Students will observe dance movements depicted in a drawing and a painting. Partners will use simple lines to draw their partner's movements and paint dance costumes on the figures using various brushstrokes. Students will write a persuasive speech to the school superintendent explaining why they believe dance should be a regular part of the curriculum. They will then model dance movements for classmates in teams of four and recite their persuasive speech to the class.

Chemical Process Dynamics and Controls Textbook
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating

This course uses an open textbook University of Michigan Chemical Engineering Process Dynamics and Controls. The articles in the open textbook (wikibook) are all written by teams of 3-4 senior chemical engineering students, and are peer-reviewed by other members of the class. Using this approach, the faculty and Graduate Student Instructors (GSIs) teaching the course act as managing editors, selecting broad threads for the text and suggesting references. In contrast to other courses, the students take an active role in their education by selecting which material in their assigned section is most useful and decide on the presentation approach. Furthermore, students create example problems that they present in poster sessions during class to help the other students master the material.

French I (FRCH 121)
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating

In this course, you will learn the basics of French, including reading, writing, listening, and speaking. At the end of the quarter, you will know how to introduce yourself and volunteer basic information, and how to ask questions of others. You will also have some knowledge of French and Francophone cultures and protocols. This class is divided into four modules, which follow the chapters in the textbook. In each module, you will be asked to read, write, speak, and listen in French. The class also includes a quarter-long cultural immersion project, in which you will be asked to conduct research on specific aspects of a non-European Francophone country and report your findings to the rest of the class.

This course has been designed to meet the specific needs of community college students in the state of Washington. Nevertheless, it can be adapted for any class.

French 121 is designed to be used in a face-to-face setting, but it could easily be adapted for use in a hybrid course. If you wish to use it to teach online, you will need to make significant modifications.

Veterinary Epidemiology - General Concepts
Only Sharing Permitted
CC BY-NC-ND
Rating

Veterinary epidemiology is principally concerned with the study of disease within populations (although it may also be used for investigation of issues such as animal welfare and productivity). Put simply, it involves the investigation of patterns of disease within a population, in relation to which animals are affected, the spatial distribution (i.e. location) of affected animals, and the temporal distribution of affected animals (i.e. patterns of disease through time).
