Attached is the instructor powerpoint and guide. The idea is that the individual training teachers can pick these resources up and begin training. Much of what you will find are Norfolk Public Schools related, but resources can be revised to reflect your district. Canvas Level One Instructional Video - https://youtu.be/gMxdVNKxjQU?list=PLOS5Pas2o8jQRJwar9j0Q7gT_qdycrimX

This course looks at all forms that energy exists. It explains how energy is used in: transport, agriculture, industry, commerce and households. It describes how energy is stored using storage systems such as: battery, flywheels, compressed air, chemical energy systems and pumped storage. This course explains the problem of depletion of energy resources. It describes the environmental damage associated with the use of fossil fuels, acid rains, dangers posed by leaded fuels, oil spills, gas leaks and explosions, water pollution caused by poorly managed coal mines, and air pollution. It describes the environmental damage associated with the use of fuelwood, uranium, hydro-power plants and wind. It also explains possible solutions to the energy-related problems.

This is an activity that demonstrates how batteries work using simple household materials. Learners use a pickle, aluminum foil and a pencil to create an electrical circuit that powers a buzzer. Most common batteries--such as car batteries and the batteries inside a flashlight--work on the same principle that the pickle battery works on: two metals suspended in an ion-rich liquid or paste separate an electric charge, creating an electrical current around a circuit. In this activity, the pickle provides the ion-rich liquid - pickles contain salt water, which is rich in ions.

This guide was created for a district trainer to pick up and provide training on integrating Zoom functions into a synchronous lesson. This guide has experienced multiple iterations and will continue to do so as trainers continue providing feedback. The guide is specifically for Norfolk Public Schools but can be revised to represent your district. This guide walks the trainer through the process of applying skills learned in Zoom Level One and Two. The trainer also introduces Moore's Framework for online engagement and applies this theoretical approach the training.

 High School students are online all the time developing appropriate and inappropriate relationships. Because of their online experiences, they may feel well-equipped to recognize a bad situation and know how to get out of it. However, many times teenagers are drawn into a seemingly harmless conversation that will lead them to a dangerous offline encounter that they cannot escape.This lesson will provide strategies to teens to help them identify relationships that are inappropriate, how to avoid them, and how to get out of those relationships as soon as possible.
