School Cafeteria Lunches Around the World Each day in the United States, over 32 million students eat lunches from their school cafeterias. The food consumed accounts for more than half of each students daily calorie intake – which therefore makes the school cafeteria that much more important in delivering healthy food and preventing child obesity. Unfortunately, if you grew up going to an American school and eating food in the cafeteria, it is unlikely you got the most delicious and healthy food. Yet, if you grew up going to a school in another country around the world, you may have had a different experience. SweetGreen is a chain of salad restaurants that run the SweetGreen in Schools program.

Goodnight Mister Tom: A book review Michelle Magorian’s novel Goodnight Mister Tom is a moving tale of an eight-year-old boy, William Beech who is evacuated from London’s Deptford area to go and live in a village called Little Weirwold shortly before the Second World War breaks out. With an abusive history, a weak, pale William arrives in Little Weirwold and is placed under the care of Tom Oakley, a healthy, middle-aged man famous in his close-knit village for being a recluse, just because he lives next to the local church in accordance to the specific instructions of William’s mother. Tom reluctantly agrees to take him in, in the name of ‘national duty’, neither of them considering how this small act of ‘national duty’ was going to change their lives forever. And thus began a journey of recovery and rediscovery for the two of them. This journey makes up the crux of the novel. His overbearing, extremely religious mother conditioned him that he was inherently bad and thus deserved to be punished.

But Beauty of Mathematics, a new video by Yann Pineill & Nicolas Lefaucheux, gives the mathematically challenged a peek into living equations. The animated triptych shows an equation on the left, its quantified schematics in the center, and its real world manifestation on the right. The video is like academic X-ray vision, but in reality, its inspiration was never math or science. It was beauty.

Get ready for your new class Welcome. The acrostic elements were generated by Year 6 right at the start of the year.

I want to look at how you can prepare your classroom for the new school year and still have some time for yourself. 12 Rules Of Great Teaching - 12 Rules Of Great Teaching by Terry Heick Recently, I’ve been thinking of the universal truths in teaching.

101 Conversation Starters (Also see How to Start a Conversation) Ice Breakers Where did you grow up?Do you have any pets? 20 Teen and Tween Conversation Starters How was your day? Fine. How was school? Good. How was your test? What are the correct rules of English grammar? Who says we can’t split infinitives? Michael Rundell, Editor-in-Chief of the Macmillan Dictionary, argues that we should expect linguistic rules to be bent and broken over time. He will be presenting on this topic at a British Council seminar, live-streamed from Cardiff on Tuesday, 3 June. Adult native speakers of a language rarely, if ever, make grammatical mistakes. This might sound like an outlandish claim, but the counter-argument — that bad grammar is endemic — rests on two common misunderstandings.
