12:00 AM 
Making Meaning In Literature: A Workshop for Teachers, Grades 6-8  "Workshop 6. Literature, Art, and Other Disciplines"  In this program, teachers explore various ways in which students can use the fine arts to express their impressions of a text, and why this kind of activity should be encouraged to make sure that every voice in the classroom is heard. The group also looks at ways to expand meaning by interweaving literature with social studies and other disciplines, and the value of doing so. [P]

1:00 AM 
Private Universe Project In Mathematics  "Following Children's Ideas In Mathematics"  An unprecedented long-term study conducted by Rutgers University followed the development of mathematical thinking in a randomly selected group of students for 12 years - from 1st grade through high school - with surprising results. In an overview of the study, we look at some of the conditions that made their math achievement possible. [P]

2:00 AM 
Science In Focus: Force and Motion  "Bend and Stretch"  We all expect a spring to stretch or compress when a force is applied, but forces can even deform solid objects like the floor or the top of a table. In this workshop, students in a high school classroom explore ideas about tension and normal force. By applying a force to a spring and measuring the distance the spring is stretched, the students calculate the force constant or stretchiness of the spring. Lecture demonstrations using student volunteers help to illustrate that even rigid objects bend when a force is applied. [G]

3:00 AM 
Teaching Channel Presents  "Injury-Based Teaching"  Inquiry-based Teaching: A look inside New York's Urban Academy Laboratory High School where two teachers lead student driven, student centered classes. Watch animated discussions unfold when students are challenged to analyze difficult texts and there are no right or wrong answers. [P]

4:00 AM 
Social Studies In Action: A Methodology Workshop, K-5  "Workshop 3. Exploring Unity and Diversity"  Who do we teach? Because themes of unity and diversity surface within both academic content and classroom climate, this session focuses on strategies for teaching provocative issues in social studies as well as methods of addressing a diversity of learners. The onscreen teachers examine national documents for themes of unity and diversity, explore Howard Gardner. [P]

5:00 AM 
Crafting at the Spotted Canary  "Things That Make You Beautiful"  There are moments in life when you want to be beautiful; your wedding day is one of those moments. Handcrafting elements for your special day will make you feel more beautiful. [P]

Crafting at the Spotted Canary  "Things That Hang in the Window"  There is nothing like a warm summer day, when the windows are open and the sheers are gracefully moving with the wind. Windows are an interesting part of the home that are decorated with textiles, but can also be adorned with photos, crystals and banners. [P]
