You Kiss by the Book': Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet
Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet presents "star-cross'd" lovers whose plight has become the subject of many of today's novels, plays, films, and television dramas. Explore with your students the techniques that Shakespeare uses to capture the magic of the couple's first meeting and to make that meeting so memorable. This lesson plan complements the study of plot and characterization in Romeo and Juliet in its focus on lyrical form and convention that heighten the impact of the action on the stage.

Winter Math Activities
There are many possibilities for winter math data collection activities. Look for opportunities to have students create tally charts, clothespin graphs, Venn diagrams, bar and line graphs to organize data and analyze the results of the data collection. Build on students' natural fascination with penguins by including these math pattern activities. The Koch Snowflake is an example of an iterative drawing as each successive stage begins with the previous stage. The Koch snowflake begins with an eq

Conceptual Physics
This is a nonmathematical physics textbook, designed so that it can be used either for a semester-length course of the type popularized by Hewitt, or for a shorter course of 8 or 10 weeks. This book is essentially a rewritten version of Discover Physics. The rewrite is intended to do two things: (1) make the book less closely tied to a particular method of teaching, and (2) make it possible to use the book in shorter courses (such as Fullerton College's Physical Science 103A) with the omission o

Elementary GLOBE: Earth System Play
The class will brainstorm, write, create, and produce a play in which they represent how all the Earth systems are interconnected. This play can be based on the Elementary GLOBE book "All About Earth: Our World on Stage" or on other student-generated topics representing interconnections of the Earth systems. The purpose of the play is to serve as a performance assessment providing students with the opportunity to display what they have learned about the Earth as a system in a creative manner. Th

Elementary GLOBE: We're All Connected
A learning activity for the "All About Earth: Our World on Stage" book in the Elementary GLOBE series. One of the "big ideas" in Earth system science is the notion of interaction among parts of the Earth system. In the Elementary GLOBE book All About Earth: Our World on Stage, the children in Ms. Patel's class discuss instances of how the four major spheres of Earth's system interact. They symbolize these interactions by using large arrows to link the system components: air, water, soil, living
