Creating a Home Where Your Child Can Thrive with a Disability

When your child is disabled, whether because of the way they were born or after an accident or injury, you instantly turn from simply a parent to an advocate. It's your job to give your child the best possible start in life, embracing the different abilities so your child can thrive. However, sometimes this is difficult to do in a traditional home layout.

Vox Video: Biomimicry

Japan’s Shinkansen doesn’t look like your typical train. With its long and pointed nose, it can reach top speeds up to 150–200 miles per hour.

It didn’t always look like this. Earlier models were rounder and louder, often suffering from the phenomenon of "tunnel boom," where deafening compressed air would rush out of a tunnel after a train rushed in. But a moment of inspiration from engineer and birdwatcher Eiji Nakatsu led the system to be redesigned based on the aerodynamics of three species of birds.

Nakatsu’s case is a fascinating example of biomimicry, the design movement pioneered by biologist and writer Janine Benyus. She's a co-founder of the Biomimicry Institute, a non-profit encouraging creators to discover how big challenges in design, engineering, and sustainability have often already been solved through 3.8 billion years of evolution on earth. We just have to go out and find them.

Standards for Career-Ready Practice

About the Career Ready Practices

The Common Career Technical Core (CCTC) are the result of a state-led initiative to establish a set of rigorous, high-quality benchmark standards for Career Technical Education (CTE) that states can voluntarily adopt. Forty-two states, the District of Columbia and Palau supported the development stage of the CCTC. The CCTC include a set of end-of-program of study standards for each of the 16 Career Clusters® and their 79 Career Pathways, as well as an overarching set of Career Ready Practices, which address the knowledge, skills and dispositions that are important to becoming career ready.

CTE Model Curriculum Standards - The Anchor Standards

The 11 anchor standards build on the Standards for Career Ready Practice and are common across
the 15 industry sectors. Content for these standards was drawn from several documents: “Preparing
Students for the 21st Century Economy” (American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education
and the Partnership for 21st Century Skills 2010); How Should Colleges Prepare Students to Succeed
in Today’s Global Economy? (American Association of Colleges and Universities and Peter D. Hart
Research Associates, Inc. 2006); “Importance of Skills and Knowledge for College and Career
Readiness,” from The MetLife Survey of The American Teacher: Preparing Students for College and
Careers (MetLife, Inc. 2011); and Are They Really Ready to Work? Employers’ Perspectives on the
Basic Knowledge and Applied Skills of New Entrants to the 21st Century U.S. Workforce (The Conference
Board et al. 2006).
