This project addresses the lack in cutting edge science education in high schools in the United States, a gap which contributes to the decline of this nation's technological prowess. The existence of the gap itself is first demonstrated. Extensive background about textbook design paradigms is then discussed. This background is then applied to prototype lesson designs, intended to fill the gap between current available teaching materials and the most recent advances in science and technology.
