“I’m a middle school teacher [who has] been using curriculum that’s mainly written for high schoolers, but they are piloting a middle school package that would fit what we do even better,” Hudson said.
Centennial Campus Magnet Middle School is one of the schools that piloted the middle school curriculum, although the school has used Curriculum Pathways since it began its one-to-one laptop program with eighth graders in 2007.
“It fits the curriculum. We’re still able to teach the standard course of study, [but Curriculum Pathways] has engaging lessons. When you’re using technology, the kids are going to be engaged,” said George Ward, lead teacher at Centennial.
SAS Curriculum Pathways is now used by 8,100 schools and more than 41,000 educators, Friend said.
