    CTE Course Blueprint

     

    A course blueprint lays out the framework of the curriculum for a given course.

     

    The blueprint includes units of instruction, essential standards in each unit, and the specific objectives for each essential standard. The blueprint illustrates the relative weight of the units, essential standards, and objectives within the course.  Each essential standard and objective reflects the intended level of learning through two dimensions that reflect the Revised Bloom’s Taxonomy (RBT).  The Knowledge Dimension is represented with letters A-D, and the Cognitive Process Dimension is represented by numbers 1-6. 

     

    The blueprint should be used by teachers to plan the course of work for the year, prepare daily lesson plans, and construct instructionally valid interim assessments.  Statewide assessments are aligned directly with the course blueprint. This blueprint and other aligned curriculum products and assessments are developed using the Revised Bloom’s Taxonomy.
