Say Hello to Starter Sheets

Starter Sheets are a 'one-stop-shop' for all the data related to a resource. They provide information such as planning, preparation and implementation times, lesson objectives and success indicators, curriculum codes, and suggestions for differentiation. Also included are the resource's demonstrated higher-order thinking skills, and our 21st Century Skills, which are the general capabilities required by students in these modern times. There's even a 'Make It Buzz' section that suggests how to make our already engaging resources even more fun!

All the pedagogical information related to a resource in one easy document!
