What is your experience of work and what did you learn from this experience? This unit will enable you to reflect upon what you have learned from work and support you in improving how you learn at work. It will encourage you to think critically about work-based learning and review your own professional knowledge and skills.
Assessing your skills
Welcome to Assessing Your Skills one of the series of Futures workbooks, which help students choose and prepare for their careers. Like the other workbooks in the series you can dip in and out doing the exercises which are most relevant to you. You might want to include the exercises or the output in your personal development plan or e-portfolio. The aim of this workbook is to help you to clarify or identify your skills as a first step toward choosing work that really suits you. It can also he
The impact of enterprise focussed modules
This presentation outlines the use of a tested research instrument (Bandura's self efficacy theory) and students own perceptions of their enterprise skills and abilities
Don't put it down, put it up!
In a fifth grade classroom based around projects, everything has its place. This classroom profile shows you the design and purpose of Debra Harwell-Braun's fifth-grade classroom.
Key skills - making a difference
This unit focuses on higher level skills. Skills development is complementary to other learning – it cannot be done in isolation. The higher level skills in this material aim to raise your awareness of the processes of learning and development – other subject-based material must supply the context and motivation for this. Key skills underpin the ability to carry out successfully, and improve on, a wide range of tasks in higher education, employment and wherever there is a continuation of le
Mushroom Meatloaf with Mushroom Gravy
Meatloaf is the quintessential American comfort food, and Chef Bill Briwa gives this classic dish a healthy twist with mushrooms. He switches out half the ground meat with chopped mushrooms, which not only adds flavor, but can help the meatloaf from drying out. Find the recipe at http://www.ciaprochef.com/mushrooms/recipe3.html
Mushroom Chili with Chipotle
With a well-seasoned blend of sautéed mushrooms and meat, you can easily make family favorites more wholesome. In this recipe, Chef Bill Briwa adds chopped mushrooms to chili, which blend so seamlessly with the meat that your dinner-table "regulars" may not notice the switch.

Religious Activities and Health Outcomes: The College Bound Sisters Program
The purpose of the College Bound Sisters (CBS) program is to help younger sisters of teenage mothers to change their life trajectory by accomplishing 3 objectives: avoidance of pregnancy, completion of high school, and enrollment in college. This study is a program evaluation of its effectiveness. The conceptual framework is based on Norbeck's (1988) theoretical model of social support. This model proposes that if an adolescent's stress can be mediated or alleviated throu
Hands-on science exploration clarifies difficult concepts and engages learners who have difficulty in more traditional classrooms. This article looks at an inquiry-based classroom that meets the needs of all of its students.

NASA CONNECT PSA - The Astronaut's Helper
In NASA CONNECT PSA: The Astronaut's Helper, students will be introduced to the Personal Satellite Assistant (PSA), a small, spherical robot that assists astronauts with their chores on space-based vehicles. Students will learn about different types of robots and the mechanical systems on the PSA that must work together for the PSA to function. In the web activity, students interact with a simulation of the PSA and learn how forces affect motion in a low-friction, microgravity environment. Stude
Thematic Poetry Videos
Overview: Youth literacy can be promoted by leveraging youth culture, such as rap/music videos. By merging sound and visual imagery with text, a poetry writing task can be transformed into a multi-media video assignment. English teachers with access to a computer lab equipped with video editing software (e.g. i-Movie) can carry this out with their classes. Alternatively, English and computer lab teachers can collaborate to have their students produce thematic poetry videos as the culminating act
PURPOSE: A simple Excel-based workbook with worksheets as a front end for the AT&T GraphViz Graph Layout software suite. BioGrapher enhances Excel-based tools developed in the Chemistry and Biology Departments at Beloit College to allow for convenient visualization of graphs and graphical connections that are important in systems and computational biology, molecular biology, biochemistry, and genetics.
The Greenomes site is part of a laboratory- and Internet-based curriculum to bring college students up to the minute with modern plant research. Plant molecular genetic and genomic research still lags behind medically-oriented research on microbes and higher animals. As a result, there are relatively few lab experiences that expose college-level students to the growing insights into plants offered by genomic biology.
DNA Sequencing Used to Illustrate Mutations and Evolution
This workshop, which is half wet lab and half Internet lab, uses DNA sequences to examine the relatedness of different species. DNA from several insect and/or fish species are compared. This chapter includes instructions for extracting DNA from gels and making PCR products. We prepare PCR products to send to a computerized automated sequencing facility. (No radioisotopes are used in this sequencing!) We recover sequence from the facility over the Web as four-color graphics on a computer screen a
The implications of the Eightfold path
Dr Mike Lucas explains the implications of a new business model based on Buddhist economics, and how it could promote a new governance structure re-connecting the corporation with the community.
United States EVI from Summer, 2000 to Spring, 2001.
Traditional satellite-based mapping of vegetation vigor and amount is based on the way vegetation interacts with red and infrared light. Occasionally, however, those two signals are not enough. MODIS measures light reflected from Earth at a variety of wavelengths, and the Arizona researchers incorporate the additional information into their Enhanced Vegetation Index (EVI). The EVI has increased sensitivity within very dense vegetation, and it has built-in corrections for several factors that can
Reel American History Project
The general goal of the Reel American History project is to foster critical thinking about a matter of enduring cultural attention, especially where young people are concerned: the formation of our national identity. Reel American History is designed to be a "Collaborative Shared Resource". It aims at being a large, ongoing, cumulative, collaborative project that involves many students and many faculty over a long period of time. We strive to engage students in authentic learning – making st
When Everything Looks Like a Nail: Graph Models of the Internet
The general appeal of abstracting real-world networks to simple graphs is understandable and has been partly responsible for fueling the new field of "network science". However, as the Internet application has demonstrated, such abstractions that ignore much of what engineers consider as critical come at a price. For example, they can lead to the study of graph models that have little in common with the real-world networks that motivated these models in the first place. In turn, they tend to foc
