Words With Letters Covert
Studies show that most of us are visual learners. We remember and retain information more easily when presented in positive, fun images, and even more so when the images are vivid and colorful!
Scanning, Converting And Editing Text On The Go
These award-winning Word of the Day™ vocabulary cards are all of the above, but to take it a step further, the images are specially designed to look like the definition of the word of the day! The word “poisonous” has a skull and crossbones for an “x,” and “decoy” has fun camouflage letters with a duck decoy instead of the letter “d.” This fun, visually-linked style continues through all the cards, helping students create associations even for those who have difficulty remembering words. Definitions are also included at the back allowing students to discuss and self-examine.
There are many ways to incorporate Word of the Day™ into your daily routine. You can display and briefly discuss one vocabulary word each day in the vinyl pocket provided. In those few minutes, you’ll see a noticeable difference in your students’ performance! You can display cards with similar definitions along the pattern line, discussing subtle differences. Research has shown that learning words in combination helps improve retention. You can ask students to list synonyms and antonyms for the word of the day, use them in a sentence or determine a part of speech. If the word has several parts of speech, you can discuss how this might affect the definition. The possibilities are endless, and fit perfectly into any time constraint!
Each card is 4.25″ x 11″, printed on coated cardstock, and available in a base set of 180 cards or a booster set of 60. When you purchase the base set cards, we will include a vinyl pocket to display the word. of the Day™!If the address matches an existing account you will receive an email with instructions to reset your password

Cross Modal And Cross Language Activation In Bilinguals Reveals Lexical Competition Even When Words Or Signs Are Unheard Or Unseen
Climate variability has influenced the settlement and cultural activities of human populations for millennia, and our knowledge of the context of environmental drivers of migration can be inferred using paleolimnological techniques. We present a systematic map of the literature to understand the breadth of paleolimnological research on environmental change and its impact on subsistence cultures. We aim to illustrate how climate “pushes” and “pulls” have influenced human societies in the late-Holocene. A systematic search found 68 uniquely relevant studies that discussed ecological monitoring in the context of human settlement and migration, stress on the environment, and (or) climate change using paleolimonological methods. We identified three primary themes: where people live, how people live, and how people continue to live. Most of the studies took place in North America, within the last decade, and focused on diatoms, sediment characteristics, and climate. Topics included climate change reconstruction, human presence, human impact on the environment, subsistence strategies, and the importance of monitoring. We demonstrate the value of paleolimnological methods in understanding the timing of events, revealing long-term ecological trends, and providing baseline conditions for effective treatment and management objectives.
Changes in the natural environment challenge the resilience of societies, as environmental stressors can promote or inhibit adaptation to change (Diamond 2005). Food and livelihood security, in particular, can be threatened by unexpected and gradual environmental changes affecting cultural health and continuity in communities that must adapt to new conditions (Davies 1993; Newell et al. 2020). Adaptation can be defined as both short-term coping strategies and long-term adaptations in relation to environmental changes (Davies 1993). Climate change is often a driving force affecting the suitability or viability of an area that may “push” human groups to leave some areas or “pull” them to others (Friesen et al. 2020). For example, Carto et al. (2009) suggested that large-scale changes in climate during the last glacial cycle created hospitable conditions in Africa that led to one of the earliest migrations of humans to other regions of the world. Small-scale changes in climate can also have push and pull effects that influence the resilience of cultural practices and the ability to adopt new strategies (Van Aalst et al. 2008 ); Small fluctuations in rainfall, such as those observed in Amazonia for example, have allowed for the initiation of agricultural practices (Bush et al. 2000). The lasting effect of climate push or pull is felt globally and is particularly relevant for northern regions where poleward amplification of warming can amplify the effects of climate on cultural evolution (Wooller et al. 2018; Friesen et al. 2020).
Hunter-gatherer (subsistence) and sharing economies have been fundamental components of the culture, identity and sustainability of human societies throughout the history of the Pleistocene epoch (Stutz 2012). Various economies were based on hunting, fishing and gathering from the land, which naturally built on knowledge of weather processes and resilience to perturbations in the environment. As such, unexpected changes in the environment can affect the sharing economy and its dependent communities (Dinero 2013). For example, warming during the late Dorset presence in the Arctic (500–1500 AD) has been suggested to have strongly influenced the ability to practice subsistence activities (Temple and Stojanowski 2018). Temple and Stojanowski (2018) suggested that loss of sea ice reduced walrus populations and consequently changed hunting practices and diet. Currently, we are in the midst of observing warming in the Arctic that is fundamentally changing the functionality of the landscape, the ecosystem services it supports, and ultimately the activities northern communities can undertake (Williamson et al. 2009). Newell et al. (2020) noted the relationship between the health of modern Inuit and the health of the landscape, as the ability to hunt and perform cultural activities is essential for positive mental health and cultural continuity. Understanding how the Arctic has changed, and may be affected further, is therefore important for facilitating cultural continuity in a changing environment (Chambers et al. 2004; Newell et al. 2020).
Both oral and written history provide us with accounts of adaptation on a time scale of centuries, whereas knowledge of how environmental change has affected cultures over millennia is difficult to ascertain through traditional historical review. Paleolimnological methods can expand our knowledge of past environments, and the societies they supported, on a millennial scale. Paleolimnology is a science that relies on indicators deposited in lacustrine sediments through time (Walker 2001) and has been successfully used to understand the long-term perspectives of interactions between people and the environment (Brenner et al. 2002). Millennial-scale change has been inferred from chemical, physical, and biological indicators (Brenner et al. 2002), providing insight into key climatic periods such as the mid-Holocene (6000 years ago) and the Last Glacial Maximum (21 000 years ago). . Paleolimonological evidence also compliments archaeological studies (Hadley et al. 2010 ) that link large-scale climate forcing and human migration (Friesen et al. 2020 ).

Because the depositional environment of lakes incorporates aspects of atmospheric and terrestrial catchments through time, lakes are often referred to as custodians of environmental change (Schindler 2009; Williamson et al. 2009). This method is therefore a powerful tool that can be used to gain insight into aspects of human society in areas where lakes exist. Here, we conduct a systematic mapping exercise to identify how paleolimnological studies are valuable in reconstructing cultural groups in the face of environmental change. We aim to illustrate the potential of methods in paleolimonology to understand (i) the push and pull of climate and its impact on migration (where people settled), (iii) how it influenced, and still influences, human societies. Climate pushes and pulls and its impact on cultural practices (how people live), and (iii) cultural adaptation to climate pushes and pulls (how people adapt). We demonstrate the importance of paleolimnological research alongside traditional historical reviews in understanding the effects of environmental change.
Our research topic was informed by town hall discussions held 15-20 March 2019 with the community of Coral Harbour, Nunavut. Understanding the impact of climate change on subsistence practices requires synthesizing and mobilizing knowledge, through community-led engagement. The impact of climate on human society was recognized. We therefore used a systematic mapping approach (Hadway et al 2018) to outline and synthesize how paleolimonology methods are used in research related to the effects of climate change on cultural groups. The scope, scope, and nature of the literature were used to identify gaps in the context of human settlement reconstruction and research.
