TAAPWorld - The Environmental Impact of the Industrial Revolution The Industrial Revolution changed the relationship between humans and their environment. Human development, public health, energy usage and sanitation all felt the effects of the advances made as a result of the Industrial Revolution.

Using Old Maps as Tools to Explore Our World What Is It? In this bulletin board activity, students work collaboratively to explore sections of old maps. By closely examining these unique historical documents, students learn to see maps as more than just tools for locating places. And, whatever the grade level, this activity prompts students to grapple with the basic elements of the social studies: people, space, time, meaning, and purpose. Rationale Maps are essential tools in modern life but they also are primary source documents reflecting the people, time, and culture that produced them. Description After selecting a map, the teacher should photocopy it with two concerns in mind: It should be a suitable size for an available bulletin board or display area. In the classroom, groups of students will work with single sections of the map, using a specific procedure (see Handout 1) that will help them uncover meaning in the map. Teacher Preparation Scheduling: Place this lesson into your school’s curriculum and your course calendar.

Conversations and Observations - Every Single Student Had a conversation with one of my Math Analysis students yesterday about the flipped class. I guess one our other math teachers decided to have the students do a statistical analysis with some data this teacher got on the flipped classroom that "proved" it doesn't affect student achievement. Several of my students are co-enrolled in both courses, so of course those that prefer the traditional classroom took it as an opportunity to loudly share their opinions in that class, while the others just kind of sat there quietly. I don't really want to discuss that situation any further, but more so what came about because of it. Anyways, this student who told me about it is one who loves the flipped class, so it was an interesting conversation to have. "Imagine I was teaching you about the Trig Functions today. I then asked him to take a glance around the classroom right then. EVERY SINGLE STUDENT was working. EVERY SINGLE STUDENT was engaged. Or, THEY are doing something right.

Första världskriget Videopresentation del 1: Ladda ner powerpointen Videopresentation del 2: Ladda ner powerpointen Den 28 juni 1914 skakades Europa av ett attentat. Den österrikiska tronföljaren Franz Ferdinand och hans hustru Sophie blev mördade när de var på besök i den bosniska huvudstaden Sarajevo. Hur och varför kunde ett politiskt attentat leda till ett europeiskt storkrig? Det fanns ett antal allmänna förutsättningar som ökade risken för konflikter i Europa, och så mer specifika orsaker till att kriget bröt ut. Förutsättningar Den grundläggande förutsättningen för att det skulle bli krig var Tysklands roll i Europa. Den tyska rikskanslern Bismarck dominerade europeisk politik genom att skapa allianser med Österrike, Italien och Ryssland samt hålla sig på vänskaplig fot med Storbritannien. Detta system kollapsade dock 1890, när den nye tyske kejsaren Wilhelm II ville sköta utrikespolitiken själv och avskedade Bismarck. Europa 1914 Orsaker Nationalism var också motivet bakom mordet på Franz Ferdinand.
