This can be done by making sure that anything that is dirty has a tax on it to recognise the pollution, the damage and impact caused by that dirty energy. If th
Tectonic Plates and Plate Boundaries (WMS)
The earths crust is constantly in motion. Sections of the crust, called plates, push against each other due to forces from the molten interior of the earth. The areas where these plates collide often have increased volcanic and earthquake activity. These images show the locations of the plates and their boundaries in the earths crust. Convergent boundaries are areas where two plates are pushing against each other and one plate may be subducting under another. Divergent boundaries have two plates
How internet and games affect the teenage mind: mini-lecture (UCL)

Arts teachers use formal and informal strategies to assess their students’ progress and to modify their own teaching practice. In this session, participants meet a vocal music teacher who splits his choir into groups that give each other feedback; he also has students tape-record themselves during rehearsal, so he can judge their individual progress. A dance teacher critiques original choreography by a student and asks her peers to participate in the process; this feedback helps the student de

This is a recitation of the poem Chimney Sweeper by William Blake (November 1757– August 1827). In this poem, Blake depicts the life and mind of a child just after the industrial revolution. The poem is well read, but there is no indication of who did the reading. The poem is rather 'dark', which heightens the age level. There is just one still image during this brief audio.
