Blank Unpacking NCAS Template
Conditions of Use:
Remix and Share
Rating

The purpose of this template is to allow the user to unpack the National Core Arts Standards into task-specific or task-neutral learning targets that then can be used during instruction and/or within an assessment tool like a rubric.

The Unpacking Process:
1. Take a look at the performance standard* and pull out the nouns, or what students need to know.
2. Next pull out what students need to be able to do (the verbs).
3. Write learning targets or I can statements. When writing ask yourself, “What does this look like in student work?”

*Grade level Performance Standards or Indicators will need to be added to the template prior to the first step. This is a blank template.

Building Into The Lives Of The Kids At VBS
Conditions of Use:
No Strings Attached
Rating

To think that kids go away from VBS without being impacted is silly. You showed them God’s love, taught them God’s Word, and had a blast with them! Just because you don’t see them on the following Sunday doesn’t mean that you didn’t have an impact on their lives. It is too easy to step into the pitfall of an outcome based ministry. If you don’t see the kids come back, it was a failure. But again, do you know the rest of the story?

A dissertação intitulada “Educação Científica: Guia Didático para elaboração de projetos sustentáveis no ensino das Tecnologias da Informação e Comunicação”, objetiva desenvolver projetos mediante Feiras de Ciências, realizadas por estudantes da Educação Profissional da área das Tecnologias e da Informação e Comunicação, buscando soluções responsáveis frente às questões socioambientais. A questão de pesquisa a ser respondida neste trabalho é: Como fomentar a Educação Científica mediante Feiras de Ciências realizadas por estudantes da Educação Profissional da área das Tecnologias da Informação e Comunicação de modo que possibilite aos estudantes a elaboração de projetos que busquem soluções responsáveis socioambientalmente? Esta pesquisa de abordagem quali-quantitativa toma como inspiração o estudo exploratório, descritivo e escolhe como caminho metodológico a pesquisa de campo no Centro Estadual de Educação Profissional em Lauro de Freitas/Bahia, entre os anos de 2017 e 2018. A fim de alcançar o objetivo da pesquisa, optou-se pelo desenvolvimento de metodologia própria, baseada na ênfase do protagonismo estudantil, que buscou impulsionar estudantes à participação em eventos científicos, como as Feiras de Ciências e Tecnologias. Os sujeitos envolvidos no processo da pesquisa foram os estudantes do Ensino Médio Profissional do Centro Estadual de Educação Profissional em Tecnologia da Informação e Comunicação – CEEP-TIC, localizado no município de Lauro de Freitas - Bahia. Apresentamos como produto educacional da pesquisa um Guia Didático para desenvolvimento de projetos sustentáveis no ensino das Tecnologias da Informação e Comunicação e a demonstração dos resultados dos projetos apresentados nas Feiras de Ciências Escolares do referido Centro. A partir das análises das informações coletadas em campo, a pesquisa apontou que instigar à Educação Científica na Educação Profissional é uma ferramenta essencial na promoção da educação voltada para as resoluções de problemas práticos do dia a dia e, na formação do senso crítico dos estudantes, os ajudando a ir além do senso comum, em busca de soluções. A pesquisa aponta que as Feiras de Ciências Escolares são compreendidas como práticas pedagógicas formativas para promover a Educação Científica que substitui a ênfase na capacidade de fazer, comum na formação do estudante da escola técnica-profissionalizante, para a capacidade de prever eventos e solucionar problemas. Neste sentido, perspectivamos que este guia sirva de referência para que professores, estudantes e outras pessoas interessadas possam desenvolver atividades de iniciação científica ou de pesquisas, ou projetos socioambientais em suas escolas.

Calculus in Context
Conditions of Use:
No Strings Attached
Rating

We believe that calculus can be for students what it was for Euler and the Bernoullis: a language and a tool for exploring the whole fabric of science. We also believe that much of the mathematical depth and vitality of calculus lies in connections to other sciences. The mathematical questions that arise are compelling in part because the answers matter to other disciplines. We began our work with a "clean slate," not by asking what parts of the traditional course to include or discard. Our starting points are thus our summary of what calculus is really about. Our curricular goals are what we aim to convey about the subject in the course. Our functional goals describe the attitudes and behaviors we hope our students will adopt in using calculus to approach scientific and mathematical questions.
