This module focuses on the people and cultures of Latin America. Students will explore the social,
historical, political, economic, geographical, and cultural and religious forces that contribute to mental health
issues in Latin America. Although significant preventative and treatment efforts have been made to address
mental health issues in Latin America, many Latin American individuals continue to suffer from mental illness
without treatment. Further adding to this is the prevalence of social stigma that impedes the likelihood that
people will seek help when needed. This module utilizes a multidisciplinary approach to developing an
understanding of these issues, while also exposing students to a variety of educational technologies.

Recognizing the urgent need for students to understand the emergence of the United States’ power and prestige in relation to world events, America on the World Stage: A Global Perspective to U.S. History (Organization of American Historians, 2008) reframes the teaching of American history in a global context. Each essay covers a specific chronological period and approaches fundamental topics and events in United States history from an international perspective, emphasizing how the development of the United States has always depended on its transactions with other nations for commodities, cultural values, and populations. For each historical period, the authors also provide practical guidance on bringing this international approach to the classroom, with suggested lesson plans and activities. America on the World Stage Teaching American History grant is a five year project (2009-14) that brings the book of the same name to life through a seriesof interactive lectures, hands-on workshops, research and curriculum design, and summer travel courses. Our approach will be to explore the international perspectives of American history through a series of benchmark topics.

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.

Animals at War

Animals at War is designed for upper elementary school students in 4th/5th grade. Students will be introduced to the kit with a story about a young child who uses a service dog in her everyday life and why this animal is so important to her survival. Young children are fascinated with animals and superheroes and this unit combines both of these interests into one. Animals played a key role during World War I and World War II and were used in a variety of ways. Countless animals provided tasks that would not have been possible by humans and their stories have been recorded in pictures, journals, legal documents, letters and newspaper articles. During this kit, students will work in pairs or small groups to use a variety of primary source documents to research 8 different animal breeds. Through this research, they will discover how the animal served, when they served, and how they were remembered. Interactive global mapping is embedded in both lessons to enable the students to see the impact that the wars had on the entire world geographically.
