The arts reflect the society that creates them. Nowhere is this truer than in the case of the ancient Greeks. Through their temples, sculpture, and pottery, the Greeks incorporated a fundamental principle of their culture: arete. To the Greeks, arete meant excellence and reaching one's full potential.

Welcome to the mystery and wonder that is ancient China. In the subsequent readings, you will learn that Chinese culture developed differently from any other ancient civilization. Chinese history is a lesson in paradoxes. Their past is full of natural disasters and wars; yet some of the most beautiful art, literature, and architecture have been created and preserved through the 13 dynastic periods, spanning 4,000 years into the 20th century. These trends are reflected by three of the most influential dynasties of China: the Shang, Han, and Tang.
Overview: In this project students develop a computer game in Scratch using their understanding of loops, conditional statements, variables and events that tells the story of a hunter or gatherer from an indigenous culture of their choice. Developed by Allen Distinguished Educators, Nick Nohner and Chris Bartlo, this project integrates computer science, design, and social studies concepts and meets learning standards in computer science.
Simple Circuit: To complete a simple circuit, you must create a loop for the electrons to flow. Since all inputs on Makey Makey complete a circuit, you just need to figure out how to wire up an LED and build a simple switch. If you build a successful current, your light will shine on any key press! In this lab, you will create your own simple circuit with Makey Makey, building simple switches, and once you've mastered that, you'll move on to parallel circuits.
Good questions are the heart of an interview. Prepare for an interview by creating an interview guide and practice how the interview might flow. Learners should think of this as a guide, and not a script. The goal is to create a scaffolding to have an authentic conversation, not check off questions. Novices will likely stick to the script, while more advanced learners will figure out their own style.
