Follow Teaching Channel as we explore exceptional K-12 classrooms. Listen as a teacher uses rhythm to assist students with their reading skills. Watch students analyze greenhouse gases through plastic soda bottles, and learn an entertaining way to teach fractions. Amazing Classrooms - Reading and Rhythm - Percussionist Steven Angel has developed an innovative program that uses rhythm to help struggling students improve their reading fluency and comprehension. Classroom Close-Up - Climate Change in a Bottle - Suney Park uses soda bottles, thermometers and light bulbs to create an experiement about the importance of green house gases and climate change. Tough to Teach - Fractions with Borrowing - Beverly Gonzalez uses paper pizzas to give her students a practical application for subtracting fractions. She fully engages the class with her "cowboy math" technique, white boards, peer coaching, and the "bull pen" (where students go for extra instruction before "the game").
