Middle School Portal: Math and Science Pathways (MSP2)
This online activity offers students a chance to analyze data stated as percentages to draw conclusions about the similarity of five archeological sites. Students analyze the data by making a table of the differences for each pair of sites by subtracting the smaller percentage from the larger for each of five types of evidence. The activity is one of 80 mathematical challenges featured on the Figure This! web site, where real-world uses of mathematics are emphasized. The activity features a solu

World of Crickets
These four activities, use crickets to teach the scientific process to elementary and middle school students. Students will make observations and record data on the types of food that crickets like to eat. In another lab, students determine if crickets respond to light or dark. A “Crickthermometer” activity asks students to design an experiment to find out whether they can predict air temperature by counting the number of times a cricket chirps. In the last activity, “The Musical World of

AMA Apologizes To Blacks For Past Racial Inequality
Transplant surgeon Clive Callender has hurtful memories of being the only black doctor at medical meetings in the 1970s, met with stark silence when he pleaded for better access to transplant organs for blacks. So when the American Medical Association formally apologized Thursday for more than a century of policies that excluded blacks from a group long considered the voice of American doctors, it was belated, but still welcome.

This study investigated the effects of explicit teaching of morphemic analysis on vocabulary learning and comprehension and its transfer effects to novel words with sixth grade students. Because research states that vocabulary and the ability to decode unfamiliar words is vital for comprehension, an increase in vocabulary learning and comprehension was predicted. A sixth-grade reading class with low reading assessment results was specifically taught twelve affixes and roots chosen from a bank of

La Peste comme analogie

Cette leçon s’attache à l’usage de l’allégorie dans La Peste de Camus. A partir de l’étude de quelques mots et notions, comme « fléau » ou « pestiféré », on s’interroge sur la portée et les limites de l’analogie, sur les identifications de sa teneur (« occupation » vs « nazisme »), ainsi que sur les effets produits par son intégration dans l’histoire d’une guerre qui pour Camus « n’est pas finie ». Ces effets expliquent l’écart entre l’accueil fait a

La question paysanne des hautes terres d'Afrique de l'Est

Caractérisées par une altitude moyenne de 1000 m, de vastes plateaux et un climat équatorial modéré, les hautes terres d’Afrique de l’Est ont toujours été une région propice au développement de l’agriculture. Bien avant l’arrivée des premiers colons, ces terres étaient déjà occupées et organisées autour de la production agricole. A partir de 1850, les modèles de développement importés d’Europe se généralisent dans ces régions, puis se réorganisent à partir de
