Bank Street Curriculum Project
Bank Street Curriculum Project is an ongoing endeavor between the School for Children (SFC) and Continuing Professional Studies (CPS) to provide open curriculum resources and program guides for teachers. These resources are developed by SFC teachers and embody all the principles of children's growth and learning that were derived from Bank Street's philosophy of progressive education. This project continues the mission of CPS to provide rich materials and resources for the professional development of teachers worldwide. These resources are free and open to all educators.
