Integrated High School Curriculum Design in Azerbaijan

A TIEC team consisting of university education faculty and high school teachers developed an integrated, problem-based curriculum for a four-year, American-style secondary school in Baku, Azerbaijan. The secondary school was affiliated with the American University in Baku, also designed and operated by TIEC. The TIEC team developed the curriculum design principles and the four-year structure and courses for the first year (9th grade) in mathematics, science, social studies, language arts, and technology. Course designs included learning standards, course objectives, topic outlines, and textbooks.
