Correlations to Tennessee Learning Expectations

TNSWEP activities teach concepts included in Tennessee Learning Expectations. The following matrices include lesson plans with a strong correlation to the TN Learning Expectations in the areas of science, social studies, and health. A lesson with a strong correlation emphasizes a concept sufficiently so the lesson could be used to introduce a topic. If the lesson reviews a concept it is considered a weak correlation and is not included in the chart. For example, a crossword puzzle with eight vocabulary words is considered a review and is not included in the matrix. The files below are in PDF format:
