e-Mission: Operation Montserrat, Version 5.1

The curriculum as it is presented here has undergone an extensive development process, beginning in 1998. We are committed to producing the best program possible, and strive to listen to the needs of those who use these materials. This process has been a collaborative one, always beginning with the students and teachers. In addition, we have had the help of subject matter experts, instructional designers, educational researchers, writers, graphic artists and programmers.
