Personality London 2012: 'It can be dark and lonely at the top,’ says Victoria Pendleton “Being an athlete at the top of your game can be a lonely and dark place,” explains Michael Caulfield, a sports psychologist with The Sporting Edge and former chief executive of the Jockeys Association. “It can be absolutely heartbreaking when something doesn’t go your way – when your body lets you down, for example. All those tears we see on the podiums; that’s when they realise all the sacrifices they’ve put themselves through to get there.” In 2005, Olympic champion Dame Kelly Holmes revealed that she, like Pendleton, used to self-harm. A year before winning two gold medals in Athens in 2004, Holmes, then 34, repeatedly slashed her body with scissors, leaving scars on her arms and stomach. She said she was taking out her frustration after a calf injury had left her unable to run. Athletes deal with this despair in different ways – from engaging in benign, harmless rituals before they compete, to developing extreme psychological problems that can be dangerous and life-threatening.

A2 PE The Best Resources For Helping Teachers Use Bloom’s Taxonomy In The Classroom Bloom’s & SOLO ‘are not Just Colorful Posters we Hang on the Wall’ is my two-part series at Education Week Teacher. Bloom’s Taxonomy is talked about a lot in educational circles. However, if you believe a recent survey of visits to 23,000 U.S. classrooms, the higher-order thinking skills it’s ideally designed to promote doesn’t get much use. And I can understand why. It’s easy to get caught-up in the day-to-day work involved in teaching a class or multiple classes, and it’s easy to fall into the trap of doing the “usual stuff” and not “think out of the box.” I thought it might be useful to share in a “The Best…” list the resources that help me try to use Bloom’s Taxonomy in my classroom. There may very well be resources out there that do a far better job of explaining the Taxonomy and how to use it. I personally try to use Bloom’s Taxonomy in two ways. In addition, I try to use Bloom’s to help me formulate my own lessons. Bloom’s Revised Taxonomy Memory Understanding Applying and Analyzing
