Rube Goldberg and the Meaning of Machines
Simple and compound machines are designed to make work easier. When we encounter a machine that does not fit this understanding, the so-called machine seems absurd. In this lesson, the cartoons of Rube Goldberg are introduced and engage the students in critical thinking about the way his inventions make a simple task even harder to complete. As the final lesson in the simple machines unit, the study of Rube Goldberg machines can help students evaluate the importance and usefulness of the many ma
At the end of this unit you can explain a project on sorting waste for offices.

3.2 Mental health as business: introducing the debate Is mental health a business? There are a number of signs that it could be, and Activity 8 presents a discussion between two people with strong views on mental health services and how they should be delivered. Dr Harvey Gordon is a forensic psychiatrist who has been a long-term consultant at Broadmoor High Security Hospital, and also a consultant at the Maudesley Hospital in London. Jim Read has worked for many years in organisations and networks of mental health service users/survivors as a c

2.1 Introduction Western society is increasingly preoccupied with concerns about risk, so much so that some sociologists now define it as ‘risk society’ (Beck, 1992). It is argued that people in general are experiencing heightened levels of anxiety in response to rapid technological and social change. News stories in the media are filled with warnings and dire predictions for the future. This is particularly true when the potential consequences appear to be both catastrophic and difficult to predict,

Brain: The Inside Story's "Your Thinking Brain"
If there is one thing that makes you different from other animals, it is your extraordinary ability to think. Like other thinking species, humans don't just react to the world as it is: We reflect on the past, imagine what could be, and then plan ways to make our thoughts become reality. Our brain's advanced outer layer, or cortex, enables us to remember past events and predict the future consequences of our actions before we make decisions. We can think about thinking, and use language to excha

Fossils - by StudyJams
Fossils are preserved traces of remains of living things.

Learn more about fossils with this slide show from StudyJams. Vibrant images are set to music while information is written under each photo. A short, self-checking quiz is also included with this link.
Professional Learning Communities: Concepts in Action in a Principal Preparation Program, an Element
The Professional Learning Community model has moved to the forefront in the field of education as one of the most effective frameworks to improve student achievement and overall school success. “When a school or district functions as a professional learning community (PLC), educators within the organization embrace high levels of learning for all students as both the reason the organization exists and the fundamental responsibility of those who work within it” (Dufour, 2006, p. 3).
