This is a great, comprehensive, research-based guide for implementing Peer and Cross-age tutoring programs. The lists of key elements and reflection points can be referred to again and again as you prepare and implement a peer tutoring program. Really, this is a terrific resource for anyone interested in incorporating a peer tutoring model in their class, grade or school.
The Peer Tutoring Resource Center is a terrific repository for peer tutoring resources and supportive blog posts to help you successfully implement peer tutoring. This short article introduces you to the different peer tutoring models.
One of the best mediums through which students can model the human hand is clay. This video shows one artist doing just that. While the skills of this artists probably exceed those of the students, it gives a good idea of how to go about engaging in the process. I would recommend having students watching this video before starting to sculpt their own models.
Since there are so many muscles at play within the hand it is important to know how muscles contract in order to move the bones. This video does a great job explaining the physiology of muscle tissues. I think this video is great, but will only be useful if the viewer has some basic understanding of the anatomy of a muscle (actin, myosin, sarcomere, etc.). Read up on these concepts first and then watch this video.
If you are a visual learner then this hand video is for you. It does a wonderful job of describing the muscles and bones of the hand and how they work together to produce movement. I would strongly recommend viewing this video.
This is the coolest website I have ever seen! It uses 3D animations and other images to guide the viewer through all the different parts of the human hand. It shows bones, muscles, tendons, and ligaments all related to producing the finite movements. It is a great interface that makes for a wonderful reference.
