New Exemplary Modules

Congratulations to Linda Muller for her new exemplary social studies module, The Johnstown Flood of 1889, now in LDC CoreTools.


My students are not honors students. They’re considered remedial, but if you could see them working on LDC mini-tasks, doing peer editing, you would think they were honor students.

Teaching LDC modules has reinforced how brilliant my students are. Last year’s state test scores were the best I’ve ever seen; it was because I pushed my students harder than I had before.

I think these [LDC] tools have changed the way I teach. When you’re teaching for 21 years, you get sort of set in what you want done…this approach has allowed me to raise expectations of students.
