Teacher Education Lesson Planning. Microsoft Teacher Resources. Teaching Tolerance: Classroom Resources. This lesson is part of The Little Rock Battle for School Integration series, which introduces students to the actors and events central to the 1957 Little Rock Central High School desegregation crisis.

Teaching Tolerance: Classroom Resources

In this lesson, students learn about the state of Central High School and integration in Little Rock 55 years after the crisis. In 1957, the conflict in Little Rock changed the nation, but in the process, the small, Southern city was also transformed. The events that made Little Rock famous exposed the city’s divided views on racial integration. Although these divisions persist, the battle lines are not as black and white as they were in the past. In this fourth lesson, students will read and analyze an article from The New York Times written in 2007 for the 50thanniversary of the integration of Central High School and read a more recent article from USA Today.

Faceworking: Exploring Students' Education-Related Use of "Facebook", Learning, Media and Technology, 2009-Jun. Social networking sites such as "Facebook" and "MySpace" have been subject to much recent debate within the educational community.

Faceworking: Exploring Students' Education-Related Use of "Facebook", Learning, Media and Technology, 2009-Jun

Whilst growing numbers of educators celebrate the potential of social networking to (re)engage learners with their studies, others fear that such applications compromise and disrupt young people's engagement with "traditional" education provision. With these ongoing debates in mind, the current paper presents an in-depth qualitative analysis of the "Facebook" "wall" activity of 909 undergraduate students in a UK university.
