Teaching the teachers TO THE 11- and 12-year-olds in his maths class, Jimmy Cavanagh seems like a born teacher. He is warm but firm. His voice is strong. Correct answers make him smile. And yet it is not his pep that explains why his pupils at North Star Academy in Newark, New Jersey, can expect to go to university, despite 80% of their families needing help to pay for school meals. Mr Cavanagh is the product of a new way of training teachers.

John Rassias, Who Pioneered Foreign Language Teaching, Dies at 90 Photo John Rassias, a Dartmouth professor whose theatrical, immersive approach to teaching foreign languages rapidly, known as the Rassias Method, has been used by thousands of teachers around the world since the 1960s, died on Wednesday at his home in Norwich, Vt. He was 90. His son, Athos, confirmed the death. Professor Rassias (pronounced RAH-see-us) developed his method while advising the Peace Corps in the early 1960s on how to train volunteers assigned to French-speaking African countries. He brought to the task his own painful memories of the rote method.

Of productivity in France and in Germany Partager cet article At the start of 2017, with the elections in France in the Spring and then in Germany in the Autumn, it may prove useful to return to one of the fundamental issues which plagues discussion at European level, that is the alleged economic asymmetry between Germany with its reputation as prosperous and France which is described as on the decline. I use the term ‘alleged’ because, as we shall see, the level of productivity of the German and French economies – as measured in terms of GDP per hour worked, which is by far most relevant indicator of economic performance – is almost identical. Furthermore it is at the highest world level, demonstrating incidentally that the European social model has a bright future, despite what the Brexiters and Trumpers of every hue might think. Let’s start with the most striking fact. We should also state that the figures for hours worked which we use here are taken from the series in the OECD data base.

Art and Playgrounds by Simon and Tom Bloor - Playscapes In London recently I got the chance to meet Simon and Tom Bloor, contemporary artists/brothers whose body of work derives from play and the playground experience. You’ll want to visit their website, which features a great array of found images that inspire pieces ranging from a canal boat with a dazzle-paint inspired exterior and a mirrored interior, to gilded maquettes of mid-century play-features and half-tone prints in play themes, to a brilliant, free-form geometry painted on a boring school tarmac that has prompted the schoolchildren to create new games on its lines. I particularly appreciate that Simon and Tom’s work is deeply historically informed.

Trick questions that show how your brain organizes language. Wikimedia Commons Your first intuition was probably to answer "milk." And then, depending on how familiar you are with bovine diets, you realized that, wait, it's the calves that drink milk—adult cows drink water. What’s going on that makes it so hard to respond correctly?

Worldwide hemisphere-dependent lean in Cook pines - Johns - 2017 - Ecology Under most conditions, trees grow vertically in response to the opposing influences of light and gravity (Wyatt and Kiss 2013). In challenging environments, where competition for light or mechanical stress is intense, trees may grow non-vertically (Loehle 1986). Here we describe a novel hemisphere-dependent leaning habit in Araucaria columnaris (Cook pine) (J.R.
