The thinking frames approach CPD Introduction There are 5 key sections to the Thinking Frames Approach; Setting the Question, Brainwave, See, Think/Sequence, Paragraph. The Approach is a sequence of teaching and learning interactions that encourage and scaffold the sequence of thinking skills and literacy skills that children need to form their own scientific explanations. Classroom based action research has demonstrated that the Thinking Frames Approach improves children's confidence and can significantly raise their level of achievement in Science.

Telomerase Enzyme Anti Aging Supplement - Reneuve Much of the research conducted to date has led scientists to discover that one of the keys to slowing down again and rebuilding cells is the enzyme known as telomerase. The role of telomerase appears to be manipulating the life of the cell by presiding over the mechanism that controls how long the cell lives. Some cancer researchers believe that the creation of a targeted telomerase inhibitor may actually be able to stop a cancer cell's ability to divide--thus stopping the spread of cancer. Despite the fact there is continuous research going on in the field of anti-aging, there has yet to be a consensus on the actual cause of cellular deterioration that account for the aging process. Once of the most confounding issues faced by researchers is the fact that the aging process is not predictable or uniform across all of humanity. That is, until now: So now you know why Telomerance™ Plus is such a paradigm-shifting product. "But is it easy to use?" Yes! “Who Discovered Telomerance™ Plus?”

Imaging Traumatic Brain Injury October 2011 Imaging Traumatic Brain Injury Researchers Seek Objective Measures of Elusive Problem By David Yeager Radiology Today Vol. 12 No. 10 P. 30 Military personnel are disproportionately affected, so the U.S. Department of Defense created an institute to learn more about TBI. Since ancient times, the dilemma of correlating symptoms with causes has bedeviled medical practitioners. In many ways, this challenge has come to define what many have called the signature wound of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars: traumatic brain injury (TBI). Because TBI occurs inside the body, medical imaging has been invaluable for detecting and diagnosing severe and moderate cases, but mild TBI has proven to be much trickier to pin down. “A lot of these guys can’t pick out a box of laundry detergent in the store, anymore,” says Gerard Riedy, MD, PhD, the chief of neuroimaging at the National Intrepid Center of Excellence (NICoE). The U.S. Riedy seeks to develop an objective measure for TBI. Where To?

Telomerase Tribolium castaneum telomerase catalytic subunit, TERT, bound to putative RNA template and telomeric DNA (PDB 3KYL) The existence of a compensatory mechanism for telomere shortening was first predicted by Soviet or Russian biologist Alexey Olovnikov in 1973,[2] who also suggested the telomere hypothesis of aging and the telomere's connections to cancer. Telomerase was discovered by Carol W. Greider and Elizabeth Blackburn in 1984 in the ciliate Tetrahymena.[3] Together with Jack W. Szostak, Greider and Blackburn were awarded the 2009 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for their discovery.[4] The role of telomeres and telomerase in cell aging and cancer was established by scientists at biotechnology company Geron with the cloning of the RNA and catalytic components of human telomerase [5] and the development of a PCR- based assay for telomerase activity called the TRAP assay allowing for a survey of telomerase activity in multiple types of cancer.[6] Structure[edit] Function[edit] E.

6 ways to teach like an artist Note from 11-8-2013: I wrote this post at the end of summer. I've been developing the idea both in writing and by trying to live it out. After three months of that, I wrote a related article here: Five Benefits of Teaching Like an Artist “I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. "I am an artist.... -Emile Zola We've probably all seen the websites and books that encourage us to teach like different things--pirates, rockstars, champions. I like the idea of teaching like an artist, though, because it allows for passion, personality and maybe even some insanity. Artists dream and bring the dreams to life. It's fun to hang out with artists. Our students would have a great time hanging out with people like that day after day. To me, art is love expressed freely. Almost everyone falls in love with another person. School needs more of these people! I could go on, but for now, here's the list: 6 Ways to Teach Like an Artist 1) Think of a new way. 2) Share your work. 5) Risk failure.

METH.ORG This Can't Be Happening : Krulwich Wonders... OK, if you've got nothing else to do for one minute, let me mess with your head. Below, you will see two circles composed of parallelograms. There's a dot in the middle of the image. B. Weird, no? The circles seem to rotate. (Of course, they don't really rotate; if you focus on a single parallelogram, you can move your head in and out all day and that sucker won't move at all.) Something curious is going on. So I went to see an eye doctor (technically, he's a "visual science" professor, Ben Backus, at the State University of New York's College of Optometry) who agreed to explain to me why the circles seem to move. Yes, he said, what you are seeing is a lie ("illusion" is the polite word) but don't blame your lying eyes. Tricking Your Brain "We don't see motion directly," he told me. Here's how. There are cells in your brain that specialize in motion detection. Put the portholes together, you can see the world. You can do this yourself. Below you will find an expanding circle. Now click.

The Neuroscience Of Learning: 41 Terms Every Teacher Should Know - TeachThought The Neuroscience Of Learning: 41 Terms Every Teacher Should Know by Judy Willis M.D., M.Ed., As education continues to evolve, adding in new trends, technologies, standards, and 21st century thinking habits, there is one constant that doesn’t change. The human brain. But neuroscience isn’t exactly accessible to most educators, rarely published, and when it is, it’s often full of odd phrasing and intimidating jargon. As for the jargon, Judy Willis, teacher, neuroscientist, and consultant has put together an A-Z glossary of relevant neuroscience terms for teachers and administrators to help clarify the jargon. The best approach with a list like this is to bookmark and share the page, and comeback to it intermittently.
