  2. Integrating Differentiated Instruction and Understanding by Design

    Differentiated Instruction and Understanding by Design explains how to connect these two approaches and use their combined power to meet content standards and prepare for tests. While providing students with multiple learning pathways, use the backward design approach to develop curriculum units and lessons that can be differentiated in response to students’ different needs and levels. Combine drill and practice with differentiated performance tasks to inspire understanding of content and create a fair, criterion-referenced assessment approach that supports standards and differentiation.

  3. STEM Resources

    Science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) research refers to experiments conducted to address problems in those fields that can be tested using the scientific method. The scientific method is an inquiry process used to systematically study, investigate and to provide explanations for observed phenomenon in the natural world. This method is used by STEM professionals to answer questions they have about important world problems and usually includes carefully orchestrating a situation that allows them to observe, measure and test their ideas.

  4. Digital Daily Warm-Ups: Vocabulary Word Play Level 2 – Years 9–12

    Digital Daily Warm-Ups: Vocabulary Word Play Level 2 – Years 9–12 is designed to help teachers and their students review and practise vocabulary skills. The 180 quick activities – one for each day of the school year – consist of short exercises that reinforce definitions and demonstrate the art of using words creatively, teaching vocabulary words and their usage while giving students free reign to play with words and experiment with different forms of language. These daily activities may be used at the very beginning of class to get students into learning mode, near the end of class to make good educational use of that transitional time, in the middle of class to shift gears between lessons, or whenever else you have minutes that go unused.

  5. The Understanding by Design Guide to Creating High-Quality Units

    The Understanding by Design Guide to Creating High-Quality Units offers instructional modules on the basic concepts and elements of Understanding by Design (UbD), the "backward design" approach used by thousands of educators to create curriculum units and assessments that focus on developing students' understanding of important ideas. The eight modules are organised around the UbD Template Version 2.0 and feature components similar to what is typically provided in a UbD design workshop, including: Discussion and explanation of key ideas in the module; Guiding exercises, worksheets and design tips.

  6. Digital Daily Warm-Ups: English Series

    The Digital Daily Warm-Ups series is a wonderful way to turn extra classroom minutes into valuable learning time. The brief activities allow students to apply problem-solving skills that are relevant to their lives, such as calculating the probability of picking a purple jellybean out of a jar of jellybeans, making a pie graph to display the makeup of Earth's atmosphere, or using known information to estimate unknown information.The warm-ups include an assortment of problems requiring varying degrees of prior knowledge. They vary in level of difficulty and the amount of time it will take students to solve them. Make them into laminated cards for student use, or you may want to use the activities as a test on the problem-solving skills that are built and acquired over time.

  8. Developing Expert Teachers DVD

    In this two-part presentation, Robert Marzano provides a blueprint detailing how schools can develop teacher expertise. Addressing teachers directly as well as school leaders, he charts research-based techniques to organise strategies through lesson segments using a nine-segment framework. The segments are sorted into three categories: segments involving routine events; segments involving academic content; and segments involving issues that must be addressed as they occur. Using personal anecdotes, Marzano explains techniques for teachers and school leaders in a thoughtful and engaging presentation. This package includes a DVD with the video session and a CD with materials including the presenter's PowerPoint, an excerpt from the book On Excellence in Teaching and relevant web links.

  9. Teaching & Assessing 21st Century Skills: The Classroom Strategies Series

    As the 21st century unfolds, the pace of change in the world is accelerating. P–12 teachers and administrators must lead the cultural shift required to ensure their students can survive and thrive in the changing world. In Teaching & assessing 21st century skills the authors present a model of instruction and assessment based on a combination of cognitive skills (skills students will need to succeed academically) and conative skills (skills students will need to succeed interpersonally) necessary for the 21st century. The authors believe both cognitive and conative skills will be vital to the success of all citizens living and working in the highly varied and quickly changing knowledge economy of the 21st century.

  10. Defensible Differentiation: What Does It Take to Get It Right

    Differentiated instruction was designed to address the instructional needs of diverse students. However, simply claiming to practise differentiation will not meet those needs. In this keynote session Carol Ann Tomlinson calls on teachers to implement best practices regarding curriculum, assessment, instruction and learning environment – and to learn how these factors interrelate. She examines and invites educators to scrutinise their practices in applying the four foundational principles of effective differentiation. This package includes a 72-minute DVD with the video session and a CD with materials to support team or individual professional learning, an excerpt from the book On Excellence in Teaching and relevant web links.

  11. Innovation Through Technology: The Differentiators DVD

    In this keynote session (from the 13 October 2010 21st Century Learning Institute), Cheryl Lemke shows how to design tomorrow’s curricula by using research in sociology, learning and neuroscience as reinforcement for the key elements in 21st century learning. She explains how students can use high-tech tools to explore ideas, research questions, test hypotheses, compose thoughts and reach conclusions. These tools aid in collaboration and authenticity: two highly effective accelerators to learning. This package includes a 58-minute DVD with the video session and a CD-ROM with materials to support team or individual professional learning, including the presenter’s PowerPoint, an excerpt from the book 21st Century Learning and relevant web links.

  12. Getting Started with Lego Robotics

    Wouldn't it be nice if there was a golden ticket to STEM education? What if it could be applied as part of a lesson, as a class on its own or as an after-school club? Sound too good to be true? It's not. The golden ticket is robotics. It's hard to find a better way to teach STEM education. And the best part is it's hands on, multidisciplinary, collaborative, an authentic learning experience and engaging! Gura brings together the information you need and presents it in a manageable, organised way so that you learn what LEGO Robotics is, what student activities look like, how to begin, how to manage a class and much more.
