Spoken Word : A COMPLETE HOW-TO GUIDE & LESSONS FOR CREATING SPOKEN WORD MULTIMEDIA

Posted on Apr 29, 2014 by katherine Yamashita Last Activity on Jul 8, 2014

This unit guides students through all the steps needed to create a multi-media spoken word piece. It is designed for use in the Digital Media, Media Arts, English Media or Communications Technology classroom. It can also be used in any media literacy unit or unit on social justice.  This is the teacher information page for this unit. Access to the Internet and student access to millions of pieces of content means students are more than ever tempted to break copyright. I structured this unit to encourage students to create all of their own content, however I do allow the use of public domain and creative commons content. There is a great series of resources for teachers about teaching with digital media, copyright, social issues and youth advocacy in the Adobe Youth Voices page: Adobe Youth Voices Essentials. Another site with excellent resources related to this unit can be found on the Takin... Read More

Traditional Myths: Are They Still Relevant?

Posted on Apr 28, 2014 by George Botelho Last Activity on Apr 28, 2014

This project was based on work that I did with my upper-secondary English students in Papua New Guinea. The idea concerns the transition from traditional values held over a long period of time, to a modern world where many of the "old ways" are being lost in the race toward development and renewed self-identification. While the context for this project is Papua New Guinea as a developing country, the basic ideas in the traditional-to-modern framework could be adapted to a variety of contexts. Examples might include religion, how we entertain ourselves, free time, etc. The basic ideas of what cultures "value" may change drastically over generations. It is also useful to focus on where these values come from, and how they may have been compromised, adapted or replaced, to meet changes in society.

deviantART

Posted on Apr 27, 2014 by George Botelho Last Activity on Apr 27, 2014

http://edex.adobe.com/resource/3f-d026d/ I found this link to deviantART and the website is http://www.deviantart.com/ Their logo is "Where ART Meets Application" I do not use this site much, although my students try to encourage me to share my photos on it. For classroom work, it is a great resource because students can see and critique each others' work. In English class, it provides an opportunity to engage in speaking and general communication activities. Many of the students already are very good at post-processing their images, and creating real art from a simple photograph. I envy them for their abilities.

Quadratic equations - Compare the factoring AC Method and the new Transforming Method

Posted on Feb 17, 2014 by Nghi Nguyen Last Activity on Feb 17, 2014

There are so far 8 common methods to solve quadratic equations in standard form ax^2 + bx + c = 0. They are: graphing method, completing the squares, factoring FOIL method, quadratic formula, the Bluma method, the Diagonal Sum method, the factoring AC Method, and the new Transforming Method. When the given quadratic equation can be factored, the 2 best solving methods are the popular factoring AC Method and the recently introduced Transforming Method. This article generally describes these 2 methods then compare them through specific examples.

Solving quadratic equations by the quadratic formula in graphic form

Posted on Feb 17, 2014 by Nghi Nguyen Last Activity on Feb 17, 2014

There are so far 8 common methods to solve quadratic equations in standard form ax^2 + bx + c = 0. So, sometimes students are confused to select the best solving method. When the quadratic equation can be factored, the new Transforming Method (recently introduced on Adobe Edu Exchange website) would be the best choice since it can immediately obtain the 2 real roots without factoring and solving the binomials. When the equation can't be factored, the quadratic formula would be the obvious choice. Reminder: there is an improved quadratic formula called "The quadratic formula in graphic form" that may be simpler and easier to remember.

Solving quadratic equations by the Diagonal Sum Method.

Posted on Feb 17, 2014 by Nghi Nguyen Last Activity on Feb 17, 2014

Studies on solving methods of quadratic equations have been various and diversified. There are so far 8 common solving methods. They are: graphing, completing the square, factoring FOIL method, quadratic formula, the Bluma Method, the Diagonal Sum Method, the improved factoring AC Method, and the new Transforming Method. The Diagonal proceeds through a very different way from other methods. It directly find 2 real roots, in the form of 2 fractions, knowing their sum (-b/a) and their product (c/a). This article explains the concept and practices of this new solving method.

Solving quadratic equations by the new and improved factoring AC Method.

Posted on Feb 17, 2014 by Nghi Nguyen Last Activity on Feb 17, 2014

So far, the systematic factoring AC Method has been the most popular one to solve quadratic equations in standard form ax^2 + bx + c = 0. However, this method can be considerably improved if we apply the Rule of Signs of a quadratic equations into its solving process. This article generally explains how does the Rule of Signs improve the AC method. When a = 1, the improved method can immediately obtain the 2 real roots without factoring by grouping and solving the binomials.
