Don’t you love starting with an empty canvas and creating a masterpiece?  During this class you will have the opportunity to design your course of study. You’ll decide in which order you teach each unit of instruction.  You’ll also wrestle with the depth and breadth of instruction for each standard you’ve been tasked with teaching.

The final product?  A scope and sequence that is custom made by you, for you.
