Reading, writing, vocabulary: The Pet detective
The student practices their reading and writing skills by describing a pet. At the end of this lesson he/she will be able to write a "missing pet poster" for a lost pet and will make use of the newly learned vocabulary.
Raw Life, New Hope: Decency, housing and everyday life in a postapartheid community
Raw Life New Hope is the story of one community's efforts to secure a decent life in post-apartheid South Africa For residents of The Park a squalid shantytown on the outskirts of Cape Town life was hard and they described their social world as raw Efforts to get on with the messy business of everyday life were often underut by cruel poverty. Despite inhospitable conditions they sought to create respectable lives. The opportunity of formal housing fired them with enthusiasm as they saw the possi
Oral Public Health and Community Service Program
This course addresses the following questions: What are Public Health, Civic Engagement, and Community Service, and how do they relate to general health and well-being? What are the fundamentals of epidemiology and biostatistics and what are their practical applications in general health and healthcare? Why are oral health and oral healthcare access major public health issues world-wide? How do the oral public health issues of water fluoridation, mercury disposal, HIV/AIDS, cancer, and tobacco u

"Electromagnetic Fields and Energy, Spring 2008"
"Published in 1989 by Prentice-Hall, this book is a useful resource for educators and self-learners alike. The text is aimed at those who have seen Maxwell's equations in integral and differential form and who have been exposed to some integral theorems and differential operators. A hypertext version of this textbook can be found here. An accompanying set of video demonstrations is available below. These video demonstrations convey electromagnetism concepts. The demonstrations are related to top
Resettlement to Redress: Socratic Seminar
"Resettlement to Redress" recounts the history and experience of Japanese Americans after they were released from the internment camps when World War II ended. This lesson requires students to read and understand a document that explains the reparations movement in detail, and it also requires them to ask questions about and to participate in a seminar on the issue.
Learn about Acacia Trees
Learn about Acacia Trees - Dave shows you how Acacia trees grow in Africa in this one-minute video.
Brassica plants produce seeds to reproduce. They need to be cross-pollinated in order to make seeds.
Feathery-like appendages are in constant motion. Small pinchers at the front of the head distinguish that the organism is a female. Black dots at the top of the head are the eyes.
Unique Species of Kentucky's Green River
This video from Kentucky's Last Great Places shows how the Green River has remained unusually clean and why it is home to several endangered aquatic species.
Students generally do not know the complexity that goes into building and programming a robotic arm. In actuality, creating such an arm comes from a design that involves mechanical, electrical, and computer science engineers. This activity allows students to control a robotic arm from both a machine's and a computer science engineer's perspective by letting them perform a simple task with a few entertaining instructions and constraints.
Reference Resources: Being a Good Detective
Students become familiar with a variety of reference resources when seeking information. These sources include atlases, almanacs, dictionaries, encyclopedias, thesauri, online search engines for the Internet, and online library card catalogs.
1929 Stock Market Crash
In this 2:33 video about what some have called, Black Thursday, the Roaring Twenties ends and a world-wide economic depression starts. After the stock market crashed, people started panicking and eventually President Hoover said things would go back to normal in 60 days, but by 60 days, the depression spread around the world. This is a good video to show the impact of this event and provide the students with insights into its cause.

Shaping Policy in Academia and Across the Nation
Issues of work/life balance and campus climate dominate this panel looking at policies to foster and retain girls and women in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics). As moderator
Marc Kastner notes, in spite of dramatic improvements at places like MIT, significant challenges remain.

Creative tensions between science & technology
Recent debate on the role and affordability of scientific research has too often been presented as a choice between 'blue skies science' and 'useful' engineering. This public lecture at the University of Bath by Professor Sir Richard Friend on 5 April 2011 argues that this is a highly mistaken outlook.
Protect That Pill
Students reinforce their knowledge of the different parts of the digestive system and explore the concept of simulation by developing a pill coating that can withstand the churning actions and acidic environment found in the stomach. Teams test the coating durability by using a clear soda to simulate stomach acid.
What Floats Your Boat?
Students use modeling clay, a material that is denser than water and thus ordinarily sinks in water, to discover the principle of buoyancy. They begin by designing and building boats out of clay that will float in water, and then refine their designs so that their boats will carry as great a load (metal washers) as possible. Building a clay boat to hold as much weight as possible is an engineering design problem. Next, they compare amount of water displaced by a lump of clay that sinks to the am
Hyde Park contempt trial, tape 4
Alan MacEachern (Boston Police Department) testifies in the criminal contempt trial of Michael Gaine (Hyde Park resident). MacEachern describes the events on the afternoon of August 22. MacEachern says that Bertha Brooks told him that Gaine was on Ross Field in violation of a restraining order. MacEachern says that Brooks reported that Gaine urinated in front of her home; that Brooks did not mention any obscene gestures made by Gaine. MacEachern says that he told Gaine to leave the field and tha
