The study of ancient Greece is vital to the study of all other periods of history, including modern history, in understanding how past enduring influences shape our present. This lesson may be part of a unit on Ancient Greece that covers the major areas of this ancient civilization: geography, architecture, democracy, government, philosophy, Olympics, daily life, Athens, and Sparta.

Listening is the least emphasized mode of communication. As such, it deserves a more thorough treatment. Upon scanning the OER landscape to determine existing opportunities to learn about listening, it was discovered most are devoted to the practical skills of listening. However, much can be learned by learning about the theories and research of listening.Therefore, this module is intended to serve as either a stand-alone learning module on listening or a more advanced module that can be added to other more practically-oriented modules. This module introduces students to academic study of listening and treats listening as a thriving sub-discipline (of interpersonal communications) that can be explored from an academic perspective.It provides sufficient references and resources that can be examined more thoroughly and perhaps even built out into an entire course or mini-course on listening.Upon successful completion of this module, you will be able to:DEFINE listening using theoretical developments. (Bloom 1)CLASSIFY effective listening practices by affective, behavioral, or cognitive processes. (Bloom 2)USE theoretically-based listening practices to improve communication. (Bloom 3)DEVISE a personal listening strategy based upon theory. (Bloom 4)This module has eight sections: Overview, Engage, Explore, Explain, Evaluate, Elaborate, Express, and Extend.
Experienced researchers “get” inquiry - that is, they have an ongoing internalized self-talk process that evaluates, draws connections, and creates next steps for the information-gathering process. But, they may not know that or how they do it.Along with the steps of inquiry, we need to help learners understand the metacognitive "self-talk" that guides their decisions which drive the inquiry. What researchers think is more important than what they do. So how can we help researchers recognize and utilize their metacognitive processes that guide their research? In order to prepare information-age learners, librarians need tools to teach the thinking that lies behind the inquiry.In this module, librarian candidates will learn to make the internalized reflective process overt. Candidates will create metacognitive awareness of the reflection process that accompanies inquiry. They will demonstrate understanding by creating concrete reflection scaffolding tool for emerging researchers.The skills and understandings gained from this module will help school librarians build instruction in support of CCSS.ELA-Literacy. CCRA.R.7, 9, 10.

The smallest unit of life is the cell. Cells are tiny factories that work with incredible precision. All living organisms consist of one or more cells. Regardless of their shape and form, which vary greatly, in each cell we can distinguish common organelles. The two most important cell categories are animal and plant cells. In this lesson, we will talk about the similarities and differences of the organelles found in animal and plant cells as well as their functions.
