UW-Eau Claire Faculty to Work on
UW System, DPI Project
MAILED: Jan. 24, 2000|
Three faculty from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire will be among those working on a project to improve the alignment of the kindergarten through
12th-grade curriculum and entry-level UW System courses.
UW-Eau Claire faculty involved with the project are Dr. Mary Meiser, professor of English; Dr. Helen Dale, professor of English; and Dr. Scott Oates, assistant professor of English.
The UW System and Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction project will be particularly important given the changes to K-12 curriculum that will result from the state's adoption of the Wisconsin Model Academic Standards.
The Curriculum Articulation Project will bring together working groups in each of the five core academic areas. Each group will include K-12 faculty and UW faculty. Staff from DPI, the UW System Office of Academic Affairs and CESA also will participate. UW-Eau Claire faculty will be part of the English Language Arts working group.
The project will begin Feb. 3 with a general meeting of all working group members. The project outcomes will be disseminated during a final project meeting in February 2001, as well as at state and regional conferences. It is hoped that the project will provide a model for others in Wisconsin as they work to articulate clear and rigorous academic standards at all levels.
