LACS teachers have resources available to give students opportunities for hands-on experiences that will help students become skilled learners able to solve many kinds of problems independently.

The NJ Department of Education has provided useful examples of lessons in their, " Frameworks for Technological Literacy." These frameworks can be accessed on the web at:http://www.state.nj.us/njded/aps/cccs/tech/frameworks/
