I participated in the first group and it was excellent!   I learned a lot from the community and the experience.   

I've been impressed with the Illustrative Math curriculum, which is OER.   As I mentioned earlier, they had asked for review of their high school materials and ... I have not heard anything about the part I commented on, which was materials for students needing extra support.   (My bringing that up was not well received.)   

Now, I know the Power In Numbers focuses on "advanced" math, as in at least Algebra, but I think some awesome adult ed OER could be created by modifying  their highly conceptual middle school materials.   A "curriculum" is a pretty hefty thing to attempt w/ 20 people in two months ... but it could be built on something that is already pretty strong...
