This is the ever changing curriculum for the Mixed Ability 7th Graders on the Discovery team at Cresthill Middle School. This curriculum was mostly designed over the past two years, but is now being adapted to an official curriculum map by the Language Arts department. This curriculum map is devided into months, and so then will this on-line curriculum resource. I hope to match my curriculum as closely to the established map as possible. In order to do this I will be referencing a digital version of this map as often as I can.
