If your child is bored or unhappy in school, tell the teacher that this connected curriculum is a good match for how your child learns best. Ask if the teacher will experiment with adding connected curriculum to the day or week to meet your child's needs. Below are ten easy ways to include more connected curriculum in the classroom:
National Writing Project
See what opportunities for teaching writing are in your area. Their professional development always taps your knowledge, and experiences, to create amazing writing experiences and growth for your students.
d.school K12 Lab Network
The d.school at Stanford has spearheaded efforts to design products and experiences with an emphasis on needs of the end user. The K12 lab is part of this effort focused on education. They have online and in person experiences throughout the country, that can add many ideas for connected curriculum for students.
Another initiative out of Stanford, this is a comprehensive effort to create higher level thinking math instruction, and has online professional development as well as courses.
