Any k-12 District using Canvas to house Curriculum for the district?
We left BYOC about two and half years ago. We created our own Google Site and then used Google Docs to house our pacing guides and curriculum resources. But it gets a little crazy and unorganized. Wondering if anyone has created curriculum for their subjects all in Canvas.
After our site visit yesterday I found that the school we went to see does everything through Canvas. Their teacher websites, curriculum, and instruction.
On the curriculum side, K-2 are self contained classrooms, so they house all content areas in one course. I.E. Kindergarten would have icons for Math, Science, ELAR, and SS. 3rd and up have content specific courses that they join. These courses house their YAG, resources, snapshots, assessments, and they are working on building some exemplar lessons as well.
That is the real detail I have now, I am waiting for more information in a follow up.
Why did you you decide to make separate classes for each grade level rather than one huge class?
We are currently working on sharing our curriculum through the Canvas Commons. The curriculum yearly planning guides (YPGs) will be linked on Pages by grade level/content to their google doc and the model lessons will be built as free standing modules that teachers can in-port to their sandbox or PLC course (assigned by using our SIS) to review and then push to students.
So....I have read and reread your posts about housing your curriculum in Canvas. You have all given me some great ideas and we're going to jump in and try to incorporate as many of them as we can. 2 years later - would any of you change anything or offer new suggestions? Thanks!
We are going in to year 2 of our Curriculum being housed in Canvas. We ended up creating a series of hidden subpages, linked by buttons to all curricular documents.
I am resurrecting this thread from several years ago as our district is looking to make the move from housing curriculum in BYOC to Canvas. Currently our BYOC website is public-facing (anyone, district parent or not) can view our K-12 curriculum. Are there any districts out there that have used Canvas to house public-facing curriculum (course overviews, essential standards/learning targets, etc.?)
Appreciate any insight you can provide!
I'd love to chat with you on how this is going and see what your content looks like if you're willing to share. Please let me know- thanks!
