Junior Primary Mathematics
Conditions of Use:
No Strings Attached
Rating

Junior Primary Mathematics was developed for in-service training of junior primary/foundation phase teachers in South Africa in the late 1990s. However, with the exception of Chapter Three, the topics and approaches will be useful for the training of junior primary mathematics teachers in other African countries. In order to adapt the book, Chapter Three could simply be replaced with a chapter covering the scope and expectations of the national curriculum in the particular country for which it is intended.A pdf versionof the resource is also available.

Foundation Phase Wrap-around Guide to accompany the ACEMaths materials (Six units) (Wits, Johannesburg, South Africa) Adapted by Manono Mdluli At Wits University in 2009 an ACE in Foundation Phase mathematics was offered along-side many other ACE programmes initiated as a result of the departmental roll-out of bursaries for teachers to improve their qualifications. Manono Mdluli had heard about the ACEMaths materials and chose to use them for one of her modules. But she wrote a full wrap-around guide for the tutors who would lecture the course so that all classes (which had to run parallel) would use the ACEMaths materials in a similar way. This guide was written to focus the pedagogical input at the Foundation Phase level.

Learners with Special Educational Needs (LSEN) ACE module material (Six units) (University of the Witwatersrand (Wits), Johannesburg, South Africa)Adapted by Judith Inglis The LSEN (Learners with Special Educational Needs) ACEMaths adaptation was produced by Judith Inglis of the University of the Witwatersrand. Judith used the full set of materials in the pilot study with a mixed group of teachers studying towards an ACE qualification. There were teachers in her group from the Foundation, Intermediate and Senior Phases as well as some FET teachers. None of the teachers in her group were maths specialists. While they worked with the ACEMaths materials Judith noticed that there were certain key design features that differed between all her other module material and she decided to adapt the module so that it would fit better with her full set of materials for the ACE LSEN. The adaptation is marked with icons to guide the reader through the text and has fewer activities. Some of the shorter activities were renamed as points to stop and think and a few (not many) were removed from the original ACEMaths text. Unit 1 is linked to the title.

Further Education and Training (FET) Maths Literacy ACE (Two units) (University of KwaZulu (UKZN) Natal, Pinetown, South Africa) Adapted by Sally Hobden. The ACEMaths materials were used at UKZN by lecturers involved in the presentation of a re-skilling ACE, aimed to enable teachers to qualify as maths literacy teachers. Sally Hobden prepared a module guide which incorporated much of ACEMaths Unit Four, in combination with extracts from units one, two and three. The adaptation was versioned to include maths examples and activities appropriate to the FET Maths Literacy teacher.

Thinking through Science: Teaching Next Generation Science Standards in the School Library
Conditions of Use:
Remix and Share

The learning objectives of this module are: 1. Students will articulate and demonstrate their understanding of Next Generation Science Standards and Three-dimensional Learning.2. Students will integrate Guided Inquiry and Authentic Learning methods with  their collborative teaching of NGSS with science teachers in the school library and the classroom.3. Students will articulate the benefits of Open Education Resources and apply criteria to evaluate and select resources that support Guided Inquiry, Authentic Learning, and NGSS Three Dimensional Learning.The Tasks in this module include:Task 1. Getting to Know Next Generation Science StandardsTask 2. Mapping Next Generation Science StandardsTask 3. Understanding Next Generation Science StandardsTask 4. Collaborating with a Science TeacherTask 5. Teaching Next Generation Science Standards Authentically Task 6. Resourcing Next Generation Science StandardsThe expected learning outcomes resulting from these learning objectives are:1] Enhanced science literacy for school librarians;2] Enhanced knowledge of Guided Inquiry and Authentic Learning for science teachers.As an introduction to the module we view a video that talks about a new vision for science. Next Generation Science standards not only set higher expectations, they aaply what we have learned about how children learn. Next Generation Science Standards are about "doing science." A hands-on approach creates excitement as learners experience science and how it impacts their lives. Click here to view Next Generations Science: A new Vision for k-12 Science Education. As you watch the video, consider the question, "How is the teaching and learning you observe different from how your K-12 science education? Take notes as you view the video. We will use these notes in Task 2 when we create concept maps that represent what we are learning about NGSS.
