The Classroom Currents projects promote active learning of core language arts skills, including:
grammar and mechanics
style and usage
the writing process
istening and speaking skills
critical thinking skills
These language skills are integrated with Microsoft Office or AppleWorks applications, the software that is already on your computers. Students learn to apply their knowledge through key technology tools:
spreadsheets and databases
internet use and web page creation
To ease implementation, the projects are designed to supplement your existing textbooks and lesson plans; you don't have to start from scratch in order to integrate education technology and to stimulate effective language learning.
Classroom Currents Language Arts is designed in color-coded units for both PC and Mac users, allowing you to choose the level that is appropriate for your students. Because students learn in diverse ways, the color-coded units allow you to use multiple levels in a single classroom or across the grade.
Each Grade Pack includes:
1 Teacher Guide, including a Technology Reference Guide
25 Student Workbooks, each with its own Technology Reference Guide
2 CDs with electronic templates and samples for each lesson
online standards correlation guides matching each lesson with your state's language arts standards
