    We are piloting the Education and the Environment curriculum and love it. The modules are correlated with CCSS and teach select H-SS standards to mastery. In a multiple grades classroom, we find that we are ALWAYS teaching select standards in H-SS and Science. Do you have suggestions in how to show that this curriculum best meets the needs of our school (it did get the higher score when we compared to what is currently adopted).

    • Thanks Jenn, this is an excellent integrative approach to teaching both science and history. With your natural setting in Big Lagoon, there are endless opportunities for place based learning. Please keep us apprised of your progress.

    • To show alignment and how your curriculum meets student need. Begin with assessing your vision and consider creating a crosswalk between the curriculum and vision. This not only focuses intent but it helps the community understand the instructional shift.
