Layered Curriculum

Page history last edited by Angela Cunningham 13 years, 1 month ago


The Layered-Curriculum approach features a 3-layer model that requires students to use higher level thinking skills as they work through the layers.  The layers are often connected to grades:


  • The C Layer is the basic layer of competency and reflects what all students must do.  If students successfully complete the tasks required in the C Layer, they earn a C grade.  These activities typically ask students to collect factual information.
  • The B Layer provides students with the opportunity to apply, manipulate, and play with the information they gathered while completing the C Layer activities.  Students who successfully complete the C and B Layers can earn a B grade.
  • The A Layer asks students to think critically about an issue.  It consists of questions that ask students to analyze a topic.  frequently, no right or wrong answer exists.  Students who successfully complete C, B, and A Layers can earn an A grade.
