Seven Little Australians Study Booklet - A Literature Study for Years 5-7 In this teaching resource, students learn about all aspects of literature including themes, vocabulary, phrases, comparisons, characters and more. The booklet is broken into chapters to assist students to focus on key sections within the text. The booklet incorporates plenty of reading analysis, along with complementary writing exercises. About the text: Seven Little Australians describes the life of a family, in particular its seven children in early outback Australia. The setting is a house nicknamed ‘Misrule’ and ‘Yarrahappini’ the house of their grandparents.

Unit 20 Level 3 (Upper Intermediate- Advanced): Mixed conditionals Besides the four types of conditional sentences you already know (first, second, third and zero), there is a fifth type which is used when the time in the "if" clause is not the same as the time in the main clause. These are called “mixed conditionals”, as they combine two different types of conditional patterns. 1) Watch this video to learn how second and third conditionals can be used together by mixing and matching the “if” and main clauses, thus forming a mixed conditional. 2) Let’s check some of the most important facts about this type of conditionals here and here. Pay attention to these examples.

Google preps wave of machine learning apps High performance access to file storage Google is preparing to unleash a wave of apps that get intelligence from its mammoth machine learning models. The apps will all rely on the neural networks Google has been developing internally to allow its systems to automatically classify information that has traditionally been tough for computers to parse. This includes human speech or unlabeled images, said Jeffrey Dean a fellow in Google's Systems Infrastructure Group who helped create MapReduce and GFS, to the GigaOm Structure in San Francisco on Wednesday. "I've been working on a machine learning system for the last couple of years that is using biologically inspired neural networks," Dean said. "These kinds of models are very useful in a whole bunch of different domains."

Goals and Techniques for Teaching Grammar The goal of grammar instruction is to enable students to carry out their communication purposes. This goal has three implications: Students need overt instruction that connects grammar points with larger communication contexts.

Meet the algorithm that can learn “everything about anything” The most recent advances in artificial intelligence research are pretty staggering, thanks in part to the abundance of data available on the web. We’ve covered how deep learning is helping create self-teaching and highly accurate systems for tasks such as sentiment analysis and facial recognition, but there are also models that can solve geometry and algebra problems, predict whether a stack of dishes is likely to fall over and (from the team behind Google’s word2vec) understand entire paragraphs of text. (Hat tip to frequent commenter Oneasum for pointing out all these projects.) One of the more interesting projects is a system called LEVAN, which is short for Learn EVerything about ANything and was created by a group of researchers out of the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence and the University of Washington. One of them, Carlos Guestrin, is also co-founder and CEO of a data science startup called GraphLab.

The First Thanksgiving: Myth or Fact The First Thanksgiving. We all know the story, right? We heard it in school, when we were kids. We learned, in 1621, after a brutal winter, the Pilgrims were nice enough to invite their friends, the Indians, over to share in their great meal of thanksgiving, following a bountiful harvest. We dressed up as Pilgrims and Indians for plays and recreated the Thanksgiving feast in the classroom. We made Pilgrim hats, Indian headdresses, cornucopia, and Mayflower ships, all out of construction paper.
