The Challenge of World Poverty, Spring 2011

This is a course for those who are interested in the challenge ... (more)

This is a course for those who are interested in the challenge posed by massive and persistent world poverty, and are hopeful that economists might have something useful to say about this challenge. The questions we will take up include: Is extreme poverty a thing of the past? What is economic life like when living under a dollar per day? Why do some countries grow fast and others fall further behind? Does growth help the poor? Are famines unavoidable? How can we end child labor - or should we? How do we make schools work for poor citizens? How do we deal with the disease burden? Is micro finance invaluable or overrated? Without property rights, is life destined to be "nasty, brutish and short"? Has globalization been good to the poor? Should we leave economic development to the market? Should we leave economic development to non-governmental organizations (NGOs)? Does foreign aid help or hinder? Where is the best place to intervene? (less)

This kit provides teachers and other educators with the materials to help young children begin to understand the purpose of TV commercials (and advertising in general) in terms of selling intent, and to recognize the types of tricks that advertisers may use to make products look better than they really are. Specific lessons focus on foods groups and misleading nutritional messages commonly found in children's TV commercials, especially the "complete breakfast shot" and highly sugared pseudo-fruit snacks and beverages. Lessons are designed to address developmentally appropriate health standards, and many different commercials are provided so that children can discuss and practice what they have learned. (less)

To reinforce students' understanding of the human digestion process, the functions of several stomach and small intestine fluids are analyzed, and the concept of simulation is introduced through a short, introductory demonstration of how these fluids work. Students learn what simulation means and how it relates to the engineering process, particularly in biomedical engineering. The teacher demo requires vinegar, baking soda, water and aspirin. (less)

“Dunia Fi Lubnan” is an online Arabic interactive storybook developed by Alefb multicultural center for children with support from Qatar Foundation International through a Curriculum Development grant. The storybook is a fully illustrated interactive story, and includes interactive comprehension quiz questions prompted by "Nahla the bee" in English, playful drills to test reading, writing and comprehension, and cultural games from which the learner can accumulate points to earn a surprise gift from Alefb. The story of Dunia, stretched out over 22 fully illustrated pages, tells a tale about a young girl who tries to overcome her fear of speaking Arabic. Along the way, users are exposed to several interactive self-correcting drills, audio files, cultural authentic documents tackling a wide variety of learning topics based on the themes and lessons within Dunia's story. Animations, sounds, glossaries pages and English translation tools all provide helpful hints and aid the learner in staying engaged. “Dunia Fi Lubnan” is an integrated educational material in that it uses both Modern Standard Arabic, الفصحى and colloquial العامية. The interactive and multimedia components are designed in part to enhance regular curricula for teaching Arabic as a foreign language to children, teens and even adults, individually or in a classroom setting. When all of the modules are completed, learners will have acquired new vocabulary, reinforced their reading, writing and comprehension skills, and been exposed to different practices, products and perspectives of the Arabic culture. Learners will be able to write a simple postcard using vocabulary from the following topics: Greetings, Feelings, Activities, Countries and Places, Colors, Food, Things and Family/Friends. (less)

This lesson is about the flow of energy in ecosystems. The setting is Plimoth Plantation, a living history museum in Plymouth, Massachusetts, USA, where students will learn about the first Thanksgiving meal in America, celebrated in 1621 by early American settlers and Wampanoag Indians. By examining this meal and comparing it to a modern day Thanksgiving celebration, students will be able to explore the way in which food energy moves and is transformed in an ecosystem. The learning goals focus on the movement of energy from one feeding level to the next within a food web, the way in which energy changes form, and the inefficiency of energy transfer, which in turn affects the availability of food energy for organisms at the highest feeding level. The lesson is directed at high school level biology students. Students should be familiar already with food webs, food chains, and trophic (feeding) levels. They should also be familiar with the general equations for photosynthesis (CO2 + H2O => C6H12O6) and cell respiration (C6H12O6 => CO2 + H2O), and understand the basic purpose of these processes in nature. This lesson can be completed during one long classroom period, or can be divided over two or more class meetings. The duration of the lesson will depend on prior knowledge of the students and on the amount of time allotted for student discussion. There are no supplies required for this lesson other than the downloadable worksheets (accessed on this BLOSSOMS site), paper and some glue or tape. (less)

Elk (Cervus elaphus) and other ungulates in the Rocky Mountains of North America must cope with food shortages and severe weather during winter. The strength of density-dependence in these ungulate populations has been found to increase with increasing temporal variation in winter weather, most likely because of decreased carrying capacity in habitats due to the increased energy required to find food. Spatial variation in food resources has been found to have the opposite effect in the same populations: increased spatial variation weakens density-dependence, possibly due to herbivores exploiting spatial variation to feed selectively. This photograph originally appeared on the cover of Ecology (87:1) in January of 2006. (less)
