Lauren Porosoff, a junior high school teacher in New York, blends the ACT model into her curriculum.  I always admire people who do something pioneering with the ACT work. She and I talk about how she does it, and she provides resources for weaving ACT into educational scenarios.  Check out her book, Curriculum at Your Core: Meaningful Teaching in the Age of Standards, and her website, Teaching Tolerance.  If you'd like to learn more about her approach, she wrote a neat article, Systems vs. Heaps: Aligning Professional Development with School Values.  She's also giving a workshop on Friday, May 1, 2015 about giving English teachers ideas for designing a values-based curriculum.  It's called The Story Your English Course Tells and you can register for it here.
