Ok…here’s the deal. The articulation project that I spoke of earlier this year is coming to fruition. Briefly, the five sending schools in our district will be sharing a Web log with us to create a learning object repository for Social Studies lessons and ideas. They would like to be able to sort these lessons by grade level, core content standards, and by school name. Obviously, the easiest way to do this would be to create multiple departments, but as noted earlier, that’s not yet an option in Manila. I suggested that we could create separate sites for, say, grade levels and then departmentalize by standards or schools. But that still doesn’t accomplish the ultimate goal. I’m also wondering about keyword searching with Manila. Or should we implement a Google search that might do the trick.

Without the multiple departments, I’m kinda stumped on how to accomplish this. Any and all suggestions welcomed.
