Love it. Thanks for this Seth. Just in time to promote Geography at parent/teacher night!
Samuel Yeats's curator insight, May 8, 2013 12:34 AM

A facetious look into the world of studying Geography. These students have obviously gone to a masive effort to explore their passion for Geography. While it may not be a stereotypically academic or intellectual piece, this video is a great representation of how a Geographer thinks broadly, critically and evaluatively.

Carmen Martinez's curator insight, August 26, 12:17 PM

Interesting video!

Reading Like a Historian: Sourcing

 

Sourcing documents is a key skill within the curriculum for Reading Like A Historian. Discover a way to structure a sourcing lesson for your High School History class.

 

What does it mean that literacy crosses all subjects? In short, this means that because we don’t read novels the same way we read science labs or the same way we read histories, all of us get to teach the different faces of literacy.

MoMA | Back to School: A Taste of Finland | Classrooms | Scoop.it

 

 The most regulated aspect of many children’s everyday relationship with food is school lunch, and this is exactly the subject of Back to School: A Taste of Finland. In this series, a collaboration between the exhibition curators, MoMA’s Cafe 2, and the Consulate General of Finland, adults are invited to participate in a meal inspired by the koululounas (school lunches) of Finland, a country consistently recognized for excelling in all aspects of public education. According to its National Board of Education, Finland was the first country in the world to serve free, regulated school meals to children on a large scale, starting in 1948. Today, balanced meals of local and inexpensive ingredients provide both energy and educational value.
