Papers of George Washington
In this section of our site, we have endeavored to provide teachers and students with useful primary and secondary materials to help foster understanding of early America through the life of George Washington. These resources can work on several levels. First, the twelve slides themselves provide a general chronology of the life of George Washington as well as secondary information on the larger historical context. Ideally, this background material reiterates your own class text readings and dis
Algebra.help - Simplifying expressions/equations with exponents

Learning simulation discussion
Kevin Stirling, Lecturer in Simulation at the Clinical Skills Centre, University of Dundee, being interviewed by Paul Maharg. This interview took place at the UKCLE OER/simulation learning event at the University of Edinburgh, 19/05/10.
Slave History of Charleston
The old slave quarters of the Aiken family reveal many stories of slave life and culture in Charleston in the 19th century. Ironworking and the ability to cultivate rice are two of the many technical skills the slaves brought to the United States, contributing to Charleston's economic and rich cultural development.

Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka: “...you see everything as done good is done by white peopl
From 1991 to 1996 the Kansas Historical Society participated in a grant project that funded eighty oral interviews with people involved in or affected by U.S. school desegregation cases that culminated in the U. S. Supreme Court case, Brown versus Board of Education Topeka. This podcast features excerpts from an interview with Christina Jackson, who grew up in Topeka, Kansas and raised her children there. She speaks candidly of her experiences going to a segregated school and her children's adj
Believe it or not! Reporting on amazing animals
A visual and oral presentation of an "animal report" can engage students' interest and develop their artistic and visual literacy skills.
Alternative discussion formats: a public relations campaign
By creating a PR campaign for a historical or literary figure, students can practice a wide range of thinking skills.
Computer Skills Assessment Test
The CSAT is used mainly for employers who wish to evaluate a person's knowledge on computer systems but students and individuals can use this as a self-assessment on computer skills. It contains questions on the various components of the computer, popular and practical Microsoft office applications like word, powerpoint, and excel. This exam also includes a section on using the internet and email. Co-author of this exam is Lee Steven Zantua.
Grade 4 Math Revision Test I
This module revises a variety of mathematical skills: basic operations, weights, measures and money are all revised. Some emphasis is placed on applied maths, and especially on introductory fractions.
Sixty-one questions taken from the areas of 'language and reasoning', 'mathematical skills', 'space and logic', 'general knowledge'.
Reading, grammar, culture: Basel, city on the Rhine
You practice your reading skills and learn about the city Basel. You practice the declension of articles and adjectives.
Listening, vocabulary: What are you going to do?

Inside the SPHE Classroom
Outlines the desired relationship with students in the SPHE classroom, group leadership skills for teachers, setting ground rules and forming students into groups.
Lesson plan involving short experiential exercises during which the students, working in pairs, learn the skills involved in listening.
Structuring and merging Distributed Content
A flexible approach for structuring and merging distributed learning object is presented. At the basis of this approach there is a formal representation of a learning object, called attribute structure. Attribute structures are labeled directed graphs representing structured information on the learning objects. When two or more learning objects are merged, the corresponding attribute structures are unified, and the unified structure is attached to the resulting learning object.
Worksheet with keywords and a short form to fill out once a favorite film has been selected. Excellent for developing oral discussion skills in the area of cinema.
Derivation of Knowledge Structures for Distributed Learning Objects
Knowledge space theory (Doignon & Falmagne, 1985; Albert & Lukas, 1999; Doignon & Falmagne, 1999) offers a rigorous and efficient formal framework for the construction, validation, and application of e-assessment and e-learning adaptive systems. This theory is at the basis of some existing e-learning and e-assessment adaptive systems in the U.S. and in Europe. Such systems are based on a fixed and local domain of knowledge, where fixed means that the domain does not change in time and local ref
The proving process within a dynamic geometry environment
Proof and proving have been objects of investigation from the point of view of mathematics and mathematics education for the past few years. Historical and epistemological studies show that proof is a crucial activity within mathematical practice. Didactical studies show that students encounter many difficulties when approaching proving in the classroom. Research at a cognitive level has developed frameworks interpreting students' difficulties. Studies concerned with the use of new technologies
