As we develop curriculum for classes or because we simply want to fill holes we see in the world, we will place it here.
This is a curriculum dear to Lis’s heart and thirteen years in the making. It is a robust standards-based Algebra I curriculum with a social justice slant. Social Justice is not forced and there are a few units where it simply does not work. However, where-ever the practical application adds to the curriculum it is used.
The curriculum is spiral and scaffolded. Students work with the data in multiple modalities each lesson and are encouraged to think about their results from a practical point of view. Where data is simplified, students are asked to think about the impact of that simplification. Standards are provided for each unit.
