Project support
For developing a Performing Arts simulation, Kalliope, which is widely used across schools throughout the United States.  Classroom, Inc. enacted a two-year plan to create additional educational materials to be part of a comprehensive curriculum that is built around their simulations.

The materials are designed to be used for a variety of educational needs, including in enhanced literacy initiatives during the regular school day, in summer school, in after-school programs, and as a high school transition curriculum.
Kalliope is one of eight simulations chosen for this enhancement project.  It is used by students in the eighth, ninth and tenth grades. Additional materials in the program include workbooks to help students prepare, apply, review and extend the lessons learned in the simulation, and expanded teachers’ guides designed to integrate the various program components, lesson plans, and literature and math links that are used in the after-school and summer programs.
