IMPORTANT NOTES:

  1. To find a subject in the Table of Contents, simply do a search (CTRL+F), enter a key word for the topic you are seeking and keep hitting the "ENTER" key until you find that topic. To skip directly to a particular unit, click on the green buttons found below.

  2. Whereas it is useful to consult this page to see the content of each of the ULAT's lessons, be aware that it is not ideal for teachers or parents to structure their course on the basis of this Table of Contents. In other words, one lesson does not equal one day of study. The lessons below will vary in terms of how long it will take for students to master their content. A few of these lessons can be studied and mastered in a single day, but the vast majority will need to be dealt with for varying durations ranging from two to four class periods. For this reason, it is far preferable to make use of the "DAILY PLANS" section of this website (see the menu bar above) to organize the student's course of study since it provides guidance on how much material might reasonably be covered in a single day and since its daily lesson plans for teachers make suggestions regarding specific activities that should be performed in class.
