In this activity, students will be practicing the home vocabulary with a special focus on how they would use the verbs, استطيع، اعود. They will be having a small discussion with each other asking and answering questions.Can-Do Statements:I recognize most of the “Home” vocabulary to describe my home.I can use both verbs اسْتَطَاعَ، عَادَ conjugated with subject pronouns.I can talk about my favorite spot at my home.
This resource is a video abstract of a research paper created by Research Square on behalf of its authors. It provides a synopsis that's easy to understand, and can be used to introduce the topics it covers to students, researchers, and the general public. The video's transcript is also provided in full, with a portion provided below for preview:
"This tiny brain structure is known as the claustrum. For more than a hundred years, scientists have speculated about what exactly the claustrum does. But only recently has state-of-the-art biological technology allowed researchers to probe its anatomy and connections to the rest of the brain. Francis Crick—of DNA fame—and neuroscientist Christof Koch hypothesized the claustrum to be the seat of consciousness, a conductor of sorts, orchestrating the activity of neurons in charge of higher brain functions from deep within. Now, new research from the RIKEN Center for Brain Science in Japan appears to confirm that hypothesis. Only, instead of arousing neurons to action, the claustrum lulls them to sleep. The claustrum is both an appropriate and unfortunate name for this important part of the brain’s anatomy. Latin for “hidden or shut away,” the claustrum has long defied close examination due to its thin, irregular shape and placement deep within the brain..."

Earth is trying to sleep but the Satellites keep bothering Earth with noisy signals. They are talking in all different languages and sending all kinds of information.
Is sleep for rest? To conserve energy? For development? To cool the brain? To warm it? To boost the immune system? To learn and memorize? Or to unlearn, ridding our brains of excess mental baggage? All of these ideas have been proposed, leading to the suggestion that insomniacs might do better to count sleep theories instead of sheep. Join renowned neuroscientist Ralph Greenspan of The Neurosciences Institute to explore the latest research into the question of why we sleep. (59 minutes)
In this activity about sleep rhythms (on page 25 of the PDF), learners will investigate how changing the time they go to bed impacts their own sleep patterns. For one night, learners will go to bed one hour earlier than usual. They will observe and record any impacts that this change has on their abilities to fall asleep, and on their usual wake times the next morning. This lesson guide includes background information, setup and management tips, extensions and a handout.
This presentation introduces factors for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. In continuation of this, we will discuss the rationale for including measurements of activity and sleep in the OPUS School Meal Study. Furthermore, we will describe the methods used to quantify physical activity and sleep. Finally, we will highlight the important ongoing data analyses from the physical activity and sleep measurements.
Psychology is designed to meet scope and sequence requirements for the single-semester introduction to psychology course. The book offers a comprehensive treatment of core concepts, grounded in both classic studies and current and emerging research. The text also includes coverage of the DSM-5 in examinations of psychological disorders. Psychology incorporates discussions that reflect the diversity within the discipline, as well as the diversity of cultures and communities across the globe.Senior Contributing AuthorsRose M.

Students learn about psychology, beginning with a brief history of psychologists and their experimental methods. They then examine psychological concepts, such as personality theories, human development, and consciousness, including sleep, dreams, and psychoactive substances. Students also investigate social psychology and psychological disorders. They demonstrate their understanding by completing projects in which they play roles like teacher, parent, and psychologist.
The Science of Sleep teaches us the vital importance of sleep and how it determines our mental and physical health. It explores the neuroscience of sleep and cultural, social, and political aspects of how people view sleep and are affected by sleep.
No matter what you’re doing--solving homework, playing a video game, simply picking out a shirt--all of your actions and decisions relate to your consciousness. But as frequently as we use it, have you ever stopped to ask yourself: What really is consciousness? In this module, we discuss the different levels of consciousness and how they can affect your behavior in a variety of situations. As well, we explore the role of consciousness in other, “altered” states like hypnosis and sleep.
Students will practice asking about the daily routines of their peers. They will also be able to describe their own daily activities to others.
Students will get to know their classmates better by asking what kind of activities they participate in. This will help students learn how to interact with other people in Korean. By conversing, the students will be able to identify some similarities with their peers as well.
