Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
In this TV411 activity, students are encouraged to improve their time management by watching a video segment of a busy student making a schedule. Students make their own schedules and also learn to calculate elapsed time in both digital and analog formats.
Time Management QuickTime Video

She is having difficulty balancing a variety of activities, and her homework and chores are suffering from it. Her mother insists that she improve her time management by building a schedule. You will watch a video segment in which Ruby works out a schedule and enters it into a planner. As you watch the video, figure out how your schedule would look if you mapped it onto the same planner."
