Editorial Reviews

Carol Ann Tomlinson
"This guide provides clear, intelligent support for teachers and administrators to explore the possibilities that the Parallel Curriculum Model brings to educators and students, and to translate those possibilities into action in the classroom."
Carol V. Horn
"We have been using the Parallel Curriculum Model for several years and are excited to have this valuable resource for teachers and central office staff. The strategies, tools, and activities embedded throughout the guide bring the concepts and ideas to life in a way that is engaging, useful, and easy to implement. This is an excellent professional development tool for curriculum design that will lead to rich, challenging learning experiences for all students."
Jennifer Beasley
"In my experience teaching graduate students about the Parallel Curriculum Model, I am always looking for a variety of ways to expose them to the intent of each parallel. This guide is an invaluable resource in helping us talk about and practice the model. The varied examples and practical lessons will be fantastic building blocks I can use in my work with teachers!"

Consulting Description

Kathy Glass is a former teacher who consults and presents nationally with K-12 teachers and administrators at schools, districts, conferences, and county offices of education. She offers a blend of professional development (PD) topics to target audiences in areas affecting curriculum and instruction. To deliver customized PD, she assists educators with strategic planning to determine objectives. Then she tailors PD based on requested topics such as, but not limited to:

· highlights of the ELA Common Core Standards

· implementation of the ELA Common Core or other standards-based curriculum using a backward design approach

· essential understandings and guiding questions to frame curriculum and instruction

· differentiated tools and instructional strategies

· pre-, formative, summative, and self-assessments

· alignment of six-traits writing instruction and assessment to curriculum goals

· unit and yearlong curriculum maps

· text-dependent questions to facilitate close reading, and more.

To help educators directly translate what she presents into effective classroom practice that impacts students, Kathy can provide a variety of PD opportunities (e.g., presentations, lesson demonstrations and modeling, coaching, collaborative unit design, etc.).

She is the author of six books: Mapping Comprehensive Units to the English Language (ELA) Arts Common Core Standards, 6-12 (May, 2013); Mapping Comprehensive Units to the ELA Common Core Standards, K-5 (© 2012); Lesson Design for Differentiated Instruction, Grades 4-9 (©2009); Staff Development Guide for the Parallel Curriculum (©2009); Curriculum Mapping: A Step-by-Step Guide to Creating Curriculum Year Overviews (©2007); and Curriculum Design for Writing Instruction: Creating Standards-Based Lesson Plans and Rubrics (©2005). In addition, Glass has served as a reader and reviewer for Reader’s Handbook: A Student Guide for Reading and Learning (2002, Great Source Education Group) and as a contributing writer and consultant for the Heath Middle Level Literature series (1995, DC Heath and Co).
