    I'm taking the Praxis 10011: (Elementary Education: Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment) next Saturday, and going through the study guide there are some terms I don't know and couldn't find on google.

    What are Curricular materials and how do they relate to concept maps?

    What is scope and sequence?

    Any help appreciated, Thanks.

    Scope and Sequence is the layout of your curriculum in each subject for the entire year or for a quarter or semester at a time. It is generally not detailed like a lesson plan would be, but broken up into units. For example in Math you might have 9 or 10 entries for the year - Multiplication, Division, Geometry, Place Value, Measurement, etc.

    I am really not sure on the other question, so I'll leave it to the other very smart people on this board. :D

    Breathe, please, webmistress.

    Funny: I Googled "curricular materials" (or, to be precise, the phrase "curricular materials" in double quotes) and came up with lots of hits that confirmed my suspicion: these are materials having to do with the curriculum.

    Do a TeacherGroupie a big favor, please, webmistress: spend less time being anxious about what you don't know and more time looking for connections to what you do know.
