This annual report for budget year October 1, 1997-September 30, 1998 describes year 2 of the Connections Project within the Seward, Nebraska public schools. This project (a technology challenge grant) provided four major activities to help Nebraska middle and high school teachers, mentors, and community members enhance student learning through integrated curricula supported by technology. The activities included professional development for teachers to support their use of integrated curriculum and technology, curriculum development activities, community connections programs, and statewide and national dissemination of 400 project curriculum models and resources through a website and CD-ROM. The project was intended to increase the capacity of educators to teach effectively through integrated curriculum reflecting Nebraska frameworks, the creation of a cadre of 600 teachers able to help colleagues in effective use of curriculum integration and technology, improved achievement by high risk students, and creation of a national and statewide learning community of middle and secondary school teachers. Attached to the report are copies of project planning, funding, implementation, and evaluation materials.
