From Cowboys to Clara Bow: A College Student's Motion Picture Autobiography
Fears about the impact of movies on youth led to the Payne Fund research project, which brought together nineteen social scientists and resulted in eleven published reports. One of the most fascinating of the studies was carried out by Herbert Blumer, a young sociologist who would later go on to a distinguished career in the field. For a volume that he called Movies and Conduct (1933), Blumer asked more than fifteen hundred college and high school students to write "autobiographies"of their expe
"Cast Down Your Bucket Where You Are": Booker T. Washington's Atlanta Compromise Speech
In 1895, Booker T. Washington gave what later came to be known as the Atlanta Compromise speech before the Cotton States and International Exposition in Atlanta. His address was one of the most important and influential speeches in American history, guiding African-American resistance to white discrimination and establishing Washington as one of the leading black spokesmen in America. Washington's speech stressed accommodation rather than resistance to the racist order under which Southern Afric
"Eight Hours a Day and Better Conditions": Andrew Pido Explains His Support for the 1919 Steel Strik
In the dramatic 1919 steel strike, 350,000 workers walked off their jobs and crippled the industry. The U.S. Senate Committee on Education and Labor set out to investigate the strike while it was still in progress. In his testimony before the committee, Slavic steelworker Andrew Pido described the discrimination faced by some immigrant workers and how that discrimination - along with long pay and poor conditions--encouraged them to unionize and strike.

Opportunity and Discrimination, A Dream of Gold
The lesson focuses on what it means to be a citizen of the United States and why the Chinese Exclusion Act is important when considering the concept of racism. It provides critical thinking activities directed at understanding how the Chinese used the legal system and the Constitution of the United States.

Spiders and monarchs and bees, oh my!
Exploring the world of insects and spiders can replace children's fear with fascination.
Setting the tone
Building a student-centered classroom culture starts on the first day of the school year.
Supplement to the Campi Phlegraei
Supplement to the Campi Phlegraei published in 1776. The supplement contains Sir William Hamilton's observations of the Mt. Vesuvius eruption in August 1779 as recorded in letters written to the Royal Society of London. The Supplement consists of 32 pages of text in English and French in parallel columns and five hand-colored plates of Mt. Vesuvius and lava, pumice or other emitted material.

I did however come across Darwin: Endless Forms Most Beautiful
This course serves as an introduction to the history, theory, and construction of basic structural systems with an introduction to energy issues in buildings. Emphasis is placed on developing an understanding of basic systematic and elemental behavior; principles of structural behavior and analysis of individual structural elements and strategies for load carrying. The subject introduces fundamental energy topics including thermodynamics, psychrometrics, and comfort, as they relate to building d
This course introduces the static behavior of structures and strength of materials. Topics covered include: reactions, truss analysis, stability of structures, stress and strain at a point, shear and bending moment diagrams, stresses in beams, Mohr's Circle, column buckling, and deflection of beams. Laboratory sessions are included where students are asked to solve structural problems by building simple models and testing them.
Introduction to energy fundamentals important to buildings. Conservation of energy. Air-water vapor mixtures. Thermal comfort. Heat pumps and refrigeration cycles, limiting thermodynamic performance. Heat transfer within buildings and major components. Several creative design projects are assigned. Fundamentals of Energy in Buildings, is an undergraduate class offered in the Department of Architecture, and jointly in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and the Department of Mec
Darwin: Endless Forms Most Beautiful is a new multimedia work surrounding the life and ideas of Charles Darwin, his theory of evolution, and the conflict between science and belief. The production, a collaboration between the departments of Theatre and Music, explores the notion of artificial intelligence and the mechanisms of evolution through experimental scenography featuring video, sound manipulation and visual projections. Directed by Keith Turnbull, the production will feature the origin
