3.4 Biological approaches

Certain kinds of psychological disturbances may be seen as ‘malfunctions’ of the brain. If a psychological problem has an obvious biological explanation, then it may be possible to direct therapeutic approaches at this level. However, as we have seen, it is difficult to identify precise biological causes for complex psychological phenomena. Even if this were possible, it would not always be practicable to use treatments to change the underlying biological factors. Genetic ‘explanations

2.7 (iii) Royal Commissions

Royal Commissions occasionally report to Parliament with recommendations for legislation which may be taken up as part of the Government's legislative programme. Royal Commissions are advisory committees established by the Government – though formally appointed by the Crown, hence the ‘Royal’ – to investigate any subject the Government sees fit to refer to one. They are often used for non-party political issues, or for issues that a Government wishes to be seen as addressing in a non-

Naturalistic observation of small group work in key stage 1 classrooms
The physical environment of the classroom is one of many diverse social contexts encountered by a child; recognisable in many shapes and forms across the world, its core features have remained essentially unchanged throughout centuries of concomitant social change. Whilst such durability stands as a powerful testament to the success of the classroom as a mode of social organisation and learning (Kushner, Simon et al. 2001), it is also indicative of how decades of curriculum research, innovation

5.3.2 Productivity difference

The preceding discussion has only considered what would happen if all women undertake less investment in human capital than men. If men and women invest to the same extent, human capital theory suggests that no wage differences would be observed. What happens, however, if there are differences in skill levels both between genders and within gender groups? To consider this we will also make the additional assumption that firms do not know when recruiting workers who are the most productive. Ho

First steps and second thoughts on method: beginning to research the learning of new teachers
This paper is an account of our progress in addressing the challenge of developing a quasi-experimental method of assessing early professional learning (EPL), based on a model from data gathered by teachers as ethnographers in their own schools. From the early doubts and debates in internal discussions about the research design, we present in this paper the steps taken so far and our thoughts about these. Progress on the five indicators of early professional learning in the proposal are describe

Evaluating an evidence-based approach to designing and implementing a teaching sequence about plant
Although there is now a significant database of research evidence about students’ learning of biological concepts, there is general scepticism as to whether this research has had any impact on the practice of teachers. A likely reason for the low impact of research is that little is known about what is involved for teachers in drawing upon research findings about learning to improve practice. In this paper we present findings from a study that is investigating the process of transforming resea

6.1 How fertilization happens
This unit looks at the human being in the context of an individual life cycle, examining some of the processes that contribute to the formation of a new person. After a brief discussion of historical ideas about human conception, and about contraception to the present day, we look at the cells involved in the conception and development of a new individual. Gamete production (that is, production of mature cells able to unite with another in sexual reproduction) in both men and women is introduced

E-Portfolio Toolkit - Booklet
This E-Portfolio Toolkit is based on experience of developing the “Year Abroad E-Portfolio”, undertaken by the School of Languages at Leeds Metropolitan University. We use an E-Portfolio to assess our students on their period abroad because we think it encourages them to fully engage with culture(s) and language of the target country and to reflect on the resulting cultural and linguistic development. As part of our project, we have also developed a set of learning activities and materials,
