Teacher resources and professional development across the curriculum

Teacher professional development and classroom resources across the curriculum

## Using Artifacts

View an engraving and two photographs from U.S. history. As you view these resources, think about what you can identify and interpret through the images, and what kinds of questions you might generate if you were using these images to teach your students.

## Valuing Diversity in Learners

Study four types of learners (heritage language learners, those with learning disabilities, with different learning styles and in different levels)and the issues related to each. Read strategies of other teachers and describe strategies you might use.

## Variation in Estimates

A computer can perform random sampling and estimation faster than you can. Use the computer to help you estimate a penguin population from computer-selected random samples.

## The Village/State

Student groups have created ads for the new village/state they are creating to entice others to join them. Read one of the ads and work backwards through a series of prompts to determine the ad's audience, purpose, genre and theme.

## Virtual Particle Lab: Compressibility of Air

Explore the particle model of matter. Run the simulations and see if you can predict the results.

## Virtual Particle Lab: Dissolving

Explore what happens when one substance dissolves into another. Run the simulations and see if you can predict the results.

## Where Is the Player?

Examine how multiple light sources produce shadows of differing darkness and length. Move a player (with four light sources) around the field until your image matches the five other images on the page so you can identify where the player is on the field.

## Whooping Cranes

Track the migration of whooping cranes, once on the verge of extinction. Follow new crane chicks from their hatching to the day they complete their first fall migration at 5 to 6 months of age.

## Working with the Mean Absolute Deviation (MAD)

The concept of the arithmetic mean and deviation from the mean can be graphically representated as a line plot. You will create a line plot to represent specified allocations of coins.
