The solution, on the other hand, is not to continue with common strategies simply because they are benign and comfortable, but rather to evolve fair and reasonable ways of evaluating a teacher success with students....   [tags: expectations, feedback, evaluations, standards] 2917 words

Heat and Temperature Essay - Relation of Heat and Kinetic Theory of Matter 1 The Kinetic Theory of Matter declares that particles of matter in all states are in vigorous motion. And this theory can help us predict heat transfer. Unmistakably the transfer of heat is the kinetic energy caused by the jittering of atoms or molecules in a substance. The faster the particles move, more heat is produced and the farther apart the molecules can spread. This theory explains heat transfer by conduction. Thermal energy flows from the warmer object and through the cooler one warming it up....   [tags: Physics]
