"From the end spring new beginnings."
-- Pliny the Elder
There were often opportunities to do curriculum work in my former district. I was on several committees over the years that rewrote the ELA and Social Studies curricula for particular grades as well as committees that developed ESL curricula aligned with the Massachusetts frameworks and then with the WIDA standards. I enjoyed the work and it got me enthused about wanting to implement the new lessons provided as examples.
