District 102 uses a variety of resources to support instruction and empowers teachers to tailor lessons to the needs of their individual students and classrooms. As a District, we believe that teachers are best suited to craft units of instruction that are engaging, relevant and meaningful to students and must have access to high quality, supportive resources to do so. "Curricular resources" is a general term that can be represented as physical resources such as textbooks, workbooks, games or manipulatives; digital resources such as online applications, hardware or software; pedagogical resources such as an instructional practice, theory or framework; or professional resources such as a content expert, professional network or organization.
While teachers draw from a wide array of tools and resources, District 102 has adopted several foundational curricular resources that are the basis for our instruction and support the District's instructional approaches. You will find information about these resources below.
