The Human Body: What It Is and How It Works, in Vibrant Vintage Illustrations circa 1959

The Human Body: What It Is and How It Works, in Vibrant Vintage Illustrations circa 1959
by Maria Popova “Two hearts could provide enough energy to drive a truck around the world in two years.” Much of our inquiry into what makes us human focuses on understanding consciousness, yet we spend the whole of our lives in our physical bodies. As a lover of anatomical art and vintage science illustration, I was instantly enamored with The Human Body: What It Is And How It Works — a stunning vintage anatomy book, depicting and explaining in more than 200 vibrant mid-century illustrations the inner workings of the body. Originally published in 1959, this colorful gem was inspired by German artist and researcher Fritz Kahn, who in his 1926 classic Man as Industrial Palace described the human body as “the highest performance machine in the world” and used industrial metaphors to illustrate its remarkable capacities. A gorgeous four-page centerfold illustrates full-body views of the various systems — muscles, blood vessels, nerves, digestive organs, and the gastrointestinal tract.

La Educación Primaria y la Educación Física en el nuevo marco legislativo de la LOMCE 1. Introducción A lo largo de los años el Sistema Educativo Español ha ido variando continuamente fruto de los continuos cambios en las políticas educativas que han derivado en nuevas leyes que regulan la educación en España. La publicación de la Ley Orgánica 8/2013, de 9 de diciembre, para la mejora de la calidad educativa, supone un nuevo rumbo en el panorama educativo español. Sigue siendo un cambio más, uno sumado a otros tantos como el que se produjo en 1970 a través de la Ley General de Educación de Villar Palasí, la Ley Orgánica General del Sistema Educativo Español en 1990 o la Ley Orgánica de Educación de 2006, entre otras. Sin duda alguna este diseño y desarrollo de leyes educativas a lo largo de estas décadas significan que la educación está cambiando y que el Estado español trata de responder a esas necesidades y exigencias formativas que las españolas y los españoles demandan. 2. Por otro lado, ¿cómo afectan estas medidas en la Educación Primaria? 3. Tabla de las áreas 4. 4.1.

DISLEXIA: INVESTIGACIÓN Y TRABAJO: LATERALIDAD CRUZADA ¿QUÉ ES LA LATERALIDAD CRUZADA? Podemos definir la lateralidad como la consecuencia de la distribución de funciones que se establece entre los dos hemisferios cerebrales. De dicha distribución depende la utilización preferente de un lado o el otro del cuerpo (derecho o izquierdo) para ejecutar determinadas respuestas o acciones. La lateralidad es una función compleja que se deriva de la organización binaria de nuestro Sistema Nervioso. De hecho, gran parte de nuestro cuerpo se articula de forma doble: dos ojos, dos oídos, dos orejas, dos pulmones, dos riñones, etc... Hasta los 4 ó 5 años no tiene demasiada importancia aprender cuál es la derecha y cuál es la izquierda. Normalmente se diferencian cuatro tipos: Dominancia Manual: Preferencia o mayor facilidad para utilizar una de las manos (derecha o izquierda) para ejecutar acciones como coger objetos o escribir.

Educación Física AQUÍ y AHORA METODA MONTESSORI La inceputul anilor 1900, dr. Maria Montessori a elaborat aceasta metoda educationala, pe baza observatiilor sale stiintifice asupra comportamentului copiilor. Avand cunostinte solide in materie de pedagogie, antropologie si psihiatrie, ea a dezvoltat ideea ca fiecare copil se naste cu un potential unic ce trebuie valorificat, copilul nefiind doar un “vas gol” care asteapta sa fie umplut. Modelului pedagogic Montessori pune copilul in centru. Acest sistem atribuie copiilor anumite responsabilitati si ii ajuta sa isi dezvolte stilul personal de acumulare a cunostintelor, timp in care educatorii actioneaza ca un ghid care le incurajeaza si le faciliteaza actiunile. Educatorul este, desigur, o parte foarte importanta a acestui proces. Educatorii Montessori sunt pregatiti professional pentru aceasta metoda si utilizeaza materiale Montessori special create.
