Unity and Diversity

Analyze teaching strategies used in four classroom examples. Describe how the teachers incorporated themes of unity and diversity into their lessons and compare your answers to the sample answers provided.

Using Artifacts

View an engraving and two photographs from U.S. history. As you view these resources, think about what you can identify and interpret through the images, and what kinds of questions you might generate if you were using these images to teach your students.

Using Hexominos to Manufacture Boxes

Which hexomino net wastes the least amount of paper and yields the most boxes per sheet? Comment on how concepts such as area, spatial visualization and relationships among geometric shapes are all involved in solving this problem.

Using Your Day To Inspire Writing

Scroll through the events from a single day of a writer/teacher. Roll over each event to see how it sparked ideas for writing topics and genre(s).

Valentines Cards

How many valentines are exchanged if each of your 24 students gives a valentine to everyone else in the class? Think about how you would solve a similar problem for a school of 1,000 students.

Valuing Diversity in Learners

Study four types of learners (heritage language learners, those with learning disabilities, with different learning styles and in different levels)and the issues related to each. Read strategies of other teachers and describe strategies you might use.

The Village/State

Student groups have created ads for the new village/state they are creating to entice others to join them. Read one of the ads and work backwards through a series of prompts to determine the ad's audience, purpose, genre and theme.

What Do Revision Choices Reveal?

Read two pieces of authentic student writing before and after revision. Notice the highlighted areas in each draft and identify how they reflect specific revision strategies the students have learned and applied.

What's Your Definition of Arts Integration?

Start this workshop by defining what arts integration means to you. Then continue on as you explore different approaches to arts integration to expand and deepen your understanding.

Word Tiers

Identify three tiers of vocabulary words that present new vocabulary for your students, and then categorize words by tier in order to focus your teaching.

World History Traveler

Learn about patterns and processes that make up world history. Follow thematic pathways to explore a particular topic, or use bridges to make connections across time and space.

A Writers' Notebook

Virtually participate in a workshop of four high school teachers led by a renowned author. There are eight topics including “Hiding and Revealing with Language,” “Using Sensory Description,” and “Writing a Picture of Me”.
