Do I have to do all the classroom work to participate in the competition?

As with the final competition, we highly encourage to use the TeachAboutUS classroom materials, but this is not a mandatory requirement for participation. Although we provide an interesting, interactive, and up-to-date selection of authentic materials, you can also choose to use only part of the materials or only participate in the competition. Again, you are very welcome to join the project and implement it into your classroom according to your needs and capacities.
