learn_s1 FOCUS - Secondary, Cycle 1

Focus Secondary Cycle 1 is the the culmination of three years of development by a team of teachers and instructional designers between 2003 and 2006, who shared the same vision of making sense of the Quebec Education Program for Secondary Cycle 1.  See Focus in Action (below), clips that demostrate how three teachers and their students worked their way through Cross-Curricular Competency development and subject-specific content.
