Chemical Consequences of Burning Fossil Fuels
Future scientists are introduced to the chemical consequences of burning fossil fuels, learning that fossil fuel combustion leads to the formation of oxides of three nonmetals: carbon, nitrogen, and sulfur, all of which end up in the atmosphere and water. They explore how when each of these oxides are added to water, an acid forms, in addition to threatning wildlife in our streams, lakes, and rivers, acids react with building materials as carbonate containing rocks and some metals.
Differential Equations and Slope Fields
Students solve differential equations. For this differential equations lesson, students use their TI-89 calculator to explore slope fields and find solutions to a differential equation. They graph their solutions.
Questions of War and Peace: Using Case Studies to Teach the History of American Foreign Policy
Students read three case studies to focus on how the United States dealt with foreign policy issues. In groups, they read about the decision to drop the atomic bomb, the commitment of troops to Vietnam and wwhether to send troops to Somalia. They discuss the variables involved when dealing with foreign policy issues and write a paper to end the lesson.
Connecticut Wildlife: Biodiversity and Conservation Status of Our Vertebrate Populations
Young scholars explore the different types of vertebrates found in their area. For this environmental science lesson, students perform a case study on the Common Raven. They analyze data collected from research and create charts and graphs.
Reading the Landscape: Geology and Ecology in the Nineteenth Century American Landscape Paintings of Frederic E. Church
Young scholars use the methodology described by Prown (1982) to interpret paintings. They determine artistic, historical, and scientific content and develop an understanding of aspects of nineteenth century American culture. They study the paintings for their internal content and evidence.
Foundations of United States Government
Eleventh graders analyze the significant events in the founding of the United States. They read and analyze text, role-play famous Colonial Americans, write a biographical journal entry, and develop a thesis and write an essay in preparation for the Advanced Placement essay.
European Union Simulation: The European Council
Students participate in a simulation of the European Council in which they debate issues and adopt resolutions. After a lecture on the institutions of the European Union and the policymaking process, students choose a country to represent in the simulation. Students complete a profile on their country, create a resume and develop proposals for each of the debatable issues.
EU Simulation: The European Council
Discover how government and the European Union works with this interactive activity. Small groups form to represent a country and create a profile. The instructor presents an issue to discuss and potential politicians then develop proposals accordingly. Several handouts facilitate procedures and provide a format for activities. Teacher's lecture not included.
An Advanced Placement English Study of Lost Names; Scenes from a Korean Boyhood
Twelfth graders examine Korean history and culture. In this Asian history instructional activity, 12th graders discuss the effects of the Japanese occupation of Korea. They research literature from the time period and compose written responses based on the experience of having their whole cultural identities stripped away suddenly, as in the case of the Koreans. They create another essay response based on the events of the period.
