Teaching Social SkillsTo Kids With Autism And Aspergers
Moving piece about one mother's journey to treat her son with
Autism. She started a company, Watch Me Learn, to share her videos.
Very inspirational! As seen on the Glenn Beck Show on CNN. Her teaching videos are now used in schools and therapy centers. They reference the ABLLS-R assessment which is used to evaluate functioning levels of kids with autism. A parent can really make a difference. visit www.watchmelearn.com

How to Build a Simple Electric Motor
See the step-by-step process of building a simple cardboard motor - with a nail, wire, cardboard, and magnets. Run time 07:44.
Small Simple Motor (no narration)
This small motor uses only a carefully shaped wire, a single AAA battery and neodymium magnets. See this amazing motor work - in this very brief video. Learning via observation - is known as learning via 'modeling'. No audio. Run time 0:20.

The History of the Apple Tree
The history of the apple tree dates back thousands of years,
beginning in the Nile river valley and throughout Europe and the Middle East. In this clip learn about how apples made it to America with information and tips from a sustainable gardener.
In this clip farmer shows his compost pile. He gives information about what a compost pile is and how to make a simple low maintenance compost pile.
Language of Mathematics II (38): Exponents and Radicals (intro)
This instructor really does speak the 'language' of mathematics. In this segment, the instructor introduces exponents and radicals using a small whiteboard.
In this video, the instructor discusses Green's Theorem and uses it to compute the value of a line integral. There is a lot on his whiteboard, so you may want to view this in 'full screen.'
Vector Calculus - What is Green's Theorem?
This lecture, by Dr. Chris Tisdell, discusses Green's theorem in the plane. Green's theorem not only gives a relationship between double integrals and line integrals, but it also gives a relationship between "curl" and "circulation".
In addition, Gauss' divergence theorem in the plane is also discussed, which gives the relationship between divergence and flux.
Plenty of examples are presented.
Calculus-Curl, Part 1
The instructor in this video, Sal Khan, explores vector theory. Mr. Khan uses the Paint Program (with different colors) to illustrate his points. Sal Khan is the recipient of the 2009 Microsoft Tech Award in Education.
Battle of Fallen Timbers and the Treaty of Greenville
This video discusses some of the key facts of the Battle of Fallen Timbers and some of the concessions made in the treaty of Greenville. This is a good video review, but students need to have a list of names of those involved and a map of the battle site. This video moves rapidly, but adds insights what the treaty was about and the effect had on the Indians. A great debate starter for does the means justify the ends.
The Metric System
Learn about the relationships between units in the metric system and
how to represent quantities using different units. Estimate and measure
quantities of length, mass, and capacity, and solve measurement
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.
Classroom Case Studies, 3–5
Watch this program in the 10th session for grade 3–5 teachers. Explore how the concepts developed in this course can be applied through case studies of grade 3–5 teachers (former course participants who have adapted their new knowledge to their classrooms), as well as a set of typical measurement problems for grade 3–5 students.
Exploring Borderland-Unit 2
Chicana writer Gloria Anzaldúa tells us that the border is "una herida
abierta [an open wound] where the lifeblood of two worlds is merging to form a third country — a border culture." This program explores the literature of the Chicano borderlands and its beginnings in the
literature of Spanish colonization. Learning activities that go with this lesson can be found at: http://www.learner.org/amerpass/unit02/index.html
