Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).

Teaching and learning looks blended in this classroom. By that, I mean that during the introduction of the topic, the teacher is really lecturing and the whole class is taking notes. During this time the instructor will ask students for feedback and questions. Use of the powerpoint will enhance the lecture by using pictures on each slide to illustrate the terminology.

This contains a non-fiction unit mapped out for a blended course. This course would work great with the blended learning model because it has a strong "brick and mortar" connection. About 1/2 of the lessons are completed on the computer and the other half are completed on the computer.
