The challenges of the 21st century are driving innovative research connecting STEM, economics, governance, and social sciences. We seek out the best solutions that are advancing a positive future and turn them into age-appropriate curriculum. Why? Because all students deserve an education that will prepare them for a new definition of success: one that connects individual, community, and global wellbeing.
It's a big challenge, but our Curriculum Resource Center (CRC) has you covered. It's a digital content library built from the most promising global advances across disciplines. K20 educators enjoy fully-developed, research-based materials that connect language arts, history, math, and more. All K12 lessons are aligned to Common Core. Whether you want a full course or a guiding framework, the CRC's four resource collections give you the tools you need.
1) Fully-developed units and course modules support coherent learning and include digital student booklets, instructor’s guides, and multimedia support materials. Sample titles: Diverse and Sustainable Communities, Brownfields Redevelopment, Food and Energy Systems, Electricity and the Carbon Footprint.
2) A searchable database of K-20 lessons offers a portfolio of lessons across disciplines and grade bands. Users select materials by grade level, topic, discipline, concept, and more. K12 teachers can instantly align lessons to Common Core standards.
3) Curriculum maps and Best Practices whitepapers support big-picture curriculum planning.
4) Tools for designing project-based, experiential learning guide you to develop effective instruction using our signature Inquiry as Narrative approach to instructional design.
