2.3 Other points for diagnostic consideration Besides having ‘criterial’ symptoms, many people with autism have additional difficulties. For instance, they may experience perceptual distortions such as perceiving normal noises as extremely loud and disturbing. These features are not always present, and are not specific to autism. It has been suggested that problems such as dyslexia and ADHD similarly have some shared features. Omitting such shared features from criteria helps to ensure that they discriminate autism from other di

The American Novel Since 1945
In "The American Novel Since 1945" students will study a wide range of works from 1945 to the present. The course traces the formal and thematic developments of the novel in this period, focusing on the relationship between writers and readers, the conditions of publishing, innovations in the novel's form, fiction's engagement with history, and the changing place of literature in American culture. The reading list includes works by Richard Wright, Flannery O'Connor, Vladimir Nabokov, Jack Keroua
Toulouse-Lautrec and Montmartre
This site focuses on paintings, posters, and other works by Lautrec depicting the decadent spirit and bohemian life of this hilltop working-class district on the outskirts of Paris at the turn of the 20th century. A special web feature discusses Montmartre celebrities, cafes and cabarets, brothels, and circuses portrayed by Lautrec (1864-1901), as well as his first lithograph -- the poster that made him an overnight sensation.
Foto: Modernity in Central Europe, 1918-1945
During and directly after World War I, four great empires (Germany, Austro-Hungary, Russia, and the Ottomans) crumbled precipitously, to be replaced by more than one dozen fledgling nation-states. The largely agrarian, in some cases semifeudal, societies of central Europe were thrust nearly overnight into crises of civil war, unemployment, or inflation — and beyond these crises into a world propelled by mass media and consumer economies. Becoming modern was attractive but also anxiety-provokin
Bebop and Modernism
In this lesson students will study how social and economic changes in post–World War II America influenced arts and culture. Students will learn about the experience of African Americans in the postwar period, including the civil rights movement and desegregation, and the influence of these experiences on African-American culture. Students will study how competition with the Soviet Union during the Cold War contributed to the popularity of jazz around the world. They will learn about the music
Sow the Seeds of Victory! Posters from the Food Administration During World War I
This lesson tells how Herbert Hoover, head of the new U.S. Food Administration, convinced Americans to conserve food during the Great War. Homeowners were urged to sign pledge cards to conserve food. Many observed wheat less Mondays, meatless Tuesdays, and pork less Saturdays. This website presents posters that helped carry one of the messages of Hoover and the Wilson administration: that Food will win the war.
Court Documents Related to Martin Luther King, Jr., and Memphis Sanitation Workers
This lesson provides fliers and other documents related to the demonstration in Memphis on March 28, 1968. On that day, students near the end of the march broke windows of businesses. Looting ensued. The march was halted. King was deeply distressed by the violence. He and fellow leaders negotiated a commitment to nonviolence among disagreeing factions in Memphis, and another march was planned for April 8. On April 4, as he stepped out of his motel room to go to dinner, he was assassinated.
Journey North Journals: Helping Young Minds Grow
This teachers' lesson offers tips on using Journey North journals to inspire learning and assessment. When students use journals to capture and reflect on observations, experiences, and data — and put forth opinions, predictions, and theories — learning blossoms. These records can also be great assessment tools because they offer you and your students windows into their thinking, understanding, and knowledge gaps. Finally, they can help you address pressures to integrate writing into subject

From Cowboys to Clara Bow: A College Student's Motion Picture Autobiography
Fears about the impact of movies on youth led to the Payne Fund research project, which brought together nineteen social scientists and resulted in eleven published reports. One of the most fascinating of the studies was carried out by Herbert Blumer, a young sociologist who would later go on to a distinguished career in the field. For a volume that he called Movies and Conduct (1933), Blumer asked more than fifteen hundred college and high school students to write "autobiographies"of their expe
"Everything Was Lively": David Hickman Describes the Prosperity Late Nineteenth-Century Railroads Br
The availability of rail connections often determined whether a western community would survive or die. The rails fostered prosperity by bringing both goods and people. This trade, and the local service industries that sprouted up to capitalize on the movement of people and goods, drove many local economies. Here, David Hickman talked about the boom years that followed the arrival of the railroad in the Latah County, Idaho town of Genesee in the 1880s.
"Equal and Exact Justice to Both Races": Booker T. Washington on the Reaction to his Atlanta Comprom
The Atlanta Compromise speech, which Booker T. Washington delivered before the Cotton States and International Exposition in 1895, established Washington as the leading black spokesman in America. He came to control enormous amounts of northern white philanthropy directed at African Americans as well as much of the federal patronage dispensed to them by the Republican party. In this excerpt from his autobiography Up From Slavery, Washington described the reactions of both black and white America
"Drug Him Through the Street": Hughsey Childes Describes Turn-of-the-Century Sharecropping
The sharecropping system that emerged in the South in the last three decades of the 19th century afforded southern black families a certain measure of control over their daily lives and labor. But the white landowners were able to use the legal mechanisms of sharecropping to assure control over the largely African-American workforce that toiled on the farms. Here Hughsey Childes, interviewed by historian Charles Hardy in 1984, described what seems like a matter of fact exchange in which the whit
