Shakespeare Uncovered

Shakespeare Uncovered
Shakespeare Uncovered combines history, biography, iconic performances, new analysis, and the personal passions of its celebrated hosts to tell the stories behind the stories of Shakespeare’s greatest plays. The Series 2 resources (A Midsummer Night’s Dream, King Lear, Romeo and Juliet, and Othello) were created in partnership with the Folger Shakespeare Library. The resources for the first series (Macbeth, the comedies Twelfth Night and As You Like It, Richard II, Henry IV and Henry V, Hamlet and The Tempest ) were created in collaboration with an advisory board comprised of high school educators and Shakespearean scholars.

Free Mockingbird Unit I have slowly been adding curriculum to the site, yet already THOUSANDS of educators have downloaded my Romeo and Juliet Starter Unit. I’ve found many of you are interested in my Famous Facebook Profiles for Character Analysis, which I have also included here with characters from To Kill a Mockingbird. Just like my very popular Romeo and Juliet Unit, this packet has quizzes, midterms, and a final exam, as well as a few strategies and handouts that might be helpful for new teachers, or teachers who are overwhelmed and unsupported (which seems to be almost all of us, right?). This is not a full unit, and not meant to be representative of how I teach TKAM. There are just a few things here that I think would be a good place to start for good teachers to build on. I remember when I was a first year teacher thinking I would kill for a couple handouts, a quiz or two and a final exam.

At-Risk At-Risk is an interactive, game-based simulation that aims to reduce the stigma associated with mental illness in order to reduce the number of students with undetected or untreated conditions. Tailored for use among university faculty and staff, At-Risk addresses the fear and stigma of mental illness that may prevent university faculty and staff from approaching and assisting students exhibiting symptoms of mental illness, such as depression, anxiety, and thoughts of suicide. In the 45-minute simulation, players assume the role of a faculty member who is concerned about five of his students. The player analyzes profiles of these virtual students to identify the three who are at-risk and then engages in simulated conversations with each of them to determine whether and how to refer them to the counseling center.

hands-on experiments Ciênsação has been developed with the support of UNESCO Brasil to promote a culture of short hands-on experiments and skill-fostering science education. We understand that the pressure of a dense curriculum and the urge to prepare for the next exam leave little time for elaborated experiments. Experienced teachers have therefore compiled this collection of short research activities – taking usually less than 10 minutes to complete – that you can easily integrate into your day-to-day teaching. These student research activities are a bit different from experiments you may find on YouTube or in text books. They are specifically designed to foster skills like analytical thinking and task oriented team work.
