Pupil voice: comfortable and uncomfortable learnings for teachers
This is a DfES Research Informed Practice (TRIPS) digest of research. The researchers interviewed Year 8 pupils about the teaching and learning in their lessons. They fed back the comments to their teachers. They then interviewed the teachers to find their reactions to the pupils’ comments and investigated the use the teachers made of the ideas with their current and subsequent classes.

Seasonal Migrations: Whooping Cranes
Children follow the migrations of animals. They observe, research, and report their findings, and watch journeys progress on real-time maps. Through these interrelated investigations, students discover that sunlight drives all living systems and they learn about the dynamic ecosystem that surrounds and connects them. Fall: Students watch chicks grow and then "join" the migration as humans teach the birds a new route using an ultra-light plane to lead the way. Daily updates: September-December. S

Welcome to Hindsight, an online history project that will transport you back to New York City on May 8, 1970. Your mission is to determine what happened on that day, and what meaning it might hold for us today. Our site uses the web's characteristics to foster historical inquiry -- you will navigate through multiple sources of evidence, explore diverse perspectives, and make connections within this "web" of material. The site is part archive, part essay, and part interactive exhibit.

1.6.3 Fiscal retrenchment? If we turn to fiscal issues, at the time of entry to the EU in 2004, six of the ten entry countries had government deficits in excess of the SGP/ Maastricht Treaty 3 per cent of GDP rule: the Czech Republic (−5.9 per cent), Cyprus (−4.6 per cent), Hungary (−4.9 per cent), Malta (−5.9 per cent), Poland (−6.0 per cent) and Slovakia (−4.1 per cent). Thus these countries would be required to cut back on their public expenditures or increase taxes so as to
