21H.235 Metropolis: History of New York City (MIT)
Hitherto it had gone by the original Indian name Manna-hatta, or as some still have it, 'The Manhattoes'; but this was now decried as savage and heathenish... At length, when the council was almost in despair, a burgher, remarkable for the size and squareness of his head, proposed that they should call it New-Amsterdam. The proposition took every body by surprise; it was so striking, so apposite, so ingenious. The name was adopted by acclamation, and New-Amsterdam the metropolis was thenceforth

"How's the Weather?" Song
This brief video with simple animation is for young students who are learning basic weather concepts. There are 3 frames (sunny, rainy,and cloudy) and children sing the following lyrics "How's the Weather? ding a ling...Oh it's sunny.....oh it's cloudy...oh it's rainy." The lyrics repeat themselves until all three types of weather are described. This is a great teaching resource for young learners, special education students, and/or the ESL population and would work well in conjunctio

Should management be a social science or a design science?
(Editors note: The first few minutes of this podcast are missing) In this lunchtime series of lectures, a selection of LSE's academics from across the spectrum of the social sciences explain the latest thinking on how social scientists work to address the critical problems of the day. They survey the leading ideas and contributions made by their discipline, explain the types of problems that are addressed and the tools that are used, and explore the kinds of solutions proposed.
A student made video of actual student's work. The students here have illustrated an idiom from the English language and then define it for the viewer. Underneath the video you will see defintions and lesson ideas for teaching idioms. (4:00)

"Studying here gave me the confidence to start my own business," Tony Wheeler (MSc05), Founder of LonelyPlanet, explains in the School's new TV adverts which launched in October 2009 and run on CNN EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa).
Don Sull, Professor of Management Practice in Strategic and International Management, shares four market opportunities that flexible and agile managers can seize in a downturn
Many students, especially students with limited English language skills, have difficulties determining the difference between narrative and expository texts. This unit will use vignettes written by Peace Corps Volunteers serving in Lesotho and Madagascar to compare these types of texts. As final products, students will write both a narrative essay and an expository essay. This unit was piloted with high school second language learners.
In this lesson students will compare and make distinctions among 5 alternative fuels. They will understand the impact of different types of fuel on: a. the environment b. lifestyle c. the economy/personal finances of car choices. They will also use critical thinking skills to support multi-step decision-making for buying a car.
General Learning Objectives for Immunology 1. To understand the structural and genetic basis of diversity and specificity of immunoglobulins and T cell receptors. 2. To understand the utility of antibodies in many clinical tests for proteins, hormones, etc. 3. To understand the events that hallmark the antigen-independent and antigen-dependent phases of B cell differentiation. 4. To understand the diversity of MHC molecules, and how that diversity differs from immunoglobulin and T cell rece
The materials on this page represent a curriculum for teaching effective patient communication to dentistry students. These techniques could be useful for other healthcare providers, as well: medical students, nursing students, public health providers, and in-practice health care providers. There are two main types of resources: performance keys and videos. Performance Keys are text documents that articulate key patient interaction skills, and give examples of more and less effective techniques
In the Tropical edition of the Natural Inquirer you will learn about different types of plants and animals. The tropics are the home of a variety of biomes, or regions with different kinds of vegetation and other life. Tropical biomes are largely defined by the amount of rainfall they get. In the tropics, you might find rain forests, dry forests, shrub lands, tropical plains called savannahs, and deserts. Scientists working in the International Institute of Tropical Forestry, or IITF, conducted
There are three lessons in this group. The first two provide students with the opportunity to learn about the circulatory system and conduct an experiment where they take their pulses after different types of activity. During the third lesson, a pediatrician explains how she checks a patient's heart and the ways that a healthy lifestyle (food and exercise) can keep students' hearts healthy.
We run events throughout the year, giving potential mature students the chance to visit Cambridge, find out more, and have their questions answered. Watch our video, to hear from some of the participants of the Mature Students' Summer School. You can find further information about events for mature students further down the page.

In the Environmental Catalysis Module, a joint project with the Institute for Environmental Catalysis at Northwestern University, students learn what a catalyst is and become aware of the use of catalysis to promote environmental protection. Besides introducing the concept of catalysis, the module also focuses other issues such as catalytic selectivity, specificity, poisoning, condition optimization, and waste minimization. The first activity of the module introduces the concept of catalysis in
