Teaching Channel takes you inside America's K-12 classrooms with 5 short documentaries that showcase inspiring and effective teaching practices. Watch high-achievers excel in a mixed grade classroom. See how a teacher uses food coloring to mix up her math class. Visit a 7th grade science class as they dig into history with fossils. Learn some classroom management strategies as Jim Knight advises a language arts class, and get tied up in a creative way to teach the history of the Earth. Amazing Classrooms - Engaging the High Achievers - A multi-age class of high-achieving 4th, 5th, and 6th graders learns how to communicate effectively, learn independently, and resolve conflicts. Great Lesson Ideas - Algebra 1: Mixture Problems - Mixture problems make sense when an algebra teacher uses an in-class demonstration and a graphic organizer to put students' common sense to work. Great Lesson Ideas - Hook Stations - Students visit stations around the room, discover concepts for themselves, and generate questions to investigate in a kick-off for a unit on geological timeline and fossils. Talking about Teaching with Jim Knight - Student Engagement in Language Arts - Instructional coach Jim Knight advises a new teacher on how to keep students engaged and on task throughout the class by emphasizing effort and getting attention before asking questions. Tough to Teach - History of the Earth- Students build a life-size timeline to go back in time to the creation of Earth, learn about periods in our Earth's history, and work through ideas around proportionality.
