Top Documentary Films contains a large collection of documentaries from around the world. Choose "Browse Documentaries" to explore documentaries available, or click on categories to view by topics such as Politics, Science, etc. Choose the documentary list to view a complete listing of all available films. Each listing includes a short description along with a link to view the video. Videos are hosted on YouTube. If your district blocks YouTube, they may not be viewable. You could always view the videos at home and bring them to class "on a stick" to share. Use a tool such as KeepVid reviewed here to download the videos from YouTube. Be sure to PREVIEW videos before showing to a class as they are unmoderated. Comments are also unmoderated. There is a wonderful disclaimer at the lower left of the home page about bias and documentaries. It is well worth noting as you watch ANY "documentary."

In the Classroom

Use this site to find videos in a wide range of topics to share on your interactive whiteboard, on a projector, or as a link on your class web page. Use videos to demonstrate different points of view. Then use an online tool such as Interactive Two Circle Venn Diagram (reviewed here) to compare and contrast information. Have students create a word cloud of the important terms they learn from any film using a tool such as Wordle (reviewed here). Want to engage students WHILE they watch a video? Why not set up a backchannel chat using Todaysmeet, reviewed here. Be sure to ask your class if there could have been any bias in the video you watch together. What film techniques influence our thinking?

This site teaches survival skills through interactive demonstrations with sound. Although some of the topics appear elementary level, the presentations are written for older students and adults. For example, the time-telling activity is not designed for primary grades. General topics include using money, cooking, shopping, getting around, HIV/AIDS, using numbers, using time, safety, and more.

tag(s): cooking (30), hiv/aids (17), maps (249), money (178), nutrition (139), safety (98), transportation (35), word study (59)

In the Classroom

Use these activities with ESL/ELL students or special ed students to reinforce concepts visually and with sounds. Let students experience practical life skills such as how to use an ATM machine using the interactive. Share the many interactives and/or video clips on your interactive whiteboard or in a learning center. A printable AIDS workbook would be helpful for older students in health classes. This is a great site to link on your class website for students (and families) to check out at home. Middle school Family and Consumer science classes will find many of the topics fit right into the curriculum.

Use this (site) project to apply puzzle-solving skills to determine how proteins are folded. Proteins are fascinating, but their structures are difficult to comprehend. Why study the folding of proteins? The folding determines how they function and has implications for human health and how we live with materials and the environment. Bring out thinking processes with this downloadable interactive. Each protein becomes a puzzle. Players manipulate the protein into the form that provides the most efficiency. Researchers are tapping into the potential of the human brain to identify patterns. Understand the formation and breakdown of proteins through game play. Identify the four structures in proteins and their role in the functions and specificity of proteins. Download is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux. There is an option to "join" for a fee. However, this is necessary only if you wish to comment on the site. As a "real world" connection showing the impact of this "game," see this article about the discoveries about HIV/AIDS that resulted from Fold It.

tag(s): atoms (52), molecules (37)

In the Classroom

Allow students time to manipulate this site and learn the structures of proteins prior to the discussion of the content of the unit. Brainstorm what students have learned to develop notes or major content points. Identify the specific proteins and functions and determine why certain proteins have specific shapes. Identify the roles of proteins in the bodies of all living organisms. Connect these proteins with proteins in the diet and discuss the importance. Determine protein sources that are more beneficial for the human body. Think you have found the best way to fold the proteins? Register on the site and discuss the pattern.

The Wide Angle PBS series is geared towards bringing students to a greater understanding of global current events through briefings, interactive maps, and additional resources. This 2003 episode focuses on the battle against HIV/AIDS on Angola. There is a full length video, photo-essay, interview, and much more. While this episode is now past, it provides a solid timeline of the history of the region.

In the Classroom

Use this site as an introductory vignette of one African country in your world cultures class or as a case study on HIV/AIDS in Africa. Combine the simpler maps here with the visualization tools for current data through tools such as Many Eyes, (reviewed here) to present AIDS data in a visual form for sharing on an interactive whiteboard or projector (Search Many Eyes for "AIDS" to find many visualized forms of HIV/AIDS data from around the world).

This webpage on the evolution of disease provides clear information about how natural selection works with infectious agents. It also addresses the concept of exponential growth. After reading the information, click on the flash clip at the bottom of the first page to view a simulation of how a single E.coli bacteria reproduces. You can also find information on HIV, Malaria, TB, and more. This is a great image for having students understand bacterial reproduction.

tag(s): bacteria (28), diseases (55), hiv/aids (17), population (52)

In the Classroom

Use this to teach evolution, bacteria, or population growth in biology and environmental science. This will help students better understand how bacteria reproduce, and why disease causing organisms are so very successful. Start a lesson on bacteria infections by asking students "why is bacteria such a big problem?" Ask students whether they think bacteria as a species are successful or not. Have students read and watch the flash simulation. Have students discuss the rate of growth, and make sure to point out that the simulation is timed just the way that bacteria reproduce in nature. This would also make a good lead into a conversation about how not all evolution is good for the human species. It will help to point out that humans are just another animal species, and need to be studied as such.
