Gagné's 9 Events of Learning
Spider Learning's ORB is the first comprehensive middle school curriculum designed to enable the Art of Teaching by applying the Science of Learning.
Every lesson has a consistent structure of 10 focused resources that parallel Gagné's Events and the standard lesson format that most teachers use to plan. We refer to each of these instructional resources or "bits" of the lesson as ORBits.
ORBits align to what our teachers already know and understand...
We have added an objective specific pre-diagnostic to each lesson that provides the teacher real time data to make formative instructional decisions.
In addition to our own proprietary content, we also provide multiple OER for each lesson and allow teachers to upload their own content to share with students.
