Sample Curricula

LDC CoreTools is an online design space where teachers can use templates to create units (known as LDC “modules”) to teach disciplinary writing skills in response to reading complex texts. Teachers can also create smaller assignments (known as LDC “mini-tasks”) to target and develop specific literacy skills and provide formative data on student skill development. Mini-tasks can be used on a stand-alone basis or within an LDC module. 

In less than a minute, you can create an LDC CoreTools account to design your own modules and mini-tasks, or to copy and adapt hundreds of nationally vetted, teacher-created modules and mini-tasks available in the LDC Curriculum Library.
