Polar Tracks

What Is It? Polar Tracks allows teachers to make or find web-based lessons or collections of web sites that are related to topics related to the work done by PRISM. These lessons are called "Tracks."

Where Do These Lessons Come From? Teachers and teachers-in-training have made these lessons using an online utility called TrackStar to collect and annotate web sites they have found on the Internet. All material in TrackStar is reviewed by TrackStar staff and is appropriate for student use. We do, however, strongly recommend that you preview any Track just prior to using it, as web sites do change.

TrackStar is sponsored by ALTec , a nonprofit group which sponsors a variety of projects, like the PRISM K-12 Outreach site and HPR*TEC . ALTec is dedicated to helping teachers utilize technology in their classrooms.
