"Curriculum 21 is the outgrowth of the work of a dynamic group of
educators worldwide attempting to help colleagues transform curriculum
and school designs to match the needs of 21st century learners. The
impetus originated from the Curriculum Mapping work developed by Dr.
Heidi Hayes Jacobs. As we examined maps emerging across the United
States and internationally. Too often, curriculum and instruction
remains dated although both students, parents, teachers and
administrators recognize the need to become current and forward thinking
in our planning."
