I am very happy to let you know that you can now download all 442 pages of the ZBL core geography curriculum.
Just take a look at that Table of Contents!
Members can download the entire PDF or units at the Members Download Page.
There are still a few tweaks I want to make before I print the book copies. But I wanted to get this out there to you in digital form ASAP. I will order the printed copies to go out to Kickstarter backers this week.
I call this the “core” curriculum because it includes the main lessons and projects to teach middle school geography. I will continue to add more resources that will be available digitally on this website for all members. Over time I’ll be uploading PowerPoints, video lectures, accommodated resources for special education, extension activities, and more. I hope to base these resources on what you think is most valuable, so please let me know!
There are 70 daily lessons in the curriculum right now, split across 10 units. The ZBL geography curriculum also incorporates student projects and presentations. It is flexible, but a fast paced course could be taught in half a school year. More reasonably, it can serve as the backbone to a full year of Geography, supplemented with local integration projects, guest speakers, or any other required curriculum for your district or school.
Thank you so much for your support! I feel very excited to deliver this to you.
Please, continue to give feedback. I’ve heard of some great work that you have been doing in schools and you can help make this curriculum even better!
