Lesson plans seem very loose, was wondering how this lesson fits into standards bases education, and SLO lessons. Do students know how and why they are creating, and what tools they are learning?​

​Yes, this particular curriculum is from 2009 and I am in the process of updating it and posting the new version that includes more current projects, written in a more formal way. I'm just trying to do 3 curriculums at once so it's taking longer than I expected!

​Very nice curriculum but only 42 week to cover may be need rethinking the time use for all topics, and based on a new technology and the social tools, redefine a little this curriculum.

Adrianne Nix

​Actually it's only 18 weeks! Remember that this is high school too so they get an hour a day to work and extra time after school or at home if they'd like.
