If you’re a teacher, you have a unique opportunity to receive up to $5,000 to develop materials for UCCI (University of California Curriculum Integration) courses through UCCI’s first ever Course Resource Development Grant. These can be UCCI courses that you already teach or are planning to teach.
“Our UCCI course frameworks are just that—frameworks with unit descriptions and descriptions of every major assignment,“ says Sarah Fidelibus, Programs Director at UCCI. "We're excited because the grant gives teachers the resources to develop the day-to-day lesson plans and other instructional materials to bring frameworks to life, not for just themselves, but for others too."
Materials created will be added to UCCI’s library of courses as a free resource for other teachers. This will help support UCCI’s mission to serve teachers and to expand opportunities for applied learning throughout California so that students have access to college and career preparation.
