C3 worked with Gareth Stevens Publishing to produce, in a two month period, over 180 teacher guides to complement reading materials designed to supplement Harcourt School Publishing’s “Mathematics Concept Readers” publications for grades K–6.  Each guide was developed with tiered versions for student comprehension abilities and included:

 

•teacher resources on content;

•student prerequisite skill needs; and,

•activities for student comprehension.

 

C3 managed the manuscript writing, layout design and production, and proofing and editing.  The project plan and schedule included:

 

•peer review;

•spiraling client review; and

•revisions based on changes to the reader content due to simultaneous development of the readers by the client.

 

C3 managed a staff of 10 writers, 5 designers and two editors for this project, with all guides delivered on schedule and within budget.

C3 was hired by JASON to align resources to state standards, develop lessons, and provide expert panel review of the program’s online courses.  The highlighted projects demonstrate C3’s expertise in the areas of content alignment with learning standards and teacher resource materials development.

 

JASON Mission Center Learning Objects HTML Mark-Up: C3 assisted in the launch of the JASON Project’s “JASON Mission Center,” an online gateway for teaching materials and resources for its Operation: Monster Storms curriculum. C3 provided:

 

*html mark-up for approximately 200 learning objects (including online labs, briefing articles, charts and images, and other resources)

*cataloging of the resources with required metadata

*alignment of content to National Science Education Standards, Ohio Science Content Standards, and Department of Defense Science Content Standards.

 

C3 organized a work plan and schedule to complete all tasks in one month, while including two rounds of client review.

 

Independent Review of Teacher Materials:  C3 was contracted to review the online and print teacher resources accompanying JASON’s curriculum Operation: Monster Storms.  C3 provided science education SME review of the quality and comprehensiveness of teacher support materials in the areas of teacher tips, strategies, extensions, interdisciplinary connections, teaching with inquiry, and authentic assessment.

 

Alignment and Cataloging of Content Resources: C3 has been contracted on a repeat basis to catalog JASON student and teacher resources and align them to 49 of 50 states’ science learning standards.  C3 developed the alignment spreadsheets and used JASON’s online VLE cataloging tool to catalog and align the resources.  Over a period of three years, C3 aligned hundreds of learning objects to thousands of science standards.

C3 has an ongoing working relationship with the National Council of Teachers of English to provide content development, technical support, and professional development.  Since 2002, C3 has worked with NCTE on the design and development of interactive resources, lessons, an online calendar, and teacher professional development resources.  

 

NCTE’s work in professional development is extensive and includes emphasis on differentiated learning, 21st century skills, and multi-modal media literacy.  NCTE contracted C3 to create a suite of online courses for professional development in these areas.  C3 has thus far created two online professional development courses for NCTE, and has worked with the organization to outline several additional courses for future development.

 

Professional Development Course:

Differentiating Literature Instruction: Teaching Shakespeare to Diverse Learners

 

Designed around a series of framing questions, this course engages the learner in observations and investigations into his or her own teaching style as a gateway to considering the learning styles of students in the classroom.  The course is organized by framing questions, each supported by “trigger” activities, readings, reflections in a course blog and/or discussions in full-group discussion forums and smaller study group discussion, and exploration activities.

 

.

Professional Development Course:

Engaging Media-Savvy Students

 

This course was developed as an online alternative to an existing print resource with the same title.  Using an inquiry model, C3 designed online activities, interactions, and resource activities to help teachers instill multi-modal media literacy in students.

 

ReadWriteThink

 

Throughout this same time period, C3 has worked with the partnership between International Reading Association and the National Council of Teachers of English to provide online content support for its K–12 website (ReadWriteThink).

 

Online Lesson Development: In addition to the professional development courses outlined above, C3 develops and revises lessons for the IRA/NCTE ReadWriteThink website. Responsibilities include research, writing, editorial, fact-checking, and HTML mark-up. Sample titles incorporating themes appropriate and engaging for students in grades 7–12 include:

 

•Stairway to Heaven: Examining Metaphor in Popular Music

•Students as Creators: Exploring Copyright

•Copyright Law: From Digital Reprints to Downloads

•Technology and Copyright Law: A "Futurespective"

 

Note: Lessons include development of student interactives created through the use of an interactives generator designed and developed by C3 for the MarcoPolo Education Foundation.

 

Calendar: C3 worked with both organizations on the development of a calendar highlighting famous literary professionals, historic events, and related student classroom activities.
