New/updated resources. New NGPF resources have been added, including more MOVE, PLAY, and other types of activities. Third party resources have also been curated within all lessons.
New formatting. All Semester Course documents have received a visual upgrade. The new formatting also improves accessibility, providing a better experience for those who use tools like screen readers.
Intro, Learn It, Do It. Lesson Guides and Student Activity Packets will now be organized using Intro, Learn It, and Do it sections, ensuring each lesson flows in a way that gives students an engaging introduction, vital foundational information, and an opportunity to apply their learning.
Updated Exit Tickets. Exit ticket questions have been updated for content and will now be standardized as multiple choice questions across all lessons for easier grading.
Streamlined Organization. Sample Student Activity Packets have been removed and answer keys have been integrated into the Lesson Guides. This means fewer documents to manage and easier organization!
Nearpod Updates. As each block of newly updated units is released, Nearpod updates will follow--typically one week later.
