Unique Student Learning Opportunities:

Critical Thinking

The Course Challenge is an independent problem solving activity that can be used as a capstone project or an ongoing experience. Students work through steps to research and defend solutions to a real-world problem related to their learning.


Each lesson contains engaging formative practice activities and a self-graded quiz.

Diagnostic Pre-test

The unit pre-test assesses prior content and vocabulary knowledge, allowing teachers to personalize learning for students.

Vocabulary First

Each lesson provides an opportunity for students to learn relevant vocabulary before they jump into the content. This helps them quickly comprehend the lesson content while avoiding common misunderstandings.


Students answer questions about what they learned in a course journal. This reflection combines with teacher feedback to help learning stick.

Project vs. Test

All lessons contain a summative test as well as a unit project. Students can use either of these to demonstrate mastery of the material.
