Curriculum Development

The word curriculum is often used to refer to both the collective of all lessons within a given subject, (i.e. "The history curriculum covers The American Revolution in December") as well as the collective instruction a school offers overall (Harvard University offers a rigid, highly revered curriculum).  Interestingly enough, the English word curriculum was adopted from the Latin word of the same spelling, which meant "race course".

While race courses differ from location to location, offering varying duration, terrain and obstacles to contend with, they share one defining characteristic; no matter whether a course is curvy or straight; rocky or grassy; endurance-driven or intensity-driven; the universality shared by all race-courses, worldwide, is that they offer the same core objective: to reach the end and finish the race. Completion is the challenge, regardless of the exercise.

In modern education, there are all types of theories, strategies and expectations to be kept in mind when planning a subject's course of study. But the end goals tend to be shared by most institutions- educate the students as best as possible.


AROV offers multiple curriculum development services available to meet our clients' needs. We write curricula from scratch, abiding by the specifications set forth by our clients. We also take existing curricula, or established frameworks and tailor them to meet new or different specifications. Whether it be a need for creativity, organization or time, we build based upon whatever it is that you're looking for, with a baseline consideration that courses should be engaging, rigorous and relevant to what approaches will work best with the students enrolled in the class. 


Curricula are the software of education, and as such, they can come in many different presentations. When designing a curriculum, we focus on the goals submitted to us, which are usually the class objectives, and use an Understanding By Design approach, with respect for the critical skills identified in the hierarchy of Bloom's Taxonomy, to map out how best to achieve those goals. Our lessons are designed to be constructive and to support active learning, so we embrace dynamic, vibrant approaches. We can accommodate most expectations desired.
