New Curriculum Version in Development

June 15, 2009 - Expect not only new and improved maps for animal tracking on the web site, but a new version of the Signals of Spring Curriculum in late 2009. "Teachers now have more options for animal tracking, and classroom activities demonstrating increased student performance are being integrated into the newest version of lessons," reports Project Director Glen Schuster. "The focus is on the ease of use for diverse classroom settings to allow for learning goals to be accomplished in several ways."
