Exploring the Environment
This site features 25 online modules that put students in problem-based learning scenarios. In one module, students predict the impact of increased carbon dioxide on the wheat yield in Kansas. In another, they predict weather 48 hours in advance. Topics include coral reefs, climate change, the Everglades, mountain gorillas, rainforests, volcanoes, water quality, and ozone depletion.
Guidelines for Teaching Middle and High School Students to Read and Write Well
Most classroom teachers work hard planning lessons, choosing materials, teaching classes, working with individual students, and assessing student progress. Yet some schools and teachers seem to be more successful than others. What makes the difference? This booklet is designed for middle and high school teachers and administrators who wish to improve their English programs. Guidelines for Teaching Middle and High School Students to Read and Write Well draw upon a series of research reports and c

Time division duplex-wideband code division multiplex (TDD-WCDMA)
Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) has been used in cellular communications area, e.g., in the second generation mobile phones since early 1990’s. Wideband CDMA (WCDMA) is a newer and faster radio technology used in the third generation mobile phones. A Frequency Division Duplexing WCDMA (FDD-WCDMA) has already been employed. In the FDD mode WCDMA, the system uses different frequency bands for the Uplink and Downlink communications. In the Time Division Duplexing WCDMA (TDD-WCDMA) mode, the
The end and the beginning:a model for analyzing visual/verbal news broadcasts of protest coverage
This project brings together two areas of prior research: framing and visual rhetoric. Framing as it relates to news coverage of protests constitutes the core theoretical foundation. In using prior research by McLeod, Gitlin, and Lee, we see how news coverage can potentially bias an audience against protestors. However, this research focuses extensively on newspapers or transcripts of televised news. Consequently, by combining visual theories like semiotics, gestalt, and film theory into a visua
The first year impact of a professional learning community on low achieving 7th and 8th grade studen
The purpose of this study was to measure the impact on low achieving learners within the first year implementation of a professional learning community in a large suburban middle school located in the Midwest. Interventions through collaborative efforts were devised for low achieving learners and implemented. Grade trends for students earning below average and failing grades in all subject areas in the 7th and 8th grade were examined from each quarter of the previous four years and compared to g
Literature circles in the high school setting: an inquiry from comprehension to synthesis
The purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy of literature circles in a high school English classroom setting. Specifically, the purpose of this is to determine if literature circles improve reading comprehension and student involvement in reading and class discussions. As a sub-inquiry of this study, it is the purpose of this researcher to determine if the prescribed roles often used as guidelines for literature circles create perfunctory responses in small group discussions, and if i
The effects of higher-level questioning in a high school mathematics classroom
The purpose of this study was to address questioning and higher-level thinking in a low level high school mathematics class. Students in this study included twenty-two high school freshmen (experimental group) and twenty-three high school freshmen (control group) who were enrolled in Algebra 1. This study included a pretest that both groups took to determine their cognitive level or thinking prior to new information and modifications in teaching. The experimental group received modifications tha
The effects of explicit teaching of morphemic analysis on vocabulary learning and comprehension and
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

Description: Neolithic ware. Thinly potted light brick-red earthenware funerary jar with two loop handles and a flat base. The upper two thirds of the body are painted in dark brown with geometric designs in concentric horizontal bands. There is a narrow solid band around the rim of the jar, with two wider bands of cross-hatched pattern and another narrow solid band below. Around the widest part of the body is a wide band of a geometric pattern of alternating triangles and chevrons, belo
The effects of self-questioning on comprehension of expository text and development of content writi
The effects of instruction in self-questioning skills on comprehension of expository text and on ideas and content and organization traits in writing were explored. The expository reading and writing performance of 19 second grade students in an urban, low SES elementary school receiving instruction in a questioning strategy was compared with a stratified sampling of students from other classrooms in the same school. Pre and post assessments include a graphic organizer to record topic, main idea
Three-Dimensional Modeling, Animation and Rendering Using Blender 3D Software
The Blender 3D Design course is intended to offer students an introduction to the world of computer generated 3-D modeling and animation. As an introductory course, it provides a basic understanding of the skills and techniques employed by 3-D designers in a wide range of applications. This course updates and replaces Three-Dimensional Modeling, Animation and Rendering Using Blender 3D Software (2006), previously on Tufts OCW. In this course we will explore basic mesh modeling, applying textures
