Welcome to the Maine Content Literacy Project’s Technology, Literacy, and Content (TLC) site. TLC contains a collection of unit exemplars that were designed to strategically utilize technology and literacy instruction in order to support and deepen content area understanding. The site includes units for elementary, middle, and secondary school students that provide examples of effective literacy and technology integration in the core content areas of Social Studies, English Language Arts, Math, and Science. Each unit contains unit plans, lesson plans, resource materials, instructional tools, and exemplar videos.
The units, lessons, videos, and resources are free to use by schools for instruction or professional development.
