Teaching & Learning Resources

  • Educational researchers agree that a “guaranteed and viable curriculum” is closely associated with strong student achievement. In WCS, all schools share a scope and sequence for each grade level and course. Simply put, the scope describes what students will learn—the content and skills to be taught in the classroom. The sequence describes the order in which skills and content should be taught, ensuring that students are able to build continually on prior knowledge and build deep understanding. The WCS Scope and Sequence includes Tennessee’s academic standards, student-friendly “I can” statements that describe competencies, and resources available to teachers, students, and parents.

    WCS Scope & Sequence documents for all grade levels and subjects are listed below. Locating a specific document can be done by viewing the list below and selecting the Next and Previous buttons at the bottom, using the Search field at the top of the table that will begin filtering results as you begin typing a word, as well as sorting the table by columns. There is a tab for Elementary Scope & Sequence documents and a tab for Secondary (Middle and High School) Scope & Sequence documents.
