“Having confidence in one’s ideas does not mean ‘I know my ideas are right’; it means ‘I am willing to try out my ideas.'”   ~Eleanor Duckworth

To me, learning is not just about academic content and right answers, it is also about emotions, personal connections, and coming up with ideas. Deep learning involves asking questions and stirring up feelings. No matter the age, I introduce students to subjects that are topical, controversial, and interdisciplinary. I use grander questions, such as genetic engineering, pesticides, energy consumption— questions for which there are not yet right answers— as reasons to learn the details. The following is a sampling of curricula I either developed from scratch, or modified from existing curricula.
