1. Review (Phase 1) Reviewing the curriculum is an important part of curriculum design and implementation. "Some schools have ongoing curriculum councils that review maps, but more often mapping review teams function as a task force. The key is to begin with motivated and engaged educators reflecting a crosssection of the school or setting" (Jacobs, 2010).

2. Debate (Phase 2) In this phase, we will discuss the strengths and areas of opportunity found during the review process. We will then debate to make revisions and improvements to the curriculum guide.

3. Add Students (Phase 3) Students can add valuable input to the curriculum mapping process. "I recommend that students also be part of the review team and contribute, if possible. Each individual brings a unique perspective and voice to writing curriculum" (Jacobs, 2010).

4. Inquire (Phase 4) Constant inquiry is imperative to curriculum implementation, revision, etc. "Some specific considerations are required in examining each discipline, even as there is a need for rigorous inquiry into finding meaningful interdisciplinary connections. We cannot simply lean on what we are accustomed to teaching" (Jacobs, 2010).
