Get Paid to Share Your Curriculum with Curriki's Summer of Content
Do you have an instructional unit or course you're proud of that you'd
like to publish and get paid for? Interested in earning money this
summer to develop a new unit that will be shared with a global
audience? For our Summer of Content initiative, Curriki is soliciting
elementary and middle school content in ELA, math, science, and social
studies. The content we're seeking will consist of a full unit of
study and will be delivered as open source (including editable formats
and publication under the Curriki License) so they may be used and
developed further by a broad community. Apply by April 15th, 2009.
A Listening Map: The Mark Twain Waltz - Students listen to this piano
composition with a listening map in this interdisciplinary unit on
Mark Twain for students in middle school or high school. They create
their own listening map (a visual description of what's happening in
the music) using graphics.
Children's Engineering: Stability in Design - This unit is a wonderful
introduction for upper elementary students to the world of
engineering. Students will move from the construction of a spaghetti
cantilever, to a paper skyscraper, to a crash test wall and finally
build and test earthquake-proof houses. The materials needed are
simple and inexpensive.
Grade 8 Mathematics - A member has gathered several resources shared
by other Curriki members and organized them into a collection to use
when teaching 8th grade math. The topics vary from multiplication
practice -- using an animation -- to a full unit on geometric
AP History: The Great Depression - High school students studying U.S.
history can use these tutorials to learn more about the Great
Depression, or they can browse through the table of contents for this
course for topics about post-Civil War America.
