Plan Family Vacation Webquest What if YOU were the one to choose where your family goes on vacation? What if you got to plan all activities, where to stay, and what to eat? Here's your chance! Created by Alena Zink and Betsy Cain Thinkuknow - home The CEOP Command’s Thinkuknow programme provides resources, training and support for professionals who work directly with children and young people. Our films, learning activities and other resources are developed in response to intelligence from child protection experts within the CEOP Command. They are designed to help children and young people keep themselves safe from sexual abuse and exploitation by developing skills in identifying and avoiding risk, learning how best to protect themselves and their friends, and knowing how to get support and report abuse if they do encounter difficulties. A wide range of resources for use with parents and carers are also available.

Yet Another Way to Subtract When Alfred, a sixth-grade teacher, explained the trouble-coming method of subtraction he learned as an elementary student, he recalled that his teacher had pointed out that you didn’t “make any cross-outs” or “write those little 1s.” He said that his teacher’s tone of voice made it sound as if doing subtraction without marks of any kind had to be superior. You can decide about that. To describe the trouble-coming method for you, I made a short video (less than a minute and a half) to demonstrate with a sample problem. A warning first: You may find the video deadly dull. My husband, Jeffrey, listening to me record my explanation, wondered if perhaps I could use, well, a more conversational tone.
Map your moves Data This map distills more than 4000 moves from over 1700 people, collected in an informal survey by WNYC, a New York based public radio station.

By Carol Lloyd As sure as one plus one equals two, it happens year after year. Kids who have been bringing home A's in chemistry and acing AP Calculus arrive at college with visions of STEM careers dancing in their heads. Then they hit an invisible, but very painful, wall. According to research from the University of California, Los Angeles, as many as 60 percent of all college students who intend to study a STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) subject end up transferring out.
Wind Map An invisible, ancient source of energy surrounds us—energy that powered the first explorations of the world, and that may be a key to the future. This map shows you the delicate tracery of wind flowing over the US. The wind map is a personal art project, not associated with any company. We've done our best to make this as accurate as possible, but can't make any guarantees about the correctness of the data or our software. Please do not use the map or its data to fly a plane, sail a boat, or fight wildfires :-) If the map is missing or seems slow, we recommend the latest Chrome browser.
Reading Comprehension Worksheets "Your reading comprehension materials are the best I've found on the web. They are so thorough and comprehensive! My students and I have learned a lot from them. Thanks so much!" -- Susan B., Carter, KY. 03/21/12 Open Professionals Education Network CC licensed (BY) Flickr photo shared by David Amsler modified by Paul Stacey Reusing existing Open Educational Resources (OER) can save significant time and effort. The OPEN partners recommend TAACCCT grantees invest up-front time finding OER to reuse rather than starting development of new educational resources right away. A significant benefit of OER is that they provide source material to build your development efforts around.

Public/Private Public/Private is a game that explores the topic of privacy in our cities by focusing on where we find it. By choosing where in your city you seek privacy most often, you produce a visual graph representing those choices. Your graph is then combined with graphs generated by the rest of the global audience, creating a live data-visualization that illustrates how our experience of privacy changes at a local and global level.
