DISCUSSION & ACTIVITY GUIDES

The guides here are meant to inspire creative ways of using MOMENT with students.  Each one has variations to consider.  Use them as they are or as a starting point to develop your own lesson plan.  We will continue to add and refine as we receive feedback from educators.  Take a look!!
