The resources collected here are intended to help 8th Grade Teachers implement the School District of Philadelphia's Core Curriculum during the 1st Report Period. In particular, these resources support the use of the Holt "Introduction to Matter" Short Course as part of an inquiry-centered science learning environment.

The site is still growing, with new sites being added throughout the report period.

This website is a collaborative effort of The Franklin Institute's Teacher Education Staff and the School District of Philadelphia's Office of Curriculum and Instruction.
