Curriculum and Instruction

The Office of instructional support services manages the curriculum and ensures that both teaching and learning are taking place. MPS follows Alabama Department of Education guidelines, teaching standards and state approved curriculum.

We are here to help students learn. Our focus is to prepare the students of Montgomery County for life.

The relationship between curriculum and instruction is very close. Curriculum is essentially a design, or roadmap for learning. Therefore, it focuses on knowledge and skills that are important to learn. Instruction is the means by which learners can achieve. To meet the needs of the 21st century learner and achieve the student outcomes, students must:

  • Adopt a 21st century curriculum that blends thinking and innovation skills; information, media, and ICT literacy; and life and career skills in context of core academic subjects and across interdisciplinary themes
  • Employ methods of 21st century instruction that integrate innovative and research-proven teaching strategies, modern learning technologies, and real world resources and contexts.
