What's New for November 2017


Our Curriculum Pathways team has been hard at work to modernize existing resources and create new ones for you to use in your classroom this year. As always, please let us know if you cannot find a resource on a topic you're teaching. We'd love to add your suggestion to the queue!

English Language Arts

We can't get enough of technology + ELA. In fact, we created 5 new lessons this month:


Data Depot provides over 180 data sets for student use.

At Curriculum Pathways, we love data. This month, we added two more data sets bringing Data Depot's total number up to 184! Check out these new topics:

Online Professional Development

Our newest Online Professional Development offering, Building Unit Plans with Curriculum Pathways, will launch November 1. This course guides and supports you in developing instructional plans that reflect best practices for technology integration. You will progress from learning about Curriculum Pathways to developing a unit plan that incorporates its resources to meet specific instructional and curricular goals. Throughout the course you will focus on your chosen discipline/subject: finding topic-specific resources, identifying the characteristics of various resource types, working through resources (just as students would), incorporating resources into individual lesson plans, and building a comprehensive unit plan.

The course gives you the opportunity for in-depth exploration of instructional resources, provides models for effective resource integration, and encourages you to devote time to focused lesson and unit planning. The estimated time-on-task is 22 hours (2.2 CEUs).You must successfully complete CurriculumPathways ECP before you begin this course.
