The Curry/Samara Model(CSM) is an integrated, standards based approach to curriculum development that addresses differentiation from three dimensions (content, process & product). CSM is comprised of strategies related to curriculum, instruction and assessment that helps teachers to: (1) complement factual subject matter with rich, global concepts; (2) foster basic and abstract levels of thinking as related to core content; and (3) engage and assess students through traditional as well as innovative, authentic products.
