MIT compiled all their open courseware material that is appropriate for use by high school teachers of college-bound students at this site. For teachers the goal is to make it easy for you to find resources you can use to inspire your students. MIT OpenCourseware has selected a range of materials to help you: (1) Show science demonstrations by MIT faculty in your classroom. (2) Provide alternate explanations to reinforce key concepts. (3) Guide students to additional homework problems and exam examples. (4) Add to your knowledge. You can use this site to help your students: Understand concepts by watching video demonstrations or study for AP exams. Furthermore they can sample the kind of work they'll be doing in college.

"I am a teacher at 107th elementary school in LAUSD, an inner-city school. Everything good that is given to us - is then taken away. The CADRE has brought art, music, dance, drama and light to a very difficult academic community. The Cadre is the only wonderful experience happening at 107th street school - this program needs to be continually funded. As well as encouraging students to find new areas of expertise, the teachers participate and learn about programs new to them as well. The Kathryn Dunham Dance Company was totally inspiring and intriguing as I got a taste of the dance the students would learn. The Marchall Dance Company was the only HOLIDAY PROGRAM my 1st graders received this year - and it was a dandy! Just Great! Samuel, a 1st grader in my class, was called to join in the welcoming dance and my whole class was proud of him and he was elated. Please, continue the funding for the CADRE. Thank you.
