Help students develop personal financial literacy as a real-world connection to your curriculum. At this site, teens take a quiz to find out their background, financial needs, and monthly expenditures. The next page shows users how much money they need to earn to fulfill just their basic needs. The calculator breaks the amount needed to earnings per hour times how many hours per week they'd need to work. It also displays a breakdown of what types of employment would yield the desired amount. Of course, the site also shows that the more educated one is, the better the wages.

tag(s): money (185)

In the Classroom

Have students navigate the quiz and scenarios on laptops or in a lab-- or even as homework-- as part of you unit on life after high school or career planning. There is more teacher information and an explanation of standards available in the drop-down menus.

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 (13)

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.

There are also tips on do's and don'ts of using bibliotherapy with children. The booklists themselves may be helpful for a librarian or classroom teacher to make recommendations to students. Guidance counselors will appreciate having a place to go to make recommendations to parents, as well. The site author, though not himself a psychologist, has actually compiled these lists from multiple sources, including reputable libraries and professional groups.

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.

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.
