If you have not yet used our materials but are planning to do so in the coming school year, provide an explanation of which lessons you plan to incorporate and how they fit into your existing class model. Applications are due by 11:59pm EDT on Friday, April 7, 2017. Those who are selected will be notified on or around April 24.
