Here is a suggested arrangement of the high school standards into courses, developed with funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Pearson Foundation, by a group of people including Patrick Callahan and Brad Findell.

There are five files: the first four are graphic displays of the arrangement of the standards into both traditional and integrated sequences, with the standards referred to by their codes. The fifth is a description of the arrangement with the text of the standards and commentary. 9_11 Scope and Sequence_traditional1

New for 2013: Ten new 'Classroom Challenge' formative assessment lessons for Middle School are now available, including the first five lessons for Grade 6 .
