Painted Story Quilt

(View Complete Item Description)

Painted Story Quilt (art + social studies; art + literature) Quilt-making spans multiple centuries and many different cultures. It’s an art form that can teach basic math skills, record history, recycle cast-off materials and encourage cooperative efforts within a group...just to name a few ideas! Artist and author Faith Ringgold is renowned for her painted story quilts. She surrounds her narrative paintings with a quilted fabric border, creating visual art that tells a story in color, texture and pattern. In this lesson, students select a story to illustrate — a book they’ve read or a story of their own to share — then paint a scene on fabric pieces using watersoluble pastels and watercolor paint. The remaining fabric is painted with complimenting colors and patterns to make a border, and glued when dry to a piece of felt. Students are encouraged to share swatches with one another, just as fabrics have been created and shared in quiltmaking for centuries. As an option, students define key shapes with embroidery stitches and add beads. Grade Levels K-12 Note: instructions and materials based on a class of 25 students. Adjust as needed.

Next Gen Storyline: Why Do Some Things Get Colder (or Hotter) When They React?

(View Complete Item Description)

In this high school physical sciences unit, students investigate why some substances absorb heat when they react, while others release it. Students first solve the mystery of where the energy goes in endothermic reactions by examining salt dissolution and using magnets as models for bonds. They then expand their investigations to look into where the energy comes from in exothermic reactions. The model they continue to develop using magnets, helps them account for why breaking bonds absorbs energy from the surroundings and forming bonds releases energy back into the surroundings. The end of the unit naturally motivates a new question to pursue in future units, “Why are some types of particles more attracted to one another than others?" nextgenerationstoryline.org

Ensuring Rigor in Local assessment systems: A Self-Evaluation Protocol

(View Complete Item Description)

Strengthening Claims-based Interpretations and Uses of Local and Large-scale Science Assessment Scores (SCILLSS) This self-evaluation protocol provides a framework for educators at a school, school district, or local system level to use in considering how to best implement an assessment system. It is designed to focus on assessments that are state- or district-mandated, developed by an independent test vendor, and selected for use within a school throughout the school year. All tests that yield scores used for any of these purposes are part of a school’s or district’s assessment system and should be evaluated on a regular basis. This protocol is meant to support reviews for each assessment in a system and for a local assessment system, as a whole. Educators at a school or school district level can use and modify this protocol as needed to best suit their needs.
