In the late summer of 2009, Parkrose School District started a 2 year project to deeply examine the student and staff NETS 2007 standards. Over the course of the 2 years at our monthly meetings we will discuss each standard in depth and then go back out to our buildings to share with staff the month's standard and share amongst ourselves the work all the teachers have done with students around each standard. This is a list of projects and resources teachers can use to give their students practice in and show proficiency in the NETS*S 2007 standards. This is meant to be a living document so whenever we hear about an applicable project or resource, we will add it so that this knowledge base grows for the benefit of all students.
