These materials are created to work as a course, combining activities to increase vocabulary, read, learn about Hispanic cultures and differentiate standard Spanish uses from the U.S. variants.
This module was created in response to an observed need by BranchED and the module authors for efforts to increase the recognition, adaptation, and use of open educational resources (OER) among pre- and in-service teachers and the faculty who work in educator preparation programs. The module's purpose is to position teacher educators, teacher candidates and in-service teachers as empowered content creators. By explicitly teaching educators about content that has been licensed for re-use and informing them about their range of options for making their own works available to others, they will gain agency and can make inclusive and equity-minded decisions about curriculum content. The module provides instructional materials, resources, and activities about copyright, fair use, public domain, OER, and visual literacy to provide users with a framework for selecting, modifying, and developing curriculum materials.
The Teach the Earth Portal has hundreds of high school through higher ed geoscience educator shared content ranging from low stakes to high stakes undergraduate core level to graduate level resources. More recently, have also added virtual field experiences appropriate for core course to upper division field camp (in response to pandemic necessity for Summer 2020 Field Camp revisioning). Many of the contributions are from members or partners with the National Association for Geoscience Teachers. There is an ongoing review process by professional peers to vet content submitted / aggregated into this portal during the past several decades.

Public speaking requires an audience to hear. Otherwise, it’s private speaking, and anyone overhearing you might wonder if you’ve lost your wits. What makes public speaking truly effective is when the audience hears and listens. You might think the two are synonymous. But they aren't, as you will soon understand. In a classic listening text, Adler notes, “How utterly amazing is the general assumption that the ability to listen well is a natural gift for which no training is required.” Since listening requires great effort, this chapter offers the skills needed to listen effectively.Developing your listening skills can have applications throughout your educational, personal, and professional lives.In this unit you will:1. Read about your role as a listener2. Reflect on sound expert Julian Treasure's explanations on listening. 3. Complete a personal listening inventory and discuss your findings.
