Curriculum in Action


You are invited to submit curriculum for publication on the MSCI Web site by providing the requested information (see application below). Submissions in the form of lesson plans or unit plans are received and reviewed by the MSCI editorial staff. Feedback will be provided by e-mail.

When submitting a lesson plan, be as concise as possible, yet convey enough information for the lesson to be carried out by others. If the model is a unit of study, you may want to choose one lesson to submit and make reference to its being part of a unit. Grammar and mechanics reflect professionalism. Lesson-specific worksheets or graphic organizers may be included. Internet links should be checked for current availability. Please do not submit any copyrighted material.

Plans should be clear, well organized and easy to follow. There should be enough elaboration in the procedure so that the beginning teacher, as well as the veteran, can understand and use the lesson.

You may submit more than one entry by repeating this process.
