Does PE really develop Team Work?  We seem at times to be always justifying Physical Education’s place within a school’s curriculum. With such a focus on numerical outcomes, learning ‘in’, ‘through’ and ‘about’ movement just doesn’t seem to carry much weight at the moment. As if a holistic view of education in school might be such a terrible thing. So in response to budget cuts and narrowing curriculums we start to shout loudly about the other things PE bring to the education party. Twitter SmarterEveryDay Loading... Working...

Can you solve the prisoner hat riddle? - Alex Gendler The ‘prisoners and hats puzzle’ is a classic logic problem with many variants, some of which are described and summarized here. Like other puzzles where each player has information about the other players but not about themselves, they rely on inductive logic and the hierarchy of beliefs to figure out the other players’ thought processes to deduce the missing information. Just remember – if you try to stump other people with this kind of puzzle, make sure you have the right answer yourself.

COACH'S CLIPBOARD: How to Teach Young Children to Throw a Baseball Teaching Young Children How to Throw # of steps - 4 Teaching Time - 2 minutes Keywords: Toothpick, Ball, Wall, Broken, Roof, Loose Five psychological findings every history teacher should know This text is somewhere between what I planned to say and what I did say during my session at the Historical Association’s annual conference in Bristol yesterday, with a few reflections in italics. I’m going to start with a couple of stories from the pillar of the local free press: Hackney Today.

23 Weeks 6 Days When Kelley Benham and her husband Tom French finally got pregnant, after many attempts and a good deal of technological help, everything was perfect. Until it wasn't. Their story raises questions that, until recently, no parent had to face… and that are still nearly impossible to answer. This hour, we spend the entire episode on the story of Kelley and Tom, whose daughter was born at 23 weeks and 6 days, roughly halfway to full term. Their story contains an entire universe of questions about the lines between life and death, reflex and will, and the confusing tug of war between two basic moral touchstones: doing no harm...and doing everything in our power to help. Why can't we trust what we see? Witnesses to a "murder" were tested on their powers of recollection The human memory can be impressive, but it is equally prone to letting us down. Now groundbreaking research has revealed the extent of just how fragile it can be - and how to use it better. You're in the pub and trouble starts. There is shouting, someone is stabbed, they die. It happened right in front of your eyes and the police want to speak to you.

How to Teach Kids to Throw a Baseball Learning how to throw the ball correctly is the most basic of baseball skills. Proper throwing technique can add distance and power to throws and help avoid injury as a child’s arm grows and develops.

Your School Shapes How You Think About Inequality : NPR Ed Ask yourself this question: Were you aware of inequality growing up? Your answer may depend in part on where you went to high school. Students at racially diverse schools, particularly black and Hispanic students, are more tuned in to injustice than students going to school mostly with kids that look like them. That's one of the main threads of a new book by Carla Shedd, an assistant professor of sociology and African-American studies at Columbia University. In Unequal City: Race, Schools, and Perceptions of Injustice, Shedd goes straight to the source: the students at four Chicago public high schools.
