Pictures in Space

A pair of European space telescopes have captured the aftershock of a devastating supernova —a snapshot in time of a star's explosive death. The new supernova photo combines views by the European Space Agency's infrared Herschel Space Observatory and X-ray XMM-Newton X-ray space telescope to reveal W44, the remnant of an exploded star about 10,000 light-years from Earth. The supernova remnant W44 is shown by XMM-Newton at high (light blue) and low (dark blue) energy X-ray emission in this ESA image. "The supernova remnant is the result of a massive star that reached the end of its life and expelled its outer layers in a dramatic explosion," officials at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California, a U.S. partner in the Herschel mission, said in a statement. The pulsar, called PSR B1853+-1, shines in a brilliant light blue hue in the upper right of the new photo. The supernova remnant and pulsar glow an eerie blue in X-ray images from the XMM-Newton observatory.

Shock wave in space: A massive star plows through material between stars (photo). Shock wave in space: A massive star plows through material between stars (photo). I was wondering what to post for today; a short philosophical piece, a longer discussion of holidays and family, a pretty picture, or something quick and funny. Then the Universe delivered unto me a picture perfect present: Behold! Trust me, you want to see this bigger! That’s because it’s sitting in a dust cloud, dense opaque material that absorbs the light from the mighty star and diminishes it. Zeta Oph is blasting out a fierce wind of subatomic particles (think of it as a super-solar wind) that expands around the star. That curving wave is roughly four light years long: That’s 40 trillion kilometers! I love this shot; if it had been released just a week earlier, I would’ve included it in my list of the Best Pictures of the Year! This is one of my favorite objects of all time, so it was easy to decide to post it today. The Universe is simply amazing, and is the gift that keeps on giving.

Picture Stories for Adult ESL Health Literacy Created by Kate Singleton Fairfax County (Virginia) Public Schools The picture stories are: Designed to help ESOL instructors address topics that affect the health and well-being of their students. Useful for beginner and low-literacy students. Newcomers to the United States and adults with lower literacy tend to have the least awareness of and access to health care services, thereby running the risk of more serious and chronic health outcomes. Words are kept to a minimum in the stories to give just enough information to convey an idea without becoming too distracting for students with very low literacy. What groups of students are the picture stories suitable for? The stories "Emergency," "A Doctor's Appointment," and "Stressed Out" are suitable for most classes, as the topics are common and uncontroversial. How can the stories be used in class? The Language Experience Approach (LEA) is an effective way to use the picture stories with beginners. Suggested LEA procedure: The basic story: Picture Stories for Adult ESL Health Literacy

Teaching Tips 20 Teacher diaries We've talked before about the usefulness of learner diaries & now it's the turn of the teacher. A teaching diary is to help you reflect on what happens in your classroom, what you do & how you go about it & what the students do & how they go about it. You could write it every day about each of your classes or just about one group you have taught each week. Here are a few general guidelines you might want to follow: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.
