Samples of Teacher Lessons
The CIRLI model for infusing real life issues into standards-aligned curricula IS NOT a mandate to re-tool the entire curriculum nor is it an add-on to an already full program.
The CIRLI model IS another tool in the teacher’s toolbox, one that can be readily used to incorporate relevance and real-life learning into lessons and units across the K-12 curriculum consistent with existing learning objectives based on the Common Core State Standards, state content standards, and school-based curriculum goals.
Teachers who have been trained in using the CIRLI model to build classroom-based lessons offer these samples as models, going across many disciplines, grade-levels, and school demographics.
