well as desktops – ios or android. SC’s are cloud-based and available every minute of every day for continuous learning. Research has shown that aesthetic, topics and content, delivered in culturally relevant formats provide a profoundly more impactful space for learning to occur. eduocity has created the format and the delivery vehicle.

Infusion
Collaborative Strategies for Addressing Change

The primary goal of eduocity is to work collaboratively with educational and community partners in the areas of academic, professional, and personal development. This work is grounded in the beliefs that practical learning environments must contain and address:

  • specific needs of children and communities with a focus on achieving learning and performance goals in a practical manner;
  • the creation of collaborative multi-cultural engagement in which teachers, administrators, families and learners are directly involved in the learning experience

  • curriculums, macro content, supportive curriculums, micro content and processes that are research‐based and proven in practice; and

  • academic, career, business, community, and cultural realities while continuously evaluating and assessing outputs to ensure effectiveness in meeting the learner’s learning goals.


We must formulate “one-tent” solutions based on the advancement of new academic and social ecological systems that operate outside of traditional barriers to collaboration.  A new wave has been created through eduocity that spurs the development of “Urban Education Models” or models specific to urban communities.  This new wave begins with a question that must be answered by us.  The sky is no longer the limit.
