Gender and Society: A Matter of Nature or Nurture? "Men have always been afraid that women could get along without them." --Margaret Mead In addition to age, gender is one of the universal dimensions on which status differences are based. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights Whereas recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world, Whereas disregard and contempt for human rights have resulted in barbarous acts which have outraged the conscience of mankind, and the advent of a world in which human beings shall enjoy freedom of speech and belief and freedom from fear and want has been proclaimed as the highest aspiration of the common people, Whereas it is essential, if man is not to be compelled to have recourse, as a last resort, to rebellion against tyranny and oppression, that human rights should be protected by the rule of law,

PDHPE Curriculum, NSW Department of Education and Communities The NSW Department of Education and Communities’ Literacy continuum K–10 identifies the literacy skills and understandings regarded as critical to literacy success. It maps how critical aspects develop through the years of schooling by describing key markers of expected student achievement. The Literacy continuum K–10 is for all teachers of all subjects from Kindergarten to Year 10. The Literacy continuum K–10 is a powerful tool which all teachers can use to strengthen their knowledge of literacy and so deliver a quality program with a strong literacy focus to enhance learning opportunities for their students. In conjunction with the NSW syllabuses, the continuum assists teachers to integrate literacy into PDHPE.

Data AusGOAL provides support to government and other sectors to enable open access to publicly funded information. Australian Governments Open Access and Licensing Framework The Australian Antarctic Data Centre is a part of Australia's Antarctic Science Program. Masculinities To speak of masculinities is to speak about gender relations. Masculinities are not equivalent to men; they concern the position of men in a gender order. They can be defined as the patterns of practice by which people (both men and women, though predominantly men) engage that position. There is abundant evidence that masculinities are multiple, with internal complexities and even contradictions; also that masculinities change in history, and that women have a considerable role in making them, in interaction with boys and men. I have been an interested observer of masculinities all my life, but began to think of this as a researchable issue in the late 1970s.

Five Visual Dictionaries and Thesauri for Students Like all teachers I have found that the right visual aids can make all the difference between students understanding a term or walking away shaking their heads. This pattern is carries over to learning new vocabulary words and or seeing the connections between similar words. Here are five visual dictionaries and thesauri that can help your students learn new vocabulary words.

Comments Ronie Gonzalez If the women responded like the men did, then they're considered to be rude. Media needs to stop asking these questions of women athletes and show them the same respect they show male athletes. Johnathan Rozie Kat Audrey If female athletes responded to these questions the same way as their male colleagues, they would be labelled as mean bitches. Functionalism (philosophy of mind) Since mental states are identified by a functional role, they are said to be realized on multiple levels; in other words, they are able to be manifested in various systems, even perhaps computers, so long as the system performs the appropriate functions. While computers are physical devices with electronic substrate that perform computations on inputs to give outputs, so brains are physical devices with neural substrate that perform computations on inputs which produce behaviors. An important part of some accounts of functionalism is the idea of multiple realizability.
