The German Nazis were responsible for the systematic killing of millions of Jews. Hitler called it “The Final Solution to the Jewish Problem.” There were concentration camps set up throughout German controlled territories. This project will focus on the largest and most notorious camp, Auschwitz-Birkenau, located in German-controlled Poland. Anne Frank and her family were discovered and arrested in August 1944. In September 1944 they were sent from the Westerbork Camp in the Netherlands to Auschwitz-Birkenau. Anne’s father, Otto Frank, survived and was liberated from Auschwitz-Birkenau in January 1945.
This module is thought of to be used by teachers and students. It's main area of concern is rotational motion and mass moment of inertia, two concepts which in my experience as a teacher, often makes students nervous due to the seemingly very abstract quantities involved in rotational motion. The goal of the following module is to bridge the gap between the students preliminary working knowledge in classical mechanics, while providing a hands-on approach to teaching the subject of the kinetics of rotating, solid objects. Learning ObjectivesIntroduce students to the fundamentals of the physics of rotating objects, with a suitable mix of theoretical and practical problem solving activites involving torque and mass moment of inertia.Allow students to relate their newfound understanding to real world situations where the theory allows students to analyse rotational motion in everyday situations as well as engineering applications and beyond.Enable the students to work through the concepts required before potentially proceeding with more advanced topics such as rotational energy and angular momentum.
Smithsonian Magazine: This Was Life for Japanese-Americans During WWII
February 2017 marked the 75th anniversary of Executive Order 9066, a document that President Roosevelt signed in 1942, two months after Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor. The order resulted in the imprisonment of 75,000 Americans of Japanese ancestry and 45,000 Japanese nationals in prison camps across the country, many being relocated far from home. Some 40 years later, the U.S. Congress formally recognized that the rights of the Japanese American community had been violated and President Reagan signed the Civil Liberties Act of 1988, providing an apology and restitution to the living Japanese Americans who were incarcerated during World War II.
This course is designed to teach not only historical facts about music but also to encourage deeper listening to music from a variety of sources. The course is a guided journey of listening, reading, and discussion (oral and written) of music, with corresponding recommended listening and assignments for deeper understanding. An emphasis of this design is to place music within the framework of how music is experienced instead of in a chronological sequence. To that end, the modules include a unit on the music of the Civil Rights movement, with optional material on music for social justice in contemporary America, and the musical contributions of musicians from Alabama. Instructors are encouraged to modify the materials to serve the needs of the students or audience they are serving.
Communication is an art to express ideas and thoughts to people. Listening-Speaking-Reading-Writing remains the fundamental parts of communication. Whereas Listening and Reading are Receptive; Speaking and Writing are Expressive faculties. Communication can be divided into three basic components: they are Presentation Skills (a combination of verbal and non-verbal communication), Writing Skills and Conversation Skills. According to research, any communication includes 7 per cent spoken words, 38 per cent voice and tone, and 55 per cent body language. It is an interesting fact that 93 per cent of our daily communication is non-verbal. Females are found to have much better visual and auditory skills. Here in this essay, we are strictly confining ourselves to its non-verbal aspect.
The skills and attitudes that lead to success in entrepreneurial endeavors lead to success in academics and in life, so this course will focus not only on conventional school content areas, but also on what the Partnership For 21st Century Skills call the “4 C’s”: communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity. Problem-based learning provides the educational model for students to apply what they are learning to real world situations and scenarios. They will develop and practice the abilities to describe a problem, propose solutions, collaborate with others to test those solutions and find alternatives, all while seeking out professional mentors and forming relationships that will last through high school and beyond. The value of networking will form a core concept of this course.
