We know that without a cohesive curriculum, teachers may struggle to create a consistent learning experience for their students.  Lessons can feel disjointed and lack a clear progression of skills.  Teachers spend a significate amount of time and effort piecing together resources and materials to create their lessons.  Nothing can create inefficiency and burnout like taking away valuable prep time.  Without a clear roadmap, it is challenging and frustrating for teachers to ensure that all language skills and learning objectives are covered throughout the year.
