AEC Launches High School Electives for E-Learning Courseware Program


Curriculum and courseware developer American Education Corp. this week launched three new high school courses for its A+nyWhere Learning System. The elective courses are designed to supplement A+LS' core subject areas of language arts, math, science, and social studies.

The new course follow on the heels of electives launched last year by AEC, including anthropology, art appreciation, health, humanities
I & II, lifetime fitness, and sociology. The courses emphasize "essays, projects, journals, and constructed responses," according to AEC.
