The Toxic Stress of Early Childhood Adversity
The Forum at the Harvard School of Public Health Evidence suggests that for the youngest children, prolonged or severe exposure to abuse, neglect and economic hardship -- exacerbated by a dearth of stable, supportive relationships with adults -- can provoke a "toxic stress response" with lifelong consequences.

Sacred Geometry in Art History
There isn't any sound, but the eight minute video does show geometric figures in many of the world's most famous paintings. There is some nude images in the painting and so the teacher should preview and, perhaps, select those paintings which offer the best lessons.
Best Practices Weekly--Teaching Math Vocabulary Effectively
In this Best Practices Weekly video, teacher Elliott reviews an article about effective ways of teaching Math vocabulary from Teaching Children Mathematics. Some key strategies include previewing or changing new context vocabulary words, leading students without first introducing difficult math vocabulary word (example-multiplication), having conversations with students about words with non-math meanings, and reviewing terms daily.

Mental Cases by Wilfred Owen (poetry reading)
Painting, The Fatherland, 1916, by C.R.W. Nevinson Who are these? Why sit they here in twilight? Wherefore rock they, purgatorial shadows, Drooping tongues from jaws that slob their relish, Baring teeth that leer like skulls' teeth wicked? Stroke on stroke of pain, - but what slow panic, Gouged these chasms round their fretted sockets? Ever from their hair and through their hands' palms Misery swelters. Surely we have perished Sleeping, and walk hell; but who these hellish? These are men whos

Stroke Treatment Centers: James Anderson's Minimally Invasive Procedure - MUSC Health

How to Move a House
The former home of May Prentice, Kent State University's first female faculty member, squeezes between two other houses en route to a new location. Its former lot will become part of the Kent State University Esplanade extension, which will connect the university to the city of Kent. The university is preserving the 110-year-old house due to its historical connection to Kent State.
Teaching Point of View
Students will learn point of view by comparing and contrasting the views of slaves and a doctor in The People Could Fly retold by Virginia Hamilton and The Passing Cloud -- The Southern Negro by David Morrill. I strongly suggest the teacher previews The Passing Cloud -- The Southern Negro by David Morrill. The entire text is not needed in order for students to form an opinion or to learn point of view. Some students and parents may find the language offensive. I found the text interesting becaus
