                Curriculum Learning        
 

KANES  facilitate curriculum learning to encourage exam success.

Exam results improve drastically when there is understanding of the broad subject and desire for knowledge.   KANES  give more learning time to subjects of special curriculum interest.  

During early discussions, teachers specify the subjects of special interest and current levels of learning. The tour plan is then tailored to best cover those subjects by concentrating on including hands-on onsite experiences with supporting guest speakers, debriefs, and experiments where possible
