It's easy to be distracted by the little things.
Curriculum can be a guide or it can be a prison.
When learning is driven by teaching more than teaching is guided by learning, things go sideways in a real hurry... learning turns into school... exploration fades into following a rubric and an education becomes an obligation...
When I read a curriculum, I spend most of my time looking at the few general outcomes, largely ignoring the large list of specific outcomes. But I'll admit, it's not easy... Because accountability is about those outside of the classroom controlling those in the classroom, it's easier to comply than it is to construct something better. Quite frankly, the risk might bring nothing good. And more's the pity.
Because that which is measured is controlled, it is preferable for those who wish to control to demand the minutia and those who inspire and nurture real learning would prefer the vague.
