    Section Description
    Curriculum Maps

    Empowers Educators to see how a given course may fit their needs, and makes it easy for Educators to modify or pick and choose courses, lessons or task sets as needed. The maps show how the main goals of a course are met and filter into the lesson plan goals and other resources. This allows Educators to make the best choice when choosing materials to use. The curriculum maps also help Educators address the concerns of stakeholders such as students, parents, school administrators, and local and national education officials. The maps also provide details on how each lesson plan and its associated courseware address particular standards like the CSTA standard or Australian digital technology achievement standard.

    If your system isn't listed, you can use the curriculum maps provided to create what you need.
