ANTH 3135: Home The American Urban Experience: Anthropological Perspectives
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating

This course engages students in the diversity of American urban life and introduces various modes of analyzing socio-cultural scenes, communities, and urban institutions. In the first part of the course, we will lay the foundations for understanding urban processes and communities. We will examine the racial and ethnic diversity in cities and the ways people understand and cope with being in an environment filled with "strangers". We will develop an understanding of urban political economy and the effects of inequality and economic strain on urban life. In the second part of the course, we will focus on the effects of globalization, post-industrial decline, and post-modernism on cities. In this section, we will focus on the production and consumption of urban spaces. We will look at the ways American cities have developed and changed as well as the competing views and political contestations behind these transformations.

Applied Math in Introductory Chemistry
Only Sharing Permitted
CC BY-NC-ND
Rating

Students, particularly those who are non-science majors, often struggle with college-level science courses required for graduation due to the applied mathematics needed to successfully complete the course. This resource includes four activities on the topics of units and measurements, dimensional analysis, density, and gases. These topics were specifically designed to teach the mathematics embedded in these topics in a culturally responsive way. Throughout the activities, we incorporate these four elements of culturally relevant pedagogy (Ladson-Billings, 2009) in order to engage students in successfully solving basic mathematics in chemistry while promoting their interest in learning chemistry.

Artist’s Tools: Reverse-Engineering of Prototypes
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC
Rating

Outputting the digital blueprint into a final fast prototype is important, but inputting a hand-made sculpture into the computer is as important in the creative process. There are many high-tech electronic devices that can help the artist generate form from his/her sculpture quickly. This process is called “reverse engineering of prototypes.” Touch Probes (Contact Method) The concept of the touch probe involves a measuring tip attached by several limbs with rotational joints. The design of the joints and limbs determines the reach of the touch probe. The measuring tip of the touch probe is used to measure the exact coordinates on the surface of the scanned object.

Equality Archive
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating

Equality Archive is a reliable source for the history of sex and gender equality in the United States. It is a theater for history and social justice with the goal to provide a forum for curious people.

Information is power. Equality Archive provides open access to the information that can ripple to become a new wave of knowledge and action in the service of social good. We know feminism is intersectional: as you explore one entry, you will find connections–intersections–with others. You can follow issues, people, and history by browsing images, or you can search information by using the key words located in Equality Archive’s tag cloud.

Every entry is peer-reviewed, and each entry contains references, links to film, video, speeches, or music relevant to its topic. Every entry also connects with an opportunity to get involved—to volunteer or donate to an established organization already working toward a social good that must include empowered women. The archive contains unique assets—brief, accessible, fact-based, archival entries on a range of topics written by over 25 feminists who are professors, artists, and authors. And the archive is ongoing, it will continue to grow with more content, more information.

Heritage Language Programs: Arabic, Chinese, Creole, Spanish, Russian: 1038 and 2018 Courses
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating

Welcome to the Heritage Language Program at Brooklyn College!
The Department of Modern Languages and Literatures offers Heritage Language Programs in Arabic, Chinese, Haitian Creole, and Spanish. Our Heritage Language Programs consist of two-semester sequences of courses that prepare students to take content courses in the language. The Heritage Language Programs include beginning and intermediate courses for bilingual learners who have had little or no formal education in the language, but have a connection to the language through community and family ties. Our programs will expand the oral and written communication skills of heritage language learners through a project-based approach to learning.

These courses use the language students have grown-up listening to at home as the foundation for developing their proficiency in reading, writing, and speaking the home language. We know that the proficiency levels and experiences with the home language vary greatly among heritage speakers. In our Heritage Language Programs, heritage speakers of all levels (beginning, intermediate or advanced) can take courses that have been created specifically to respond to their unique needs and build upon the skill set of the heritage learner at different stages of development.

Heritage learners can both meet the Brooklyn College language requirement and continue to expand their knowledge of Arabic, Chinese, Haitian Creole, Russian and Spanish and further develop their communicative skills.

Impact of OER Material during COVID-19: Survey of Students Enrolled in City University of New York (CUNY) Kingsborough Community College
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating

AbstractWhat role did COVID-19 play in the students’ benefits and challenges of open educational resources (OER)? Motivated by decades of research in helping students to access and use course materials to improve their learning by offering substitutes to the highly priced and exponentially increasing costs of commercially printed textbooks, this paper takes another dive to understand students’ challenges and benefits of OERs during the pandemic. Based on an anonymous survey distributed to students enrolled in CUNY Kingsborough Community College (N=1,175 participants) during Fall 2020, the two top benefits reported were cost savings and access. Some challenges that are identified in open and closed ended questions are organization of the material to fit the course design of the faculty. It is important to note that students had difficulty with accessing also the OER material, unlike prior surveys, but they continue recommending OER material at similar rates as prior to the pandemic.
