The Quincy Catholic Elementary School (QCES) teachers have started an exciting new initiative.  The teachers from Blessed Sacrament, St. Dominic, St. Francis and St. Peter are working together on curriculum mapping.  The goals for this year are to create a common science curriculum preschool through eighth grade for the four schools and to provide collaboration time for the seventy-three QCES teachers.

        In August and September, our teachers participated in two professional development sessions on curriculum mapping and read the book Mapping the Big Picture: Integrating Curriculum and Assessment K-12 by Heidi Hayes Jacobs.  The teachers are working on this project with local educational consultant Elizabeth Brown.  The funding for the project was obtained through a Tracy Family Foundation grant.
