    How the Nurturing Schools Network approach helps trainee teachers

    I guess it’s a genuine feeling because we really have benefited from it. It really has been the key thing that’s made a difference in our classroom, out of everything that we’ve done so far. I cannot think of a single training course, event, anything that I did in the last year that effected and impacted my teaching, my wellbeing, the wellbeing of my children, their learning, as The Nurturing Programme. I found that of all of the training that I had, it was the most effective and the most beneficial for my students. And I think for the community as well because when you start to talk to students…

    The Crown Court

    I am the judge, and it is my job to interpret and uphold the law. Other people present during a trial at the Crown Court are the prosecution barrister and the defence barrister, usually with solicitors behind them taking notes, and the Jury. The defendant will sit in the dock and be present during the trial. It is at my discretion whether or not there is a public gallery. After the jury has been sworn in, I address them directly. I inform them it is for them to decide, if the evidence they are going to hear proves the defendant’s guilt. I also inform them that it is their job…

    Faculty of Social Sciences and Law – the student view

    It’s really good because some of the lecturers, they really inspire you with the subjects and they teach it in such a charismatic, interesting way that you can’t help but be really interested. One of the best things about Bristol for me has been the personal tutor scheme. I’ve really enjoyed getting to know my personal tutor. She’s been really supportive of me. And other tutors as well, seminar tutors, they’ve just been really helpful. Every term you’re going to be assigned a group project. So you’re typically working with three or four people that you’ve never worked with before. So I think that is a great learning experience. If…

    Elizabeth Warren advocates for victims of predatory student loans

    -For years, Corinthian Colleges Inc. has been accused of luring students in with false promises and profiting off predatory student loans. -16,000 college students across the country are scrambling to find a new school. -Corinthian collapsed because it was a massive scam. Everyone who attended a Corinthian-owned school got ripped off in some way. -Danielle Ramos wanted to improve her earning power so she enrolled in American Career Institute in Massachusetts. But when the Institute shut down in 2013, Ramos was left with $15,000 worth of student loan debt. -I felt so cheated. When I found out the school closed, I still didn’t have a job. I didn’t have a…

    Food for Thought- Importance of Advocates

    I think that people should be able to have, also, confidential spaces, in which they feel safe coming to. I think with sexual assault, people often blame themselves, they might be unsure whether or not they want to report, to the institution or local law enforcement, so advocates can meet with students and really just figure out what they want to happen.

    Early Christian Schisms – Before Imperium – Extra History – #1

    We are going to start this off in a way that we’ve never started off an Extra History before; with a disclaimer. These next few episodes are designed to help modern students get a handle on one of the most confusing and yet most important parts of Roman history. The topics discussed in these episodes are vital to understanding the Roman mind; to understanding why Rome fell and how the Western world made the transition from the Classical Era to the Medieval one. We’re going to try and make this as engaging as we can, but it is going to involve a lot of nitty-gritty detail about doctrinal disputes. To…

    2015 Criminal Justice Thesis Show

    [music plays throughout] [many people speaking] [Joanna Amirault] This is the poster session for the Criminal Justice degree students. They’ve been working on, uh, thesis projects that they started in September. And today is, sort of, a culmination of all the work that they’ve been doing throughout the course of the year. [Aaron] My project is on the, uh, perils of, uh, texting and walking. So what me and my two other group members did was we conducted two, uh, separate methodologies. [Katie] We decided to do child sex tourism because there’s a lot of ethical issues surrounding it. And, you know, we know a lot about human trafficking, we…
