Curriculum and Lesson Planning

Description

If you are employed in a state that uses a registry to track professional development hours, you will be able to provide your registry ID (Stars, MOPID, Registry or other ECE ID#) after you have completed the quiz for the course. If you pass the quiz we will report your course completion to the state registry using the registry ID that you provide.
Lesson planning can seem overwhelming for a new teacher and for a more experienced teacher, it can be hard to keep it fresh.
