Joan Breton Connelly, New York University: "Visual Space/Ritual Space and the Agency of the Greek Pr
The visual culture of ancient Greece has left a record rich with information on the active role of women in the organization and functioning of cult. Connelly draws upon images from vase painting, portrait sculpture, votive reliefs, and funerary monuments to bring to life the movement of women within ritual space.

Professor Mazzotta lectures on the final cantos of Paradiso (30-33). The pilgrim's journey through the physical world comes to an end with his ascent into the Empyrean, a heaven of pure light beyond time and space. Beatrice welcomes Dante into the Heavenly Jerusalem, where the elect are assembled in a celestial rose. By describing the Empyrean as both a garden and a city, Dante recalls the poles of his own pilgrimage while dissolving the classical divide between urbs and rus, between civic li

Evidence-based practice in science education: outcomes and implications
The aim of the Evidence-based Practice in Science Education (EPSE) Network was to explore the interface between science education researchers and practitioners, particularly teachers, to understand better what might be involved in moving school science education towards forms of practice that are more ‘evidence-based’. The Network undertook four inter-related projects: Project 1: Exploring the impact on teachers’ practices, and student learning, of providing diagnostic tools informed by

Cursive Capital and Lowercase Alphabets
Each letter of the alphabet is written in cursive. All of the capital letters then the lowercase letters. A short sentence is created in the end combining the cursive letters together.
It only shows the letter being written once, so you would have to pause or go back to see it over again.

Working in Classrooms: Part 3 - Managing time and space properly
Part 3 has two sections. In the first section we witness a rather chaotic classroom in which things go wrong because of ineffective use of time and space.
