Pt 1, Teaching Children Blended Consonant Sounds
This video contains great homeschooling or tutoring tips on blended consonant sounds! Teach kids to read in this video series on home schooling and tutoring young children. The information and steps are shared by an experienced teacher who walks you through the process.
Using a Function Machine to Create a Math Rule
The video appears dark because the instructor has a projector on in a darkened room. However, the information is demonstrated fairly well. The teacher shows how to use the function machine to find the unknown rule to a set of number pairs by investigating the pattern. (1:21)
Building on Useful Ideas
One of the strands of the Rutgers long-term study was to find out how
useful ideas spread through a community of learners and evolve over
time. Here, the focus is in on the teacher’s role in fostering
A grade 1-2 class, working in groups, develops their sense of larger
numbers by estimating and counting the number of seeds in pumpkins. NCTM standards: number sense and numeration, estimation, communication, reasoning.
Assessment in Math and Science - What'd I Get?: Scoring Tools
Workshop 2. What'd I Get?: Scoring Tools (90 min.)
'Well-designed performance tasks give teachers the information necessary to evaluate the depth of students' understanding — but how can teachers determine quality work? This workshop demonstrates how teachers can construct assessment tools for benchmarks of student understanding. The role of students in the construction of scoring tools and the process of assessment will be a primary focus. Content Guide: K. Michael Hibbard.'
Assessment in Math and Science-When I Was in School...
Workshop 8. When I Was in School...: Implementing Assessment Reform (90 min.)
'Changing old ways is not easy. Communication is the first step toward encouraging support for new assessment strategies. This workshop will focus on the importance of collaboration among teachers, administrators, and especially parents, when implementing assessment reform in a school or district. Content Guide: K. Michael Hibbard.'
Engaging Students in Active Learning Worshop 6
How do we engage students in active learning? In this session, the
teachers examine the elements of authentic instruction and cooperative learning to identify ways of engaging students in social studies content. They review the importance of questioning in relation to higher-order thinking and explore classroom strategies to stimulate
thinking and bring social studies concepts to life for their students.
Donna—Grade 5 Donna, a fifth-grade teacher, is incorporating the diverse backgrounds of her students into the science curriculum.

Will world population outrun food resources? The "Green Revolution" of the 20th century multiplied crop yields, in part through increasing inputs of pesticides and fertilizers. How can farmers reduce their use of agricultural chemicals and still produce enough food?
Workshop 3: Conceptual Thinking
In this workshop, the focus is on concept maps as tools for helping students learn. Joseph Novak, Professor of Biological Science, explains how students learn by assimilating new concepts into their already existing frameworks and takes a teacher step-by-step through the design and process of concept mapping. You will see concept maps being used in a variety of ways in m

The Arts in Every Classroom: Historical References in the Arts
Learner Team members and students examine costume designs for Parade, focusing on how the designs help convey character. They interpret works by painter René Magritte and choreographer Alwin Nikolais, discovering influences on the creators of Quidam. They also conduct research into the history of street performance and report their findings, in the role of art historian.
The Arts in Every Classroom: The Role of Assessment in Curriculum Design
As the Learner Teams continue working on their own units, they examine strategies for determining how well students meet unit objectives. By revisiting the lessons in the first four programs, they discover how to build formative and summative assessments into the units that they are developing.
Workshop 3: Learning to Share Perspectives
With Dr. Carne Barnett. Often teachers complain that they do not have ample opportunity to talk with colleagues about their students’ mathematical reasoning. In this workshop, you will learn about professional development based on the discussion of cases in mathematics teaching. Dr. Barnett describes this case approach, and a long-term teacher group is shown
Workshop 7: Children's Ways of Knowing
With Dr. Herbert Ginsburg. Children know a good deal of informal mathematics before they enter school. Clinical interviews help teachers understand what children know. In this session, you will see young children’s natural mathematical inclinations and watch as they construct their ideas. Observe Professor Ginsburg helping teachers of young children rethink t
Acceleration Lab Experiment
In this slow motion video for IPS Schools by Clayborn a ball is released on an inclined plane and accelerates due to the force of gravity. At the bottom of the first inclined plane to the beginning of the second inclined plane the ball stops its positive acceleration by nearly maintaining its horizontal speed. On the second ramp the ball accelerates backwards down the slope, or loses speed to a point where it momentarily comes to rest. Therefore this video demonstrates POSITIVE ACCELERATION, ZER
The Down Quark
This video presents a visual representation of the 'Down Quark'. The down quark is a fundamental particle, and can change from a down quark to an up quark. Find out what a down quark is in this informative video. (01:39)
