Unique Learning: Transition Level Curriculum
While browsing the free materials offered by ULS for summer school, I noticed that the transition level materials were also available. On this level, there is a link to core materials that are supposed to be used each month when using this level. I felt like I came accross a secret treasure trove; even though these plans and materials are meant for students above the high school level, I feel like it offered me the perfect plan for my middle school students. I'm a big stickler for age appropriateness, and I love the age appropriate 'classes' and activities offered by this level. I spent at least a weekend browsing through all the materials, and figuring out how they could work within my own class schedule. I love some of their ideas, like having a daily living club, jobs club, etc. I encourage you to check it out if you haven't yet, as it won't be available for free after they take down their summer materials. I will continue to post how I plan to use some of these ideas in my classroom this year!
