I have been doing research on the use of standardized curriculum in the classroom with the hope of implementing it into my personal teaching strategies and philosophies. Standardized curriculum provides a uniform education for all students in the classroom, and it also keeps teachers on a strict lesson plan with little to no room for deviation. However, I feel that the individual needs of the students are not addressed or taken into consideration with this curriculum format. I am in need of assistance, whether it be opinions, suggestions or past experiences, with the standardized curriculum format. What would you recommend?
