A Free, Interactive Course in Studio and Field Production-- This is a free course aimed at students interested in going into television production. It is exhaustive in its entirety and covers all aspects of the production from scripts to news reporting, editing, legal and ethical issues, etc. While it is geared to college students, upper level high school students would do well with some of this as well, especially those motivated by this subject matter. It also offers the entire course in Spanish and Portuguese.

Clicking on the "Readings and Information" menu will give you a "classroom related" menu that includes lesson plans and ideas. Scrolling down the main page, you can check on interactive test, crosswords, quizzes, video projects, and notes for both students and teachers.

tag(s): gifted (96), vision (87), writing (359)

In the Classroom

Wow, what a source for those teaching video or scriptwriting! This would be a valuable reference site for students interested in independent projects using video or for gifted enrichment projects, as well. If nothing else, assign lessons on composition and other "basics" to any student choosing to use video as a medium for a major project.

The New York Times Learning Network has brought together a number of resources on school violence. Although the site does not include any coverage of the 2006 Amish school shooting, there are contemporary Times reports of a number of other high-profile cases of school violence. The reports are coupled with several lesson plans designed to help students talk about these issues, as well as resources to help teachers plan effective discussions on school violence.

tag(s): school violence (12)

In the Classroom

Teachers cannot ignore the issues of school violence, nor hope they can avoid questions from students. The issue is not whether they should talk about it with students, but how they can do it most effectively and honestly. These lesson plans and resources can help teachers feel prepared, either for a planned discussion, or for the spur-of-the-moment question that becomes a teachable moment.

Part of a larger Canadian site designed to help secondary school students make career and educational decisions, this section is focused on career choice. There are a number of nice personality and abilities quizzes that offer career guidance. Some of the questionnaires are printable worksheets (requiring Acrobat Reader), and some are on-line and generate feedback automatically. One of the instruments generates a Myers-Briggs style personality type.

tag(s): careers (132), psychology (64)

In the Classroom

College and career planning cause significant angst among high school students. While none of what is posted on the site will tell students what they ought to do or where they ought to go, they will certainly provide some good insight and can help open a dialogue about these important choices. These activities should not be limited to the guidance counselors, but can be used in other classroom contexts with high school students. Be sure to provide this link on your class website for families to explore together.
 This resource requires PDF reader software like Adobe Acrobat.

Learn about the anatomy of the knee and how doctors perform knee surgery through this online simulation. It even includes a separate section with actual photographs for the strong-stomach crowd. The animated movie has the option to display subtitles (for the hearing impaired or computers without speakers) and stops to ask questions all along the way. The activities are correlated to Ohio and National standards. Teach about scientific inquiry using the section where you select the correct prosthetic knee device. Not only is this site an interesting look at a science topic for biology, anatomy, or physiology classes, it also provides a view into medical careers.

tag(s): careers (132), inquiry (37), medicine (67), olympics (47)

In the Classroom

Share this site as a real-world extension of a biology class on anatomical structures or in a career exploration activity. Students can navigate on their own computers or access the site from your teacher web page for use outside of class. Guidance counselors may want to include it among career links they offer to middle and high school students. Use this site during the Olympic games to discuss injuries that athletes may endure.

Click on the "Take a Lead" link for practical ways to turn your ideas into reality. Plenty of real-life examples are provided, but some creative brainstorming in your classroom is a must.

Introduce this site in a civics or government course in order to show students how important political awareness and activism can be - and how they can get involved. Dependent on your class, it may not be important to advocate that they join the cause - but more introduce it and let them know that they can. This might be better at the end of a civics course, culminating all the information they have learned thus far and showing a practical application of it.

Students in second-year algebra and beyond can answer this pressing question in a lesson that introduces a mathematical model comparing the cost of education to potential earnings. Students are challenged to determine if the investment is a good one. The reality of real-life debt is encountered as students compute the amount that must be repaid each year for the life of the loan and check out starting salaries of target careers. A discussion component asks students to critique the model and discuss other factors that should be taken into consideration. This is a thought-provoking, authentic application of math skills
