Rating

Lesson Focus Question: How did the Black Panther Party’s survival programs, specifically the Free Breakfast Program, support the organization’s larger goals for systemic change?

Teaching Thesis: Although the Black Panther Party is remembered for its use of military tactics and emphasis on police patrols and open carry demonstrations, they also developed programs to meet the day to day needs of community members. The Black Panther Party survival programs, namely the free breakfast program, were instrumental in furthering the organization’s objectives. The survival programs served as a powerful recruiting tool and helped to meet the basic needs of community members so that they could focus on the larger goals of peace, justice, freedom, and self-determination.

Abraham Lincoln and Thanksgiving
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC
Rating
0.0 stars

This instructional kit is designed for use in a third grade classroom and is based off of Virginia Standards of Learning that require students to identify the contributions of Abraham Lincoln (3.11 b). Thanksgiving is typically given a lot of attention in elementary level classrooms; but, this attention is focused on the symbols we attach with Thanksgiving (turkeys, corn, pilgrims) and talk of how students plan to spend Thanksgiving (eating, watching football, watching the Macy’s Parade). Little to no attention is given to the history of Thanksgiving, other than brief lessons on the Pilgrims. Students learn that Thanksgiving originated with the pilgrims in Plymouth Rock, but teachers rarely delve deeper into the history of the traditional American holiday. Thanksgiving has drastically changed from the bountiful feast of the Pilgrims and Indians to a religious holiday associated with the Civil War, to a holiday marked by food, football, and a huge parade. It is important for students to understand why and how such an important and prominent holiday has evolved and developed.

America Under the Articles of Confederation
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC
Rating
0.0 stars

Students often have a hard time grasping the Articles of Confederation and usually end up knowing little more than that they were weak. Often, however, time is not devoted to understanding why they were weak and how these weaknesses affected the United States at home and globally. By having students look at primary sources that show what the Articles could and could not do, they should have a much clearer grasp on what the Articles were all about. The activity involves reading historical situations, mainly from letters of the American Revolutionary time period and beyond, and assessing what those historical situations can show us about the Articles today. They will finish the first day by playing a game that reinforces the weaknesses of the Articles of Confederation. The students will also analyze political cartoons that focus on the global connection of the United States to the rest of the powerful nations of the time. The final assessment of the lesson involves making a foldable or creating a comic strip.

Rating
0.0 stars

The goal of this preparatory textbook is to give students a chance to familiarize with some terms and some basic concepts they will find in an Anatomy and Physiology course. Organization and functioning of the human organism are generally presented starting from the simplest building blocks, and then moving into levels of increasing complexity. This textbook follows the same presentation. It starts introducing the concept of homeostasis, then covers the chemical level, and later on a basic introduction to cellular level, organ level, and organ system levels. This second edition incorporates a module on protein synthesis, and a complementary base pairing learning objective as requested by many students. This edition also adds audio for all learning objectives. Audio Icon by Kieselli form Pixabay. The textbook is organized in five UNITS, divided into sixteen MODULES covering a total of fifty-two Learning Objectives. There is a short self-assessment at the end of each learning objective.
