The tools below are of two main kinds and are briefly described here:

  • Lesson plans which have been developed, based on the experience of teachers who used the original plans, and which could be used in your classroom.
  • Narratives which provide an account of what happened in FaSMEd classrooms and from which you can develop your own lesson ideas.
