Celebrating Differences - Research Activity (Document)
Wouldn’t it be boring if we were all the same? No two people in the world are exactly alike. We each have characteristics that make us special and unique. It is important to celebrate and appreciate these differences.

Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
