*** PLEASE NOTE: THIS PROJECT HAS ENDED AND LESSON PLANS ARE NO LONGER UPDATED TO FIX BROKEN LINKS ***
Thank you for visiting the C·R·E·A·T·E for Mississippi Web site. The lesson plans contained in this section of our Web site were created by in-service teacher participants with the C·R·E·A·T·E for Mississippi project, our Lead Teachers. If you have not done so already, you can find a list of the participating Core Schools where these teachers work under the Grant Information section of the site.
Putting these lessons online has been a collaborative effort between the C·R·E·A·T·E for Mississippi staff members and the Lead Teachers. The Lead Teachers wrote the lessons and provided the subject-area expertise. C·R·E·A·T·E for Mississippi staff members assisted the teachers in getting the lessons formatted for the online environment. Many of the teacher authors were new to technology, as you may be, but all were working toward the same goal of creating technology-infused lessons that would engage the students and lead to an enthusiasm for learning.
A great deal of effort has gone into making the C·R·E·A·T·E for Mississippi lessons user-friendly by providing consistent formatting from one lesson to another as well as handouts that can be downloaded and reproduced for classroom use. Whenever possible examples of students' work have been included. There are even video clips with some lessons that can help you and your students understand the lesson activities better.
The majority of the C·R·E·A·T·E for Mississippi lesson plans contain links to resource Web sites. These sites have been selected by the lesson authors as appropriate for use with students in the grade level involved in the lesson activities. To the best of our knowledge, none of these Web sites contain or link to inappropriate material of any type.
It was our policy to seek permission for any photographs or materials used on this site other than our own, including the work of students. We also obtained the permission of the students' parents for any work or photographs of them posted to the C·R·E·A·T·E for Mississippi Web site. We have not used knowingly any copyrighted material belonging to an individual or group. As a matter of privacy, it is our policy not to publish the last names of students on our Web site.
