Please feel free to adjust them to fit your student’s needs. We have worked very hard to check for duplicates, spelling errors and bad websites. However, things happen and we are human. It is recommended to follow the blueprint as stated during the field test year. A mid-term exam will be given to evaluate assessment as well as curriculum pieces so you will need to have covered the tested materials.
