Heartland AEA defines curriculum alignment as "the extent to which and how well all policy elements (e.g., content, instruction and assessment) work together to guide instruction and, ultimately, facilitate and enhance student learning (Webb, 1997)."

  • Support for meeting Iowa Core implementation requirements
  • Training and consultation on foundational alignment concepts, terms and issues
  • Needs assessment and planning for alignment work
  • Training and consultation on collecting alignment data
  • Training and coaching on how to use alignment data for decision making
  • Links to helpful documents and other resources
