Teaching English Language Learners Workshop 6
Changing classroom demographics call for a range or teaching strategies. In this session, literacy expert Robert Jiménez discusses strategies teachers can use to create a successful learning environment for all students, while supporting English language learners. Classroom examples illustrate the research.
Finding Missing Numbers in a Number Sentence
This lesson shows a student demonstrating how to find what numbers are missing in simple number sentences. The student uses a number line to explain the first example.
Solving Elementary Algebra Equations the Easy Method
This is a very quick and short video clip with no sound. It shows how to solve one basic algebra equation using an easy method step by step on the screen. More lesson can be found at http://elementaryalgebra.pages3d.net
Green's Theorem Proof (Part 2)
The instructor continues his discussion in Part 2 of the proof of Green's Theorem. The instructor uses computer software for demonstration. The explanation is clear and understandable.
The Art of Teaching the Arts: Fostering Genuine Communication
Arts teachers communicate with students, and students communicate with each other, in respectful ways that encourage communication of original ideas through the arts. In this session, participants meet a dance teacher whose students draw choreographic inspiration from poetry and sign language. A visual art teacher gives her commercial art class a fanciful assignment that enables them to communicate a concrete idea through several visual media. A theatre teacher encourages student interaction aro
Deals with language, development, and research methodology; provides a good demonstration of human sound recognition abilities.
Astronomy: Eliciting Student Ideas
Introduces constructivism by examining student beliefs on what causes the seasons and their explanations for the phases of the moon. This innovative workshop for teachers explores the reasons why teaching science is so difficult and offers practical advice to help you teach more effectively.

sciences. His trial is an important part of this video and is a good point of discussion for students when debating religion and science.
Atoms and Molecules
This program deals with teaching the very first steps of chemistry. It introduces the basic building blocks — the atoms — which, through their properties, periodicity and binding, form molecules. The program offers different ways to represent these basic concepts by creating useful models in the minds of new chemistry students. It follows the development of these con
Macro to Micro Structures
This program deals with the conceptualization of micro processes and environments. It involves teaching chemistry through macro phenomena, which can be observed, and micro processes, which occur on the molecular level, and can only be imagined. Conceptual change must occur in order for students to understand chemical phenomena. Teaching for conceptual change poses a grea
