1 Teaching & Learning extensions come in four different formats. Reading extensions are articles for students to read as homework. Online extensions have the same format as the (online) extensions in the content modules. Interview extensions are projects that involve interviewing and/or engaging in instructional activities with children, and typically take a few weeks. Paper extensions need to be downloaded, (optionally) printed, and completed between two classes.
