Cooperative Learning & French: Beginning to Intermediate
French class has never been so engaging! Instead of listening to the teacher and doing independent paper and pencil practice, students interact with partners and teammates using Kagan structures. Through creative, structured activities, students discuss, ask questions, give directions, write, quiz, interview and coach. All of this interaction in French translates into more functional communication and more learning. Students don’t just learn about French. They acquire French through meaningful use. The fifteen chapters cover: community, clothes, weather, school, food, professions, daily activities, geography, time, date, music, movies, sports, verbs and adjectives. Fully engage your French students tout de suite!Learn More

Beyond the Egg Drop: Infusing Engineering Into High School PhysicsProblem: You’re eager to expand your physics curriculum and engage your students with engineering content but you don’t know how. Solution: Use the approach and lessons in Beyond the Egg Drop to infuse engineering into what you’re already teaching, without sacrificing time for teaching physics concepts. In addition to a thorough discussion on the rationale, justification, meaning, and implementation of integrating engineering into your science curriculum, this book provides 24 flexible, engineering-infused physics lessons that cover mechanics, optics, electricity, and thermodynamics. Lessons also include examples of student work; incorporate strategies for assessment, teaching, and student learning; and connect to A Framework for K–12 Science Education and the Next Generation Science Standards.
And like the venerable egg-drop experiment, these are classroom-tested lessons that are designed to truly engage your students. You can tell your students will tune in from the lesson titles—from “Bumper Cars” to “Zombie Apocalypse Flashlight.” Developed as part of Project Infuse, a National Science Foundation study, the lessons in Beyond the Egg Drop will make it easier to include engineering concepts and skills without having to restructure your existing physics curriculum.
Dr Birdley Teaches Science: Introducing Cells
Introducing Cells, a Dr Birdley Teaches Science book, explains critical concepts in science using words, images and characters. It is focused on standards-based learning objectives and makes science accessible to all learners. It exemplifies good science teaching. Following the outline provided, teachers help students warm up by assessing prior knowledge and developing vocabulary, learn about a new concept with the source cartoon, apply the new concepts in independent practice, and assess new learning with quizzes and tests that check for understanding of key ideas. Introducing Cells features biology topics including: why cells are important, smallest units of life, discovering cells, hierarchy of life, characteristics of life, the cell theory and one-celled organisms.Learn More
