MATH522 Teaching Math (Grades K-2): A Special Collection from Annenberg Learner

Grades:
Kindergarten-2nd
Hours:
45.0

Expand your understanding and practice of the key five process standards developed by National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM): Communication, Problem Solving, Reasoning and Proof, Representation, and Connections through multimedia resources (videos, student-teacher dialogues, and interactives) from Annenberg Learner. These process standards complement the mathematical content standards from NCTM. When both are used effectively in the classroom, students gain a fuller sense of what mathematics is, and have a greater opportunity for achieving understanding of its concepts and developing necessary mathematical thinking skills.

SOST502 Bridging World History: A Special Collection from Annenberg Learner

Grades:
9th-12th
Hours:
45.0

This inquiry-based course will enable you to research and explore the world history concepts and resources that meet your curriculum and student learning needs. Delve into world history units provided by Annenberg Learner that explore global patterns through time, seeing history as an integrated whole with an eye to bringing world history concepts to life in the classroom. Develop essential questions and a framework based on your curriculum for your exploration and work through this course. Analyze primary source documents, artifacts, and expert videos and develop an instructional unit to implement with students that develops their historical thinking skills and brings the past to life in your classroom.

SCIE572 The Habitable Planet: A Systems Approach to Environmental Science—A Special Collection from Annenberg Learner

Grades:
9th-12th
Hours:
45.0

This course helps to provide a background for understanding and discussing the natural functioning of the different Earth systems: geophysical systems, the atmosphere, the oceans, and natural ecosystems. Examine the unique characteristics that make our planet habitable and investigate the effects of human actions on different natural systems: land use, air and water pollution, biodiversity decline, and the extraction of resources. What can be predicted, given current trends, if humans act in concert to mitigate their impact on the planetary system? Use inquiry-based learning techniques to determine which multimedia resources—Annenberg Learner videos, interactive labs, and more—will best engage your students and hone their skills as scientific thinkers.

MATH527 Mathematics Illuminated: A Special Collection from Annenberg Learner

Grades:
9th-12th
Hours:
45.0

This course reaches beyond formulas and computations to explore the math of patterns, symmetry, relationships, multiple dimensions, and more, all the while exploring the ever-evolving field of mathematics. The course approaches mathematics as a means to greater understanding of the power of math in everyday life, rather than as a successive set of skills to be mastered. You will research and explore the mathematical concepts and resources that meet your curriculum and student learning needs from among the rich resources at the Annenberg Learner Mathematics Illuminated website. This course will also engage you in learning more about the mathematics process standards from the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. By the end of this course, you will have developed an instructional unit based on your students' learning needs and your current mathematics curriculum.

SOST1011 Developing Chronological Reasoning Skills

Grades:
6th-12th
Hours:
3.0

What would history be without chronology? It’s impossible to imagine, as chronological reasoning is perhaps the most foundational skill of the discipline. Explore alternative conceptions of time and, focusing on topics related to global economics and the transmission of culture, consider how to help students better understand periodization, causation, and patterns of continuity and change using multimedia resources from Annenberg Learner.

SOST1031 Resistance, Rebellion, and Reform

Grades:
6th-12th
Hours:
3.0

Is, as Thomas Jefferson famously wrote, a “little rebellion now and then” a good thing? Even in a country born from a rebellion against a colonial power, resistance, rebellion, and reform can be unpopular and difficult undertakings. Through Annenberg Learner videos, interviews with historians, and primary and secondary sources, examine three cases in which Americans sought change.

SOST1001 Using Primary Sources in World History

Grades:
6th-12th
Hours:
3.0

Primary sources are the “stuff” of history, the evidence that historians use to develop narratives and explanations of past events. Through multimedia resources from Annenberg Learner, engage with a range of sources from around the globe. Consider historians’ reflections on their use of such evidence to gain insight into how primary sources can be used in world history classrooms, as well as how to handle the challenges of engaging students with source material.

SOST1025 Geography and Environment in American History

Grades:
6th-12th
Hours:
3.0

Washington’s troops suffering through the winter at Valley Forge, the Framers perspiring in Philadelphia’s summer heat, Sacajawea traveling with Lewis and Clark along the Columbia River, the Forty-Niners rushing to California in search of gold—many of the most memorable events in American history cannot be imagined apart from the places in which they took place. Explore the relationship between geography and history, analyzing Annenberg Learner videos, primary source documents, and the work of geographers and historians.

SCIE1001 Many Planets One Earth

Grades:
9th-12th
Hours:
3.0

How exceptional are the conditions that allow life to develop and diversify on Earth? No other planet in our solar system has developed along the same geologic and biologic path as Earth. Life as we know it is a direct result of specific conditions that appear thus far to be unique to our planet. Through Annenberg Learner videos, interactive labs, and data analysis, examine the unique characteristics that make our planet habitable and learn about the critical systems that help to regulate Earth’s climate.

SCIE1011 Human Impacts on Environmental Systems

Grades:
9th-12th
Hours:
3.0

As our world population continues to grow, human impacts on the Earth’s environmental systems will continue to affect the health and stability of our ecosystem. How can we protect our water resources and the Earth’s biodiversity while also meeting our energy challenges? Through Annenberg Learner videos, interactive labs, and data analysis, learners will examine how water resource issues and the decline in biodiversity affect life on Earth. Learners will also investigate how we can provide the energy we need while maintaining an ecological balance.
