Video made for my BSU students Fall 2019, to introduce them to the app Hypothesis which we'll be using in all my online and in-person classes.
This zipped folder contains 28 Power Point files that correspond to each of the chapters in the OpenStax Anatomy and Physiology textbook. These are meant to provide a starting point for presentation files related to an Anatomy and Physiology course. The design should be easily modified using the “design” tab in Microsoft Power Point. The end user should be able to quickly choose a template/color scheme that works for them. Additionally, the end user may want to add or remove text from each power point slide. This can easily be accomplished by simply editing the document. Most of the images used in the creation of these Power Points are taken directly from the OpenStax Anatomy and Physiology textbook. Supplemental images pulled from elsewhere include a small textbox with a link to the original work and the CC license terms.
Minneapolis College, the most selected higher education destination of students from all Minneapolis Public High Schools, is located downtown, nestled between the hustle of Hennepin Avenue and the green spaces of Loring Park. As a part of the Minnesota State system of colleges and universities, Minneapolis College most serves those students who are least likely to go to college. With three-quarters of the student body composed of those underrepresented in higher education, the hallways are filled with recent immigrants, those seeking to learn English, members of communities with the highest unemployment and incarceration rates in the state, veterans, those of low socioeconomic status, seekers of diversity, and those who wish to serve them. Collected here are their stories, stories of overcoming, coming up, perseverance, pride, and power in the face of depressed opportunity and systemic oppression.

Single Variable Calculus: An Introduction to Integration is a free and open textbook and is a great introduction to integration for students who have already taken courses in differential calculus. The book explains Calculus II concepts adequately, comprehensively, and concisely, and its topics are reflective of the content areas in other published Calculus textbooks. Problems in the textbook do not only test computational skills, but are also applicable and related to real-life problems and areas that students are interested in. The text gives an adequate picture of Calculus II – Integral Calculus and prepares students for other disciplines like Engineering and Physics, as well as higher-level Mathematics courses.
Why Writing Works: Disciplinary Approaches to Composing Texts is an open-access, online textbook resource for college writing. It is written for an audience of second-year college students with a focus on writing in the disciplines.
The goal of this exercise is to leverage the interdependent between writing and thinking and, ultimately, to show your students how writing is, in fact, thinking. More precisely, the goal is for students to create their own, original and arguable thought in the form of a topic sentence. Coming up with your own, arguable thought is hard, and often we expect such thoughts to somehow spring magically from our brains. However, the easiest way to start this process is to start with what someone else has written.
This text is meant to be used in any first year College Composition class or as a general guide to college writing. The book focuses on writing as a process, not a product. The goal is to help students discover their own writing process, trying out different methods and strategies to find what works best for them.
