It is important that your IA projects align to curriculum standards. Utah Education Network ( uen.org ) provides Utah students and educators access to statewide electronic network and systems for the delivery of educational services including the core curriculum.

If you live outside Utah, you can find your core standards from this site: http://edstandards.org/Standards.html.

In these activities, you will explore how to find the Utah core, lessons plans, and educational links on the UEN website by doing the following:

  1. Use some resources in example topics.
  2. Share what you find with your group members.
  3. Then do a self-assessment by reviewing the Checklist.
