Ci si è arresi a pensare che sia un dato di natura. In alternativa si dà la colpa alla crisi. Ma si tratta di un'impostura. Certo, la crisi ha accentuato la divaricazione tra chi aveva già molto e chi aveva appena a sufficienza. Ma questa polarizzazione patrimoniale, che ha cominciato ad allargarsi negli anni 80 per diventare infine il baratro attuale, è una causa ancor prima che un effetto della crisi. L'evento si terrà sabato 23 maggio, tra due giorni, da mattina a sera al Teatro Verdi di Pisa. LA GRANDE CONVERGENZA. LE DUE ITALIE. "PREFERIREI DI NO". EXIT STRATEGY.

Below, a snapshot of Gordon’s favorite lessons and how he chooses to wrap them into his units. Earth’s Dynamic Atmosphere Introduction to Earth and Space System – The Earth as a System How simple ideas lead to scientific discovery This is a lesson I use with my Earth and Space Science class at the first of the school year to help engage the students and encourage them to ask the questions, which they may think are too silly to ask. A guide to the energy of the Earth Understanding that the Earth as a system is one of the most important concepts that students of Earth and Space science need to understand.

Some study that I used to know: What do you remember from high school?

Some study that I used to know: What do you remember from high school?

I'd welcome encouragement, feedback and questions from others trying it out. ~~~An idea for an extension project:Goyte's song, "Somebody I used to Know" has been covered and parodied by several other artists. For example, Walk of the Earth, created their one-cut video showing the 5 band members playing the whole song on one guitar. Then Key of Awesome made a popular parody of WOTE's video.Songs are often more memorable than spoken language. Parodies can be a useful way of tying something new to something already familiar, making it more memorable.
