SMILE - Science and Mathematics Initiative for Learning Enhancement
The SMILE program was designed to enhance the elementary and high school learning of Science and Mathematics through the use of the phenomenological approach. Between 1986 and 1997 each summer session participant was asked to create and publish a single concept lesson plan. These lesson plans include the materials needed, a suggested strategy and expected outcomes. There are currently almost 900 of these lesson plans available. In addition, starting in 1997 the participants in the academic year program have been asked to present a brief single concept lesson or idea. Summaries of the academic year lessons are at academic year notes.

Each plan is print-friendly and provides you with all the materials you need—photographs, reproductions, handouts, activities, suggested strategies, standards information, and additional online resources.
