The Strategic Education Research Partnership has a nice tool for teachers that provides a series of discussable dilemmas designed to promote students’ academic language and argumentation skills. It begins with questions like “What is the purpose of school?” Supporting materials for teachers and students are provided free of charge. There are resources for fourth through eighth grades.

From the University of Michigan…”ImagineNation Matters “virtual tour” modules are like storybooks come to life, in which upper elementary students can explore the sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald, experience the human drama of the Underground Railroad, or traverse the history of Mackinac Island. Each of our modules is in the form of a story that involves protagonists of the approximate age of our student participants.”

Spark101 features engaging, well-developed STEM video case studies for classroom use. Each video focuses on a problem and how it was approached in a professional context. For instance, a nine minute video on the Innovation Process at the Garfield Center described challenges facing healthcare and investigated how technology could provide a solution. Teacher resources and student packets are provided.
