This page contains brief lessons about specific grammatical issues and focuses mostly on Egyptian colloquial Arabic, though it does also include some information about Modern Standard Arabic (MSA). Given their brevity, the lessons are of limited use.
This OER explores the issue of Banned Books during the Scientific Revolution. It includes links to high-quality primary sources from the Scientific Revolution. It is a product of the OU Academy of the Lynx, developed in conjunction with the Galileo's World Exhibition at the University of Oklahoma.
This lesson is a real-world scenario-based reading module for Reading Scientific and Technical Text, for readers at level 7. Through an interactive visual scenario, learners are introduced to ways to handle difficult text in a loan application form, and will be walked through the meaning and purpose of challenging terminology in it.
Students learn about material culture in this Moveable Museum lesson plan by taking a firsthand look at how culture influences the kinds of things we do. The 12-page PDF guide has educator materials including background information, teacher strategies, assessment guidelines, and detailed notes about the curriculum standards addressed. The Becoming a Cultural Researcher activity worksheet has a series of questions that prompts students to reflect on the material culture of daily activities, customs, or ceremonies. There is a kid-friendly glossary of related terms.
The purpose of this resource is to quantitatively evaluate the accuracy of a classification system. Students sort birds into three possible classes based on each bird's beak: carnivores, herbivores, and omnivores. Students compare their answers with a given set of validation data.

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.
Construct and measure the energy efficiency and solar heat gain of a cardboard model house. Use a light bulb heater to imitate a real furnace and a temperature sensor to monitor and regulate the internal temperature of the house. Use a bright bulb in a gooseneck lamp to model sunlight at different times of the year, and test the effectiveness of windows for passive solar heating.
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?
This is an lesson about spectrographs. Learners will build and decorate their own spectrographs using simple materials and holographic diffraction gratings. After building the spectrographs, they observe the spectra of different light sources. Requires advance preparation to spray-paint the inside of the containers black the day before construction. The activity is part of Project Spectra, a science and engineering program for middle-high school students, focusing on how light is used to explore the Solar System.
This is a site where educators can dialog on CA NGSS, share resources, and collaborate.
This resource provides access to the required materials from the Northern California Training Academy's Using the Child and Adolescent Needs and Strengths in the California Integrated Core Practice Model training. This one-day training gives participants an understanding of how California will use the Child and Adolescent Needs and Strengths (CANS) as a strategy to meet the Integrated Core Practice Model (ICPM) vision for creating behavioral objectives with families and teams.
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.
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.
