This paper reports findings from the Economic and Social Research Council-funded InterActive Education Project, in which teachers, researchers and teacher educators have worked together to develop, perform, and evaluate secondary school science department-based ‘Subject Design Initiatives’. Drawing on notions from sociocultural theory, we have focused on ‘cultural tools’ as material and symbolic mediators of learning. In the Subject Design Initiatives teachers are seen as central to lear

The Early Years Transition and Special Educational Needs (EYTSEN) Project: Technical Paper 3 - the P
The Early Years Transitions and Special Educational Needs (EYTSEN) project builds on the work of the Effective Provision of Pre-School Education (EPPE) project, a major longitudinal study of a national sample of young children's progress and development through pre-school and into primary school until the end of Key Stage 1 (age 3+ to 7 years). Both the EPPE and EYTSEN research studies are funded by the Department of Education and Skills (DfES). The EYTSEN study explores evidence of possible sp
Air - Is It Really There?
By watching and performing several simple experiments, students develop an understanding of the properties of air: it has mass, it takes up space, it can move, it exerts pressure, it can do work.
Auburn vs. Mississippi State (1957)
"Coach Shug Jordan's finest football machine took the test of a true champion by having to come from behind to defeat a determined Mississippi State team by a score of 15 to 7 before 43,000 in Birmingham's Legion Field. State gained a half-time lead of 7-0 on a beautifully executed 57 yard scoring pass from reserve quarterback, Tom Miller to end Ned Brooks with three minutes left in the first half. The first half was a hard-fought, defensive battle which found both teams using every opportunity
Auburn vs. Chattanooga (1957)
"A "Band Day" crowd of 17,000 saw Auburn's highpowered Tigers win its second straight game of the season, crushing a fairly strong Chattanooga Moccasin team 40-7. Coach Shug Jordan used a total of 43 players as the Tigers scored in every quarter while using various means of racking up the six touchdowns against the Tennesseans. Auburn's first unit, which played about a third of the game, scored twice, the second unit tallied twice and a combination of third and fourth units added two TD's. Six d
Middle School Portal: Math and Science Pathways (MSP2)
In this activity, students read graphs and interpret raw data to determine if there is a correlation between drinking soda and the rate of bone fractures in teenage girls. The activity is part of the Figure This! collection of 80 online mathematical challenges emphasizing real world uses of mathematics. Students are encouraged to organize data into tables to look for associations, but are cautioned that additional factors many influence the appearance of cause and effect. In other related math q
Auburn vs. Ole Miss (1953)
"Mark well the Saturday afternoon of October 3rd, for on this warm early autumn day the Plainsmen thundered into the van of Southern football powers, as they mauled the rugged Rebels of Ole Miss 13-0. The Rebels took the field at Cliff Hare Stadium looking tough and confident. About two and a half hours later they walked slowly off the scarred turf--a battered and frustrated football club. The famed Ole Miss split T running attack had managed only 32 yards against Auburn's double barreled defens
Auburn vs. Clemson (1949)
"This was the calm before the storm. A listless Auburn played a keyed Clemson and the Tigers had to make a fourth quarter comeback to gain a 20-20 tie. Playing their second game of the season in Ladd Stadium in Mobile, the Tigers were the victims of bad breaks and sluggish playing. Tidwell spearheaded Auburn's attack, but it was the desperate last minute running of Jim Jeffers that saved the day for the Tigers. Auburn was trailing 20-14 when Jeffers sparked a fourth quarter drive that netted Aub
The Influence of Race, Ethnicity, and Individual Socioeconomic Factors on Breast Cancer Stage at Dia
Objectives. Previous research has generally found that racial/ethnic differences in breast cancer stage at diagnosis attenuate when measures of socioeconomic status are included in the analysis, although most previous research measured socioeconomic status at the contextual level. This study investigated the relation between race/ethnicity, individual socioeconomic status, and breast cancer stage at diagnosis. Methods.Women with stage 0 to III breast cancer were identified from populationbased

Theatrical production in the Wash, Pomona College
Student actors perform on a makeshift stage with a white canopy in Blanchard Park on Wash Day, 1901. A tent set off to one side likely serves as a dressing room. A small removable placard next to the tent indicates a scene location. On the left side of the stage, a group of actors in dark robes and hats are gathered around a man in tights seated on a dais. In the center, a woman dressed all in white holds a basket. Behind her, a group of similarly attired actors are seated on the ground.
Theory-based support for mobile language learning: noticing and recording
This paper considers the issue of 'noticing' in second language acquisition, and argues for the potential of handheld devices to: (i) support language learners in noticing and recording noticed features 'on the spot', to help them develop their second language system; (ii) help language teachers better understand the specific difficulties of individuals or those from a particular language background; and (iii) facilitate data collection by applied linguistics researchers, which can be fed back i
The Rhetorical Situations of College Writing Assessment: Exigence, Constraints and Audience in the E
While literacy educators in the field of composition studies have traditionally approached the issue of writing assessment from a classroom perspective that emphasized assessment’s role in the processes of teaching and learning, recent trends in American public policy have made data gathered from educational assessment the basis for arguments of education policy reform. In particular, during the past 15 years, a loose affiliation of advocacy groups known as the P-16 movement has sought to use
Child Caregiver Interaction Scale
Research on early brain development and early childhood demonstrates that the experiences children have and the attachments they form early in life have a long-lasting impact on their later development and learning. The link between high quality early childhood experiences and positive child outcomes is well documented. Quality child care is comprised of the combination of classroom environment and caregiver interaction. While there are measurement tools that adequately assess the environment of
