Conversations With Student Writers
The program demonstrates how teachers incorporate conferences with students into their writing instruction. Viewers will see how teachers structure conferences, choose a teaching focus for the conference, and keep records of their interactions. The emphasis is on practical strategies and on the fundamental benefit of responding personally to student writing.
Teaching Persuasive Writing
In this session, participants visit two middle-level classrooms to see how teachers can help young writers develop effective and authentic persuasive pieces based on their own experiences and interests - for example, using cell phones in schools or altering their homework schedule. (58:10)
Making Writing Meaningful
When teachers introduce subjects that matter to middle school students or allow them more freedom to choose and develop topics, the task of writing gains new meaning and purpose. In this session, participants examine how five middle-level teachers help their students connect to writing and understand its capacity to transform their own lives and the world around them. (58:25)
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.
Rock Cycle Rap
This song spells out and describes the three types of rocks (metamorphic, sedimentary, igneous) in a brief, entertaining rap. The song only touches on the types of rocks. The video might be used to introduce a unit on the rock cycle or to inspire students to create their own music video about the rock cycle. Run time 01:50.
Geology - Introduction to the Rock Cycle
This is a brief overview of sedimentary rocks and the natural cycle that leads to their formation. (01:14)
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.
How to Star Gaze With Your Children
How to Star Gaze With Your Children - In this episode, Daddy Troy demonstrates some software that will encourage your child to learn about space. Specifically he looks at Google Earth, Google Moon, Google Mars, satellite tracking software from NASA, and some astronomy and satellite tracking iPhone apps called GoSatWatch, GoSkyWatch and Star Walk.

Ralph Baer, inventor of the video game
In 1967 the first video game on a television set was played by these two men, inventor Ralph Baer and his assistant Bill Harrison. This video was taken two years later, with their famous Ping-Pong game on the "brown box" console, which later became the basis of Atari's Pong. In this 2:44 minute video, Baer is explaining the operations of this new invention.
Louis Pasteur and the History of Pasteurization
Pasteurization is the process of heating liquids for the purpose of destroying bacteria, protozoa, molds, and yeasts. This process was named after its creator, French chemist and microbiologist Louis Pasteur. The video discusses the history behind Pasteur's breakthrough (beginning with the pasteurization of beer and wine in France that eventually lead to the pasteurization of milk) while also explaining the process of pasteurization in easy to understand terms. Video runs 2:51 in length.
Galileo Galilei - A Biography
Galileo Galilei was born on February, 15, 1564 in the old Italian town of Piza and his biography is explained in this seven minute video. Uses good quotes and images to help explain his decisions. He is the father of modern physics and, in fact, of all modern natural
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
Energetics and Dynamics
This program emphasizes the importance of learning about energetics and dynamics in order to improve students’ understanding of basic principles of chemistry. The complexity of teaching concepts such as the collisions theory, reaction kinetics, and electronic energy levels is introduced using a variety of teaching strategies. These concepts are related to everyday phenomena thro
Theory and Practice in Chemical Systems
This program shows how a theoretical understanding of the driving force for chemical systems can lead to further development of new technologies and to the discovery of new phenomena, in practice. In teaching, this is done through the creation of a close relationship between the science and mathematics of chemical processes, through problem-solving activities. These acti
This program deals with basic concepts that are required for the understanding of chemical design. The idea is brought about by experiences from everyday life, such as the stoichiometry of baking, the ingredients of soft drinks, the components of drugs, and the chromatography of markers. The tools of the chemical designer — the chemist — are found in the laboratory,
