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.
Indirect Measurement and Trigonometry
Learn how to use the concept of similarity to measure distance
indirectly, using methods involving similar triangles, shadows, and
transits. Apply basic right-angle trigonometry to learn about the
relationships among steepness, angle of elevation, and
height-to-distance ratio. Use trigonometric ratios to solve problems
involving right triangles.
Investigate the difference between a count and a measure, and examine
essential ideas such as unit iteration, partitioning, and the
compensatory principle. Learn about the many uses of ratio in
measurement and how scale models help us understand relative sizes.
Investigate the constant of proportionality in isosceles right
triangles, and learn about precision and accuracy in measurement.
The Skills of Making Relationships
Lesson that requires students to think about the 3 key relationship skills and how they might put these skills into action.
A holistic approach to gross motor skills in a social context. Apart from the growth of confidence in the particular motor skills, ball games are an easy way of becoming more integrated into the peer group. Skills in this area also bring a growth in self-esteem and the opportunity to become involved on teams and in inter-school events.
Developing Analytical and Communication Skills in a Mock-Trial Course Based on the Famous Woburn, Ma
This Journal of Geoscience Education article discusses a mock trial in which undergraduates serve as expert witnesses and law students serve as their attorneys. The article identifies the trial as an effective vehicle for developing quantitative skills and enhancing written and oral communication skills. The course discussed is unabashedly about applying scientific principles to solve real-world problems. The entire course revolves around the analysis, interpretation, and presentation of scienti
Teaching The Difference Between Standard/Non-Standard Measurement with Feet by the Foot™
Feet by the Foot™ from Learning Resources help students transition from non-standard to standard measurement. Teacher demonstrates how to measure a table using the feet by foot method.
Geometry and Measurement Games
These games support student development of spatial sense and foster familiarity with the mathematical vocabulary of geometry.

Patient Communication Skills, 2009
The materials on this page represent a curriculum for teaching effective patient communication to dentistry students. These techniques could be useful for other healthcare providers, as well: medical students, nursing students, public health providers, and in-practice health care providers. There are two main types of resources: performance keys and videos. Performance Keys are text documents that articulate key patient interaction skills, and give examples of more and less effective techniques
Student-authored multimedia tutorials that cover a variety of study skills topics (e.g., time management, essay writing, note-taking, textbook reading)
Historical Thinking Matters
For too many Americans, the history class in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (remember the teacher’s plaintive question, “anyone, anyone?”) is all too familiar. Our approach is meant to challenge this false and familiar image of history: understanding and reconstructing the past requires ways of thinking, reading, and questioning much more engaging and challenging than mere memorization. Teaching in a way that differs from your own schooling experience is not necessarily easy to imagine, let a
