Curriculum units to help young people learn about ethical and responsible online behaviour.

Anne Whaits's curator insight, January 31, 2013 4:19 PM

"Four units comprise the curriculum resources. Each unit consists of standalone yet complementary lesson plans that play off a creative rights scenario presented through a case study.

Each unit has 4-6 of these project-oriented activities, one of which serves as the culminating lesson for the unit. Guiding questions help set the expectation for what students learn, and pre/post assessments establish baseline knowledge to gauge student learning. Modification and Extension suggestions recommend ways to abridge or expand the activities within the unit, and provide tips for engaging parents and peers outside of the classroom.

You’ll have to register to download the actual units (PDF format)."

Free Physics Curriculum and Tutorials - Five J's Homeschool

Free Physics Curriculum and Tutorials - Five J's Homeschool | Curriculum resource reviews | Scoop.it

When using any curriculum for a given subject, it's always helpful to supplement with other resources. A different point of view can often make a difficult-to-grasp subject easier to understand.

That's what we've been doing with my son's science curriculum this last week. He's been studying some basic physics — speed, acceleration, force, etc. — so we've also been spending time online doing some study apart from his text.
