I love teaching fractions.

The Stamp Act with taxation using “Smarties” and taxing the students as colonists.

I love teaching the population unit when I get to it in environmental science. They can really see how science, social studies, and other subjects start to overlap in the real world. It also has easy concepts to grasp even though it has solutions that are really hard to come up with (even the pros are still arguing about best plans)

like

Genetics

like

Teaching the concepts of Mood and Dynamics in music using Dancing Ribbons. Even the 4th graders loved them. It's great seeing them act out what they hear, from ballet to spies!

like

Hamlet. I love showing them literature isn’t an “informational text” and that Hamlet was going through a lot of the same things, girl trouble, being snarky to his parents, even thoughts of suicide. It often gets them to open up about their lives

like

Electoral College the day after the 2000 election. We were in our constitution unit. So timely.

I'm a biology teacher and always enjoy teaching my students about acid titration!

Figurative language - class used a Flocabulary song and created a dance to it.

Economics... Bartering... Pass out candy..have kids exchange to increase their happiness.. I give them a survey before to make sure it works..? Always fun

I did a lesson on the Titanic, it was fun for me and the kids! Did several activities related to it, great lesson!

I have 2! 1) A language intervention lesson on inventions (with a kindergartener and a 3rd grader). The students learned about different inventors and their inventions, then created an invention of their own using random items (popsicle sticks, pom poms, string, paper, glue, etc.). 2) A unit on finding, applying to, and interviewing for a job (with a senior). She picked a place of business then we talked about all the positions at that business and their requirements. We did a mock application for a position at the business, put together a resume, and then did a mock interview

Religion studies when we hit Christianity. So many questions and great discussion

I love teaching about pressure and how it relates to my Earth Science curriculum. I do several demonstrations and the kids really love seeing science in action!

Does anyone know of where to find remote part time work opportunities for older Indian women? My mom was a part-time after school teacher but has not been doing that due to covid (dad is high risk). I’m having her do some online typing lessons to get her to be a faster typer, maybe find her a data entry gig. She does not want to do nanny’ing / babysitting. She’s a great teacher though and she’s trilingual (Telugu, hindi) - anyone know of where to find opportunities?

What do you think that the education system needs to do, to get young people to be better prepared with challenges in life? For example, I grew up in Malaysia, national secondary schools had home science lessons, where we learnt from ironing to cooking to carpentry to sewing to plumbing to soldering on a circuit board where we did individually or in teams. To me, these skills altogether prepped me with a lifelong ‘Swiss Army knife’! Anyone with children with ideas?
