Creating Effective Citizens
This program explores how social studies teachers in any grade level can help their students develop the democratic values that will make them effective and responsible citizens. Teachers are shown helping students see their community in a broader sense and inspiring them to think about ways they can make a difference. The classroom lessons emphasize how civic processes work, how to discuss issues from multiple perspectives, and how teachers can inspire their students to take social action.
Second-graders create and discuss a bar graph based on the number of marshmallows they estimate each person in their class would eat on a camping trip. After discussing their results, students determine how many bags of marshmallows to take. NCTM standards: concepts of whole number operations, statistics and probability, reasoning, problem solving.
Choose a Method
A fourth-grade class shares their reasoning in evaluating the
appropriateness of different computational methods (base-ten blocks,
calculators, mental math, or paper and pencil) to specific problems.
NCTM standards: whole number computation, estimation, communication,
Creating quilt squares from construction paper, first graders develop
spatial sense as they discuss and handle different shapes. They connect geometric ideas to number ideas as they cut squares into congruent triangles. NCTM standards: geometry and spacial sense, patterns and relationships, communication, connections.
Assessment in Math and Science-I Didn't Know This Was an English Class!
Workshop 4. I Didn't Know This Was an English Class!; Connections Across the Disciplines (90 min.)
'One measure of students' depth of understanding is the connections they can make across disciplines. This workshop explores how teachers can encourage these connections by designing performance tasks that build on other disciplines. Content Guide: Monica Neagoy.'
How to Teach Division With Whole Numbers
Teaching division with whole numbers is an easy concept if one is familiar with multiplication tables, as the tables work opposite of each other. View examples of how multiplication and division work together from this veteran math instructor.
Line Integral, Example 2 (Part 1)
This is a discussion of a line integral over a closed path (part 1). The instructor uses computer software for demonstration. The screen is dark with small writing, so the viewer may want to open the screen to 'full screen'. The instructor is clear and easy to understand.
Workshop 6: Energy and Ecosystems
In this program, participants are shown that light energy that has been absorbed by plants during photosynthesis and transformed into chemical energy can now be transferred to other organisms. Energy is contained within food molecules such as sugar and starch made by plants, therefore when animals eat plants, or eat other animals, the energy is passed to them. However, the transfer of energy between plants and animals is inefficient and there are energy losses.
Derek Sivers: How to start a movement
With help from some surprising footage, Derek Sivers explains how movements really get started. (Hint: it takes two.)
Meredith Viera Discusses the Word Hibernate
Meredith Viera discusses the definition of hiberate. Ms. Viera is joined at the end of this brief video by examples of hibernating animals (represented by puppets).
Gymnastics & Tumbling : How to Do a Round Off
In gymnastics, a person should know how to do a cartwheel before attempting to do a round off. Find out where to place the hands when doing a round off from a lunge. (2:05)
Stories of the New World intrigued French rulers. Although they wanted a share of the American gold and silver, they were more interested in finding a westward route to Asia. In 1524, the French king commissioned Italian explorer Giovanni da Verrazano to search for a passageway through the New World. Verrazano spotted the coast of South Carolina and sailed north as far as Nova Scotia, but found no such water route or valuable treasure.
A decade later, French navigator Jacque Cartier led t
1849 California Gold Rush
A social studies class tries their hand at re-enacting what the gold miners did in the 1849 gold rush. (Amateur video)
The Great Depression Pt.3
It happened in the 30's. Interview with people who lived through the Depression and discussion of what happened and why.

Digital Story: Basic Principles of the United States Constitution
This is a 3:31 long video made by students. It offers a basic review of the Constitution, but doesn't offer enough examples to be of use to those unfamiliar with the subject. Best used as a quick overview or introduction. A handout with the information would be of value for students who don't understand such concepts as federalism.
7 Ways Games Reward the Brain
We're bringing gameplay into more aspects of our lives, spending countless hours -- and real money -- exploring virtual worlds for imaginary treasures. Why? As Tom Chatfield shows, games are perfectly tuned to dole out rewards that engage the brain and keep us questing for more. Tom Chatfield thinks about games -- what we want from them, what we get from them, and how we might use our hard-wired desire for a gamer's reward to change the way we learn. (16:30)
Finding the Surface Area of a Cube The instructor uses an electronic chalkboard to demonstrate how to find the surface area of a cube. One example is modeled using astep by step approach to walk the learner through the computational process. A definition of the formula is given explaining what s stands for in this formula.

How to Measure Circumference
The two minute video is about circumference. This video explains that one way to seperate circles is by their circumference, different size circles have differecnt size circumference. Circumference is the distance around a circle. The ratio of the circumference of a diameter is pi= c/d. The video moves slowly and students should be able to follow it after the terms have been explained and practice.
