TSD District Spanish Curriculum Maps/Scope and Sequence-updated 6/13/14


  1. Curriculum maps are a snapshot of the course. Each map includes the Colorado Standards Prepared Graduate Competences at the top of the map. The map also includes the target proficiency level for the standards in the first two columns on the left.
  2. The scope and sequence documents detail each thematic unit. Notice that the themes guide the instruction and not the text. See how the text is listed under resources along with other ideas. The text is one of the resources. The scope follows the Understanding by Design framework (backward design) with enduring understanding and guiding questions, etc. It includes more details about context, structure, and culture as well as assessment possibilities, which at the moment is general.
  3. The learner targets are for students. This document is in 'I can" student statements.
  4. The learner target bubble sheets helps students set goals for each unit
  5. The UbD unit organizer is for teachers to help them guide and build their units. TSD UbD template:
