Two Peoria Accelerated High School team members had their lessons selected by the Arizona Department of Education and received an "ADE approved gold star icon". The lesson plans by Lisa Nahrgang and Amanda McClanahan, created during their participation in the AZTeach 21 class, will be published in the IDEAL Learning Research Manager. The Learning Resource Manager (LRM) is a searchable online database of curricular resources, including trade books, lesson plans, reading passages, media, examples, assessment items, and links to external web sites. Resources that display the "ADE Approved gold star icon" have been developed or reviewed by the Arizona Department of Education, have quality content, and are aligned to the Arizona Academic Standards.
