Stereotypes of the French
This unit comprises four major lessons which are distinct yet cumulative. In the first lesson, the students will lay the groundwork for their examination of French stereotypes by generating those stereotypes themselves. They may draw, write, or find examples of what they think are "typical" French things. In the second lesson, they will be required to change perspective -- instead of being the examiners, they will be the examined culture. Students will look at various examples of stereotypes of
Performance through character development
Students will use the creative elements of character analysis and improvisation to develop a character for performance. While this unit's theme is the development of characters for performance, its overarching goal is to provide French immersion students with the opportunity to extend their discourse and further develop their speaking skills. This unit does not cover articulation or pronunciation exercises. For this reason these elements of performance are not being evaluated in the unit assessm
French Online is an interactive video-based course intended for use by university students and independent learners on the Internet. The first-semester course is divided into five thematic modules, with three lessons within each module. Each lesson is designed to take approximately one week to complete so working through the entire course will take the average learner approximately fifteen weeks. Each lesson opens with a video dramatization that sets the context for the lesson. Parts of the vide
"Urban Sociology in Theory and Practice, Spring 2009"
" This course is intended to introduce graduate students to a set of core writings in the field of urban sociology. Topics include the changing nature of community, social inequality, political power, socio-spatial change, technological change, and the relationship between the built environment and human behavior. We examine the key theoretical paradigms that have constituted the field since its founding, assess how and why they have changed over time, and discuss the implications of these parad

Worldwide Amphibian Declines
AmphibiaWeb is an online system enabling anyone with a Web browser to search and retrieve information relating to amphibian biology and conservation. This site was inspired by the global declines of amphibians, the study of which has been hindered by the lack of multidisplinary studies and a lack of coordination in monitoring, in field studies, and in lab studies. We hope AmphibiaWeb will encourage a shared vision for the study of global amphibian declines and the conservation of remaining amphi

A practical plan for implementing investigative laboratories
This resource outlines methods developed to promote investigative instead of demonstrative laboratory exercises as means of teaching concepts and introducing students to the scientific process. Students are guided through a variety of modular studies from which they can then formulate and test their own hypotheses.
A Guided Inquiry in a Computer-based Biology Lab
Computer technology is used by the research teams of 3-4 students to search for background information for the guided inquiry, organize this information into a concept map, complete an electronic template (the TLNB: Team Lab Notebook), and analyze data with Microsoft Excel. A computer projection system is used to present their findings to the other teams. This format can be adapted to do open and guided inquiry laboratories in biology for both the major and non-major student. In addition it can
A Field Study of the Ant Trail Phenomenon
In this exercise, students place food at various distances from an ant hill or nest. Ants are then observes as they find the bait and lead other ants to it.

Cold storage room mold growth
Cold storage rooms have perfect conditions for mold growth. Here's why: the lower temperature and limited air movement in these types of rooms present ideal conditions for condensation and moisture build-up, which in turn is ideal for mold growth. When the warm, heated air in the home hits the cool concrete walls of this area, it will reach its "dew point" and condense on the cold surface. The moisture from the condensation will not dry easily because there is limited ventilation or heat to allo
