Building a Movement: Civil Rights Part 1 - US History: from Civil War to Present
What does it mean to be an American? Far from being a fixed concept, over the past 150 years American identity has been constructed and reconstructed through the conflicts, interchanges, and negotiations between different ethnic, cultural, and religious groups. In this course, we will pay particular attention to two major transformations in American identity: the shift from a conception of citizenship grounded on race to one grounded on shared democratic ideals; and the development of the United

Fires release nutrients, reduce parasites, and open space for animals and smaller plants needing sunlight. Many pine trees need the intense heat from fires for seed release.
Bulbs and roots
Bulbs need light, sunlight, and nutrients in order to grow new plants. The roots of plants help the plant absorb water and nutrients from the soil.

He spills when he uses his right hand to drink. He has occasional drooling and slight difficulty rolling over in bed. His voice
Integration of Biology and Statistics Education (IBASE): Measurements of cells and organelles in bio
This lab was designed to promote the integration of a freshman biology lab and an Applied Statistics course. Students collect data sets to be used in statistics for examples and projects, and then present their findings in biology lab. Students learn how to determine the actual size of cells using calipers for chicken eggs, microscopes with ocular micrometers for onion root cells, microscopes with digital cameras/measuring software for red and white blood cells, and rulers for measurements of or
The Scientific Method:
An exercise to introduce scientific method, experimental design and basic statistical analysis.

Design a Net-Zero Energy Classroom
Students create a concept design of their very own net-zero energy classroom by pasting renewable energy and energy-efficiency items into and around a pretend classroom on a sheet of paper. They will learn how these items (such as solar panels, efficient lights, computers, energy meters, etc.) interact to create a learning environment that produces as much energy as it uses.
