I've used them and know they work. You'll find that people become so involved with the fun and enjoyment that they forget to be fearful! 1. Interview Introductions Interview Introductions are a great way to break the ice with a new group of people.

As it's a lot less threatening or scary to talk about someone else rather than yourself, you'll find people respond really positively as they're generally eager to represent the person they interviewed well. Instructions Divide your group into pairs.Each person interviews the other in turn. 2. Gather up a collection of interesting images/photos from magazines or newspapers - enough for your class to have one each and then a few spare. Place them face down and have everybody pick one. 3.

Sherman_alexie. Black & Blue. My father used to beat the shit out of me. I don’t say that to be shocking, or to get your attention. I say that because it’s just a simple fact. He would throw punches. Not like he was hitting a small child — but like he was in a bar fight with a grown man. Whenever some people hear the phrase “child abuse,” it’s very hard for them to think about what’s really happening. They imagine discipline that gets out of hand once in a while, because it’s easier that way. How many times have you heard someone say this? “My parents used to give me the belt, and I turned out OK.”

So let me be really clear about what happened to me. By the time I was 10, it got worse. I thought it was normal. He always stopped short of knocking me unconscious, because that would defeat his purpose. As strange as it might sound, the routine physical abuse was something I learned to endure. He would put cigarettes out on me. I could go on for thousands of more words about the physical abuse, but there’s no point. 9.

Hands-on learning is very important for middle school age students. As children move through the middle school years they begin to think more critically and ask many “why” questions.

It is not enough to read a fact in a book, they want to test theories and explore possibilities for themselves and hands-on learning activities help to achieve that goal. Middle school students are also becoming more independent learners. Often they can complete hands-on learning activities with little help from adults. Learning to follow directions and working through a problem in a step-by-step fashion are important skills to develop at this age. With the help of our friends we have gathered many wonderful hands-on learning activities for middle school students in the areas of Art, Field Trips, History & Geography, Language Arts, Life Skills, Math, and Science.

We hope this list will be a resource families can refer back to whenever they are looking for an interesting project to enhance their learning. Art. 100 Hands-On Activities for Middle School and High School. Hands-on learning is the best kind of learning, as far as I’m concerned. Sadly, as kids get older, the ideas for hands-on projects seem to dwindle. That’s why I wanted to compile a list of 100 hands-on activities for middle school and high school students. I do want to include on caveat – not all of these activities are specifically geared toward older students, but I think that often activities for younger kids can be beneficial to older students when they are adapted by turning all of the planning and execution of the project over to the student (as opposed to a parent helping) or by requiring more detail than may be required of a younger student.

Killing Us Softly 3: Advertising's Image of Women. Young People and Placemaking: Engaging Youth to Create Community Places. Fremantle Esplanade Youth Plaza, located in Fremantle, Australia, specially caters to young people | Photo via City of Fremantle Young people use public spaces just as much as anyone else, if not more. And yet, too often young people, or young adults between the ages of 12 to 25, are not included in the process of Placemaking and end up “loitering” in other spaces. Some communities frown upon loitering, which can create a negative image for young people and just contributes to the stigma surrounding them, especially those who are at risk. By being actively engaged in youth-friendly spaces, young people can feel like they have investment in their community and they can develop a strong sense of ownership in these places.

Parks and public spaces are often built with small children and adults in mind, with an emphasis on playgrounds for the children and benches for the adults watching them. Young people are also great entrepreneurs and can be extremely resourceful. 1. 2. 3. 4. Activities and Exercises - Gender - CROW (Resources for the Teaching of Social Psychology) Gender Activities and Exercises I use this activity in my stereotypes course to address the role of the media in both reflecting and maintaining gender roles, stereotypes etc.

You might find it useful to. I ask students to purchase a magazine of their choice, something they would normally read (no pornography please), to read it cover to cover, and then to identify examples in text, images, etc. that either support or counter traditional gender roles and stereotypes. Students flag the examples in their magazines and bring them to class. I begin class with a partial viewing of the film "Killing Us Softly" and then open discussion about what they found in their magazines. The idea is to get students thinking about how the media is both constrained by social/cultural norms (they use these images and ideas because that is what readers expect) and responsible for maintaining these expectations (what people see is what they come to expect). 2. 3.

A Better List Of Ideas For Project-Based Learning. A Better List Of Ideas For Project-Based Learning At TeachThought, we’re huge fans of project-based learning. While there is no magic bullet of practice, program, or framework that automatically produces progressive and effective learning, what makes project-based learning exceptional is its flexibility. As it is, first and foremost, simply a curriculum planning tool, so much other “good stuff” that can support learning (game-based learning, learning simulations, place-based education, self-directed learning, etc.) can all be “embedded” in project-based learning. With PBL, there is no “either/or” proposition: anything from open-ended, play-based learning to data-driven, research-based instructional environments can all use PBL effectively.

While there are all kinds of great resources necessary to “run” PBL (including those from, from apps to planning templates and more, the genesis of a great project is the idea itself–the purpose and/or audience of the project itself. 1. 2. English Project Ideas for Language Arts Project-Based Learning. I used to struggle with putting together lesson plans. My first English project idea was to turn the dreaded book report into an authentic book review. My third graders published their reviews on (with the help of parent volunteers). It was rewarding to see the kids embrace the project and write more eloquently and thoughtfully than they would for a typical book report, but like many other first-time project plans, the whole thing required much more planning time than I had imagined.

Then I discovered these time-saving resources. These lesson plans serve as guides and ready-made formulas to help teachers bring authentic, inquiry-based learning experiences to their students. It's relatively easy to adapt quite a few of them to a broader variety of grade levels or to a homeschooling curriculum. All of these projects are listed by grade level.
