Les enseignants ont kidnappé le débat sur le harcèlement à l'école Ceux qui dénoncent le clip de prévention produit par l'Éducation nationale, jugé «caricatural et méprisant», sont hors sujet. C'est l'histoire d'un rapt. Le 2 novembre, le ministère de l'Education nationale a rendu public le clip de prévention contre le harcèlement scolaire coproduit par Mélissa Theuriau. Presque aussitôt, des profs (et non pas «les profs», comme on l'a lu et entendu) ont manifesté leur mécontentement en dénonçant une «vidéo caricaturale et méprisante». Ils ont surtout, à gros coups de communiqués rageurs publiés par des syndicats pourtant souvent désaccordés, réussi à détourner les projecteurs du sujet principal (la souffrance des enfants harcelés) pour les braquer vers leur propre cause: le supplice enduré par des enseignants se sentant stigmatisés par une vidéo d'une minute qui ne s'adresse même pas à eux. C'est le premier problème de cette réaction. Allégorie Ce que semblent avoir oublié les profs qui s’insurgent contre ce spot, c’est son caractère allégorique.

A few months ago, my four year-old son went to a classmate's birthday. The party was superhero-themed and the loot bags were packed with cute little superhero trinkets, including temporary tattoos. One little girl, let's call her Izzy, put hers on immediately. "LOOK," Izzy yelled, running up to everyone in turn. The other children and parents in attendance oohed and ahed over her forearm. Later, as we parents were watching our cake-smeared kids run around in a sugar-induced frenzy, one of the other mothers turned to me and said, "Isn't it funny that [your son] loves My Little Pony so much? Not really knowing how to answer, I said, "I don't think it's funny. "Oh, sure," she said. I've been thinking a lot about this episode, along with all the other weird remarks people have made about my kid's love for all things Rainbow Dash. Little girls are, for the most part, taught that women can be anything. We see the devaluation of femininity play out in tons of different ways.

Bon, une fois n’est pas coutume, cet article-là, je l’écris surtout avec mes tripes (et en le démarrant je ne sais pas exactement où je vais avec). D’ailleurs ça introduit bien le sujet. D’habitude justement, je rédige mes articles un peu comme des dissertations. Avec un plan (construit à partir d’une liste d’idées) dans la tête, des parties, des sous-partes, des transitions, une intro, une conclusion. Il faut dire que des disserts et des commentaires, comme plein de gens, j’en ai fait depuis mes 15 ans jusqu’à la fin de ma licence. C’est devenu naturel chez moi d’écrire comme ça. D’ailleurs, j’ai souvent été considéré comme un intello, dans ma scolarité. Évidemment, le côté « intello » n’aide pas pour éviter le harcèlement, la mise à l’écart et l’effet plante verte. Et pourtant, au collège comme au lycée, je ne faisais pas réellement partie des bons élèves. C’était une erreur, parce que j’ai (évidemment) continué à ramer dans les matières scientifiques.

Why the Phi do all these planetary rotation ratios add to Fibonacci numbers? | Tallbloke's Talkshop Sciency looking diagram we don’t know the meaning of because the site is in Chinese I’m confident that one day in the not too distant future we’ll look back at this post and wonder why we couldn’t see the obvious. But right now this is a total mystery. Oldbrew and I have been looking at the axial rotation ratios between neighbouring planets and planet pairs, with surprising results. Right upfront, we need to point out that these ratios between rotation rates are dimensionless, as are the Fibonacci numbers they relate to. So this is not mere ‘numerology’, or playing with numbers based on a particular measurement scheme. So here is the mystery; all of the rotation rates of the planet pairs in the solar system listed below the break are in ratios where the numbers on each side of the ratio add to a number in the Fibonacci sequence. The Fibonacci sequence: 1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,89,144,233 Here are the primary pairs of neighbouring planets. . . . Like this: Like Loading...

Stories Stories We hosted our first PE 9 Health & Careers Expo last week and the event was a huge success! Students posed various health and career questions (to cover the Health and Career 9 curriculum) and we used inquiry to dig deeper. The process was most important and students learned various skills along the way, but the products ended up being very impressive. Students could speak to their questions without reading notes and it was evident their knowledge had increased. I think this shows the importance of voice and choice. My colleague and I took a risk and it ended up paying off. We had an interview group who took video and picture evidence and spoke with attendees and a logistics crew that helped to plan out the entire event.

A STEP away from the lesson plan. – drowningintheshallow A STEP away from the lesson plan. – drowningintheshallow For the first part of my career I spent most of my time honing my knowledge and skills to become more competent in my job as a Teacher of PE. The focus of that competency was efficiency; routines, rules, instruction, subject knowledge and lesson plans. The PE classroom is a dynamic and chaotic place, impacted on by the forever changing environment of resources, weather, facilities and the children themselves. The ability to think on one’s feet and modify what your pupils are doing, based on what you observe, is a key skill to being an effective PE Teacher. David Court suggests Throwing away the plan if perhaps if that is what is needed. Sometimes though throwing out the plan isn’t the best option, but a modification to the lesson plan is. I have found an easy way to change a task or activity within a PE lesson is to use the STEP framework: STEP is an easy framework to use when in the moment of teaching to modify the task to ensure it is at the right level for your pupils.

Physical Education

The goals, policy, principles and procedures of Alberta Education's Daily Physical Activity Initiative. The goal of Daily Physical Activity (DPA) is to increase students' physical activity levels. DPA is based on the belief that healthy students are better able to learn and that school communities provide supportive environments for students to develop positive habits needed for a healthy, active lifestyle. Alberta Education is committed to helping students develop positive daily physical activity habits and recognizes the contribution of teachers, schools and school authorities in implementing the Daily Physical Activity initiative. Policy School authorities shall ensure that all students in grades 1 to 9 are physically active for a minimum of 30 minutes daily through activities that are organized by the school. Guiding Principles Procedures School authorities have the flexibility to use instructional and/or non-instructional hours to implement DPA.

On June 26 Canada released the Canadian 24 Hour Movement Guidelines for Children and Youth. These guidelines call for at least 60 minutes per day of moderate to vigorous physical activity, no more than two hours a day of recreational screen time, limited sitting for extended periods and at least 9-11 hours of sleep per night for children 5-13 years, and 8-10 hours for those aged 14-17 years. They were developed by the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology, the Conference Board of Canada, HALO-CHEO, ParticipACTION and the Public Health Agency of Canada, with input from research experts and stakeholders across Canada and around the world. The process was informed by 9 peer-reviewed publications, all available for free via the journal of Applied Physiology, Nutrition and Metabolism.

The circadian rhythm, or circadian clock, is an internal mechanism that drives the 24-hour cycles that tell our bodies when to sleep, wake and eat — and now, new research has found that bacteria living within the gut also have a clock. "We are the directors of that clock, much like the sun directs our own circadian rhythms," said Jiffin Paulose, UK post-doctoral scholar and co-author of the study in PLOS ONE. Paulose and Professor and Chair of the Department of Biology Vincent Cassone found that a certain class of bacteria found in the human gut, Enterobacter aerogenes, expresses circadian patterns because of its sensitivity to melatonin, the hormone produced at night and stimulating sleep. While melatonin is made by the pineal gland, a small gland in the brain, it is also present throughout the gastrointestinal (GI) system. In addition, many foods contain melatonin. The GI system's circadian clock is coordinated to both light and the timing of eating. More information: Jiffin K. Gut bacteria have own circadian clock
Acciaroli (Italy) (AFP) - Some of the secrets of an Italian village that has long fascinated scientists because of its high number of active centenarians are set to be revealed this weekend. Scientists have spent the last six months looking into why residents of Acciaroli and nearby tiny communities enjoy such extraordinary longevity -- while also seeming to be largely immune from dementia, heart disease and other chronic conditions associated with ageing in most of the Western world. Scientists from Rome's Sapienza University and the San Diego School of Medicine will unveil their findings at a conference in the village on Sunday. Acciaroli is part of the Cilento coast, a largely industry-free area of outstanding natural beauty that now has national park protected status. It was in the Cilento that the late US nutritionist Ancel Keys first established convincing evidence of the health benefits of a Mediterranean diet based on olive oil and rich in fresh fruit, vegetables and fish.

This Company Maps Your Genetics to Tell You How You Can Get Stronger In Brief Genomics is entering the world of sports, and a start up is planning to use it to optimize athletic training and performance. Mapping your Genes When we think of working out and improving our bodies, we often think of various diets and stretches and so on—we rarely think of our genes. Now, a new movement anchored on genomics is looking to bring athletic performance down to the level of DNA. One company wants to go beyond simply relying on the traditional combination of nutrition and exercise to optimize one’s performance. Athletigen is now studying how profiling an athlete—studying muscle tissue, energy, metabolism, and even basic psychology—can potentially create the most ideal food and exercise regimen to boost their performance. The start up, based in Nova Scotia, is working in partnership with Affymetrix, a San Diego based genotyping microarray company, that will help Athletigen sequence nearly 850,000 genetic variants linked to athletic performance.
