Use ProQuest standards-based learning activities (SBLA) to face this challenge head-on! These lessons offer combined strategies for enriching your practice, meeting curricular requirements and getting your students online and on-task.

The plans are provided as downloadable documents so you can edit them as necessary, tailoring them to your specific curriculum or classroom management situation. All plans (except those for K-2) provide two sections— teacher procedures and student handouts.
