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.

Exploring the Power of Language with Six-Word Memoirs
Rating

OVERVIEW
What do the words we write really have to say about us? In this lesson, students examine the power of word choice as they write six-word memoirs of their lives. After manipulating the language of their memoir with an interactive tool, students reflect on synonymous words that they have explored and choose the best one to use to tell the story of their lives.

Force Diagram v.1.01.xlsm
Conditions of Use:
No Strings Attached
Rating

Force Diagram is an Excel-based program that is designed to help students learn how to construct force diagrams (free-body diagrams). It consists of ten conceptual exercises in which students are asked a series of open-ended but leading questions to help them identify if a force acts on the system specified in the exercise The student will also have to identify the type of force present and its agent and pick an arbitrary length of vector to represent the force and correctly identify the direction of the force. Additionally students will have to determine if each system is accelerating or not and if it is, the force diagram must be consistent with the direction of that acceleration, meaning that the student might have to adjust the lengths of one or more vectors. This portion of the program is reminiscent of FREEBODY by Physics Academic Software which is now defunct and is no longer compatible with current technology.

In addition, there are 79 quantitative drill-and-practice problems designed for independent mastery covering the Free Particle Model (equilibrium), Constant Force Particle Model (non-equilibrium), and Central Force Particle Model (uniform circular motion & universal gravitation). These mastery problems generate new numbers each time the student attempts the problem and also provides the answers.

Mystery Hangouts (or Skype) provide an engaging way for classrooms to learn about different regions of the US including climate, landforms, resources, economy, and people. Mystery Hangouts/Skype is a connected learning experience that allows student-centered learning, inquiry and deductive reasoning to be at the forefront of the experience. The concept is simple: Classrooms Hangouts or video calls each other and try to guess where the other classroom is located either in the United States or somewhere else in the world. On the day of the call, students use their resources in trying to figure where the other class is calling from via Google Hangout.
