How to build a stronger sense of community in the classroom - 1 views

  •  
    Today's classrooms are more diverse than ever before. As a result, teachers find themselves searching for ways to meet the needs of each student. Add to it the pressures of academic achievement goals mandated by NCLB and many may feel ill-equipped to meet the challenges of diversity in the classroom. Planning perfect lessons with exciting activities looks great on paper, but will it help your students reach their potential? Probably not. If there is anything I learned during my time as a public school teacher is this: The height of student achievement is directly correlated with the strength of the classroom community. By building  community in the classroom, you build an environment where students feel safe to learn, grow and be themselves.

The Best Sites To Introduce Environmental Issues Into The Classroom | Larry Ferlazzo's ... - 0 views

  •  
    "I was pretty careful about how I titled this latest "The Best…" list. These sites are good to "introduce" environmental issues in the classroom, but generally don't provide information on systemic, political, and corporate issues related to environmental damage."

ElectroCity - 0 views

  •  
    How is energy generated? How much does it cost? How does it affect the environment? These are extremely important topics today, and are no longer just the domain of engineers and industry experts. ElectroCity was developed to increase public awareness - particularly among students - of the basic "common knowledge" of these topics. That is, the general terms and concepts of the industry and the dilemmas that go along with them. Our goal is not to provide students with a sophisticated understanding of the controversies in the various energy debates. Rather, our goal is to spark an interest and lay an unbiased foundation for later learning.
