Summer of Content 2010

For the third annual Summer of Content effort, Curriki solicited premium content for Grades 6–12 in science, technology, and math, and for content in ELL / ESL for all grades.

This year, the Summer of Content Awards have been granted to student-focused units which include support material for teachers. In other words, we are looking for activities, webquests, worksheets, quizzes, and games that will engage students and help make Curriki a destination for students as well as teachers.

To qualify for funding, projects met the following requirements:

  • Provide or develop comprehensive resources for a substantial unit of study
  • Use best practices in pedagogy and instructional design
  • Develop or post open source curriculum in an area of need
  • Deliver all content resources so they may be used and developed further by the Curriki community

Below is the list of grantees, along with some information about the content they've contributed.

To learn more about each person, click on his or her name to go to the My Curriki profiles. To view the content, click on the title of the unit (example: "Light Emitting Diodes.")
