What are some key important facts about the Nile River?
The Nile river is a key piece of physical geography that made huge impact on the area around it. The Nile is the longest river in the world and flow from south to north unlike most rivers. This river is full of highly fertile mud that provides nutrients for farmers of ancient Egypt to provide ample crops and areas to cultivate. The river also allows easy travel up and down due to wind blowing south and the water current flowing north. Ships can use the current to travel north upstream of the river and also use their sales to travel downstream. Hope these facts about the Nile River are useful!
What are the stages of Grief?
Grief is apart of everyone's life at one point in time. Whether it is a breakup, lose of a loved one, or other life altering events. The typical cycle, or stages, of Grief are as follows. 1: Denial: One of the first emotional responses to an event is for a person to reject or act as if the event did not or could not happen. This can be seen as someone thinking "There is no way this is happening" as their response to some major event like a hearing the news of a close loved one passing away. 2: Anger: Another coping mechanism for dealing with the emotional overflow with anger . This can be seen as tantrums, yelling, directing anger towards others and objects, and much more. This is apart of the natural way the body attempts to relieve emotions. 3: Bargaining: This stage focuses on trying to find solutions to the event through making "deals" or "commitments": in exchange to prevent or alter the event. A great example of this is someone who was diagnosed with a illness to ask god to heal them in exchange for changing bad habits or other things in their life like quitting smoking. 4: Depression: The lose of emotions can result in a depressive stage that can make someone feel hopeless on their situation and mute to everything around them. They lose interest in activities and the things that brought them joy. An example is a person who did not get accepted to a university giving up on college and spend days upset and alone in their room. 5: Acceptance: This stage is moving past the grief of the event that has transpired. This can be understanding and being at a peace of mind with the outcome of the situation. The individual does not need to be fully over and happy with the ending of the event but able to accept what has happened and continue with their lives. The grief cycle is something that not all individuals go through at the same pace or all the stages however is a basic cycle that can define many individual's timeslots and stages when experiencing grief. Hope this helps!
What are ways to make your class more engaged in the content?
One way to help students become more engaged and to participate more in classroom activities and discussions is to find ways to connect the content of the class around the student's backgrounds and interests. Examples of this are wording questions and making projects based on the interests or cultural backgrounds of students. Including prompts such as sports or real world related questions can inspire great conversations in the classroom discussions. Adding and intertwining local areas or events into class gives content more meaning and can excel the process of gaining the students trust as an educator. I hope this helps!
