7.3 Metabolic Reactions
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating

This unit on metabolic reactions in the human body starts out with students exploring a real case study of a middle-school girl named M’Kenna, who reported some alarming symptoms to her doctor. Her symptoms included an inability to concentrate, headaches, stomach issues when she eats, and a lack of energy for everyday activities and sports that she used to play regularly. She also reported noticeable weight loss over the past few months, in spite of consuming what appeared to be a healthy diet. Her case sparks questions and ideas for investigations around trying to figure out which pathways and processes in M’Kenna’s body might be functioning differently than a healthy system and why.

Students investigate data specific to M’Kenna’s case in the form of doctor’s notes, endoscopy images and reports, growth charts, and micrographs. They also draw from their results from laboratory experiments on the chemical changes involving the processing of food and from digital interactives to explore how food is transported, transformed, stored, and used across different body systems in all people. Through this work of figuring out what is causing M’Kenna’s symptoms, the class discovers what happens to the food we eat after it enters our bodies and how M’Kenna’s different symptoms are connected.

Representatives from 10 sovereign Native American nations in Michigan, five State of Michigan agencies, two universities, and three private organizations collaborated to develop two short curriculum units, one for 3rd grade and one for 5th grade. Each grade level unit includes five lesson plans and support materials for teachers using information from two archaeological sites provided by MDOT and cultural, historical, environmental, and indigenous knowledge provided and vetted by Michigan Native American tribal partners participating in the project. The lesson plans use the Inquiry Arc of the College, Career, and Civic Life (C3) Framework and focus on specific Michigan Social Studies Standards. The lesson plans also provide links to Michigan English Language Arts (ELA) literacy standards, as well as science and math applications.

Sustainability is not so much about ongoing grant funding but about baking this into the regular daily operations of an institution.” This segment tells a story of a highly successful Open Textbook project in British Columbia, Canada and how the project sustained momentum and funding. Stacey and Burgess, former and current Directors of Open Education at BCcampus first discuss the history of the Open Texbook Project and illustrate the key elements that influenced the initiative’s early success. One of the key elements they identify is their continuous data collection effort around student access and student affordability. They also discuss the recent growth in the adoption of OER and report that there have been 103 open textbooks in the BC collection. In discussing sustainability and capacity building across the system, they point out that sustainability is not so much about ongoing grant funding but about integrating this into the regular daily ...

Gender Equality in Public Education – The Civil Rights Litigation Schoolhouse
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC
Rating

Through most of U.S. history, women had limited access to educational programs and extracurricular activities. Most women were excluded from elite academic institutions, and those schools that accepted female applicants required them to have higher test scores and grades than their male counterparts. In the 1960s and 1970s, civil rights activists advocated for federal enforcement of equal opportunities for male and female students. In response, Congress enacted Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. This unit asks students to consider the scope and application of Title IX through the examination of statutory text, federal regulations, enforcement policies, and court decisions. Students are guided to confront questions about how the provisions of Title IX ensure nondiscrimination on the basis of gender, and to think about what sex equality means across different contexts.

This unit contains 5 lessons:
Lesson 1: Conceptualizing Equality and Non-Discrimination
Lesson 2: Analyzing Title IX and Athletics
Lesson 3: Applying Title IX Beyond Sports
Lesson 4: Applying Title IX
Lesson 5: Reshaping Title IX

Generic Student Growth Criteria Models
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating

One of the most widely-used criteria for student growth is "half way to a perfect score." Suppose a unit test is scored as a percentage, with 100% a perfect score. If a student scored 35% on a pre-test, then the "half way to perfect" growth criteria would require that student to score 67.5% on the post test to demonstrate "adequate growth." While popular and easy to implement, there are some end-case problems with this criteria. For example, a student who scores 94% on a pre-test would need to score 97% or higher on the post-test to show adequate growth. This might be a very difficult goal to reach. On the other end, a student receiving a 10% on a pre-test would only need to score 55% or higher on the post-test. While much more likely than the first example, this could result in students with "failing" post-test scores showing "adequate growth" for that unit. This Google Sheet allows educators to experiment with a few alternate parameter-based models (linear, quadratic, or brachistochrone) based upon either "mastery" (e.g., a perfect score) or some other value representing "proficiency" (e.g., 80%), as well as setting minimum adequate post-test scores.

Instruction in Functional Assessment

Instruction in Functional Assessment introduces learners to functional assessment (FA), which includes a variety of assessment approaches (indirect, observational, and experimental) for identifying the cause of an individual’s challenging behavior for the purpose of designing effective treatments. FA is mandated by federal law and is a recognized empirically based approach to treatment of individuals with challenging behaviors (e.g., disruptive, self-injurious, and aggressive behaviors). Instruction in FA is essential for students who will one day enter professions as educators, psychologists, social workers, counselors, or mental health professionals.The purpose of this textbook is to provide instruction in FA skills for pre-professionals in the fields of education and psychology. This supplemental resource provides the context, background, and knowledge to facilitate students’ acquisition of the methods, decision-making, and skills involved in conducting FA. Each chapter begins with focus questions designed to promote reflective thinking and ends with discussion questions. To promote application of FA in diverse situations and teach important lessons, case studies of individuals with challenging behaviors, interactive activities, and opportunities for practice are embedded in the chapters. Moreover, the text includes the ingredients to facilitate students’ role play and rehearsal of appropriate FA skills while working in cooperative groups and using performance-based training.

The National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. has an extensive section devoted to educational resources for both educators and students. One example is a pdf or online accessed text on the Dutch Golden Age. This is comprehensive in both history and art objects and is clearly written. There are more images than text, but the sections that are included are instructive. Other topics include the Italian Renaissance, Art since 1950, a module on Arts and Crafts, American Art since the colonial period, etc. Some material is geared toward younger learners, but much of it is appropriate for an introductory, or even next level, art history class. There is no licensing statement, although it is copyrighted. There are teacher resources available as well including assessments and images. Individual teaching packets come with 20 slides, 12 11 x 14 reproductions, a cd with jpgs, and a separate classroom activity guide.
