Multigrade classes The Turks and Caicos Islands are a multi-island archipelago (are) at the southern tip of the Bahamas chain, approximately 550 miles south-east of Florida. The islands are an overseas territory of the United Kingdom although they exercise a high degree of local political autonomy. The economy of the islands rests mainly on tourism, with some contribution from offshore banking and fishing. Primary schooling is divided into eight grades, with most pupils entering at the age of four years and leaving at twelve. After two kindergarten years, Grades 1-6 are covered by a graded curriculum in maths, language and science that increases in difficulty as pupils get older. There is little repetition and pupils are expected to progress through primary school in their age cohorts (ifiliFfiMEEfiA). At the end of primary schooling, pupils sit an examination that serves to stream them in the secondary setting. Primary and secondary school enrolment is virtually universal. There are a total often government primary schools on the islands. Of theseA seven are large enough to organize pupils into single grade classrooms. Pupils in these schools are generally grouped by age into mixed-ability classes.The remaining three schools because of their small pupil numbers operate with multigrade groupings. They serve communities with small populations whose children cannot travel to a neighbouring larger primary school. Pupils in these classes span up to three ggde and age groups. As far as classroom organization is concerned, the multigrade and monograde classrooms are similar in terms of the number of pupils and the general seating arrangements, with pupils in rows facing the blackboard. There is no evidence that the multigrade teachers operate in a particularly resource—poor environment in the Turks and Caicos Islands. This is in contract to studies conducted in other developing country contexts. According to the text, which of the follam'ng statements can be concluded about primary classes in the Turks and Caicos Islands? I Most primary pupils are in mixed-ability classes.

Spain Here is a part of Spain's sun-baked Andalucia that is extraordinary not only because of its unspoiled terrain and authentic Spanish traditions but also because of its Caves. These are not dark. damp holes, with dripping water and evil smells. They are residences, ancient Bronze Age dwellings now being refurbished for hundreds of let century Spaniards. In Galera, the region’s most important village, it's estimated that there are at least 1 000 such habitations carved into its m. "We take old caves, renovate them, then sell them on," says Rob Oakley, office manager of leading developer Galera enterprises “Our company was set up by someone who discovered the area of Galera when it was just a tourist attraction 15 years ago and saw its potential." The ancient abodes are transformed from rough caves into relatively luxurious homes, equipped out with amenities like electricity and sewage, phone lines, running hot water, even internet connections.

Britain "September 2,1752, was a great day in the history of sleep. That Wednesday evening, millions of British subjects in England and the colonies went peacefully to sleep and did not wake up until twelve days later. Behind this feat of narcoleptic prowess was not some revolutionary hypnotic technique or miraculous pharmaceutical discovered in the West Indies. It was, rather, the British Calendar Act of 1751, which declared the day alter Wednesday 2nd to be Thursday 14th Prior to that cataleptic September evening, the official British calendar differed from that of continental Europe by eleven daysithat is. September 2 in London was September 13 in Paris, Lisbon, and Berlin. The discrepancy had sprung from Britain's continued use of the Julian calendar, which had also been the official calendar of Europe from is invention by Julius Caesar (afier Whom it was named) in 45 B.C, until the decree of Pope Gregory XIII in 1582. Caesar’s calendar, which consisted of eleven months of 30 or 31 days and a 28-day Febniary (extended to 29 days every fourth year), was actually quite accurate: it erred from the real solar calendar by only 1 1 1/2 minutes a year. Alter centuries, though, even a small inaccuracy like this adds up. By the sixteenth centm'y, it had put the Julian calendar behind the solar one by 10 days. In Europe, in 1582, Pope Gregory XIII ordered the advancement of the Julian calendar by 10 days and introduced a new corrective device to curb further error, century years such as 1700 or 1800 would no longer be counted as leap years, unless they were (like 1600 or 2000) divisible by 400."

Pigeons’ homingskill The theory that pigeons famous skill at navigation is down to iron-rich nerve cells in theirbeaks has been disproved by a new study published in Nature The study shows that iron- rich cells in the pigeon beak are in fact specialised white blood cells, called macrophages. This finding, which shatters the established dogma, puts the field back on course as the search for magnetic cells continues.‘The mystery of how animals detect magnetic fields has just got more mysterious” said Dr David Keays who led the study. Dr Keays continued: “We had hoped to find magnetic nerve cells, but unexpectedly we found thousands of macrophages, each filled with tiny balls of iron.”Macrophages are a type ofwhite blood cell that play a vital role in defending against infection and re-cycling iron fi'om red blood cells. They’re unlikely to be involved in magnetic sensing as they are not excitable cells and cannot produce electrical signals which could be registered by neurons and therefore influence the pigeon’s behaviour. We employed state—of—the—art imaging techniques to visualise and map the location of hon-filled cells in the pigeon beak. 21. fizlk‘ 36% @492 Culture Efiflklfiflfi‘l’fi‘fiififiv fiflfijifiiflgiflflfl’l‘flfiv #flfillflfiififliflififi 333E351 Bil/by EEfiIfllKlfifile/b fiEKlfilIiTl’EE‘JWl‘iv ’Afiflfififi‘lfi‘ll‘ilfllfi'fififi 5U local company Wfi‘ifiba UK W?i¥§!fi%5+filfi§i5k9¥%. fifilflllgmflflfifiRE discussion.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
