Time Management [electronic resource]

Three strategies to help students make better use of their time are presented in this program. They include the development of a term calendar on which students list important academic "events," such as term-paper deadlines and exam dates. A weekly schedule allows students to assess available time and make the most of it. A daily "To-Do List" helps students avoid last-minute cramming for exams and other academic projects.

No Child Left Behind [electronic resource]: Case of City Springs

Originally titled The Battle of City Springs, this fascinating case study profiles City Springs Elementary-a Baltimore school nearly closed by the State of Maryland until it implemented a rigorous teaching method known as Direct Instruction. Filmed over an entire year, the film documents the progress made by City Springs students as they struggle to build reading and math skills-and their teachers struggle to make D.I. more than a theoretical concept. Although the year is filled with constant setbacks and challenges, including wearisome discipline problems and a demoralizing case of vandalism, the video culminates in statewide exam results that heavily favor City Springs' new strategy.
