AbstractThis article chronicles the principal changes which have occurred in the area of international security and which have contributed to the apparition of the expression ‘human security’. From a historical point of view, the principal documents and reports that have consolidated the use of this expression are described, and, at the same time, the two main schools of application and promotion of human security are studied: the Canadian and Japanese schools. Likewise, two more reports that have contributed to the expansion and use of the expression are analysed: “The Responsibility to Protect” and “A Human Security Doctrine for Europe”. Finally, the article indicates what the principal challenge is for the application of human security to be consolidated in current debates on international security.

PALS - Performance Assessment Links in Science1999-01PALS is an on-line, standards-based, continually updated resource bank of science performance assessment tasks indexed via the National Science Education Standards (NSES) and various other standards frameworks. The tasks, collected from numerous sources, include student directions and response forms, administration procedures, scoring rubrics, examples of student work, and technical quality data calculated from field testing. On-line rater training packets have also been created for some tasks. PALS is supported by a grant from the Elementary, Secondary, and Informal Education (ESIE) Division (Grant #: ESI-9730651) of the National Science Foundation.

NASA Earth Observatory: Biomes (title provided or enhanced by cataloger)This National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) website allows students to investigate biomes and then test their knowledge by completing missions. The site provides basic data about each biome such as temperature, precipitation, vegetation, location, description and links. Biomes discussed include coniferous forest, temperate deciduous forest, desert, grassland, rainforest, shrubland and tundra. The two missions (available at beginner and advanced levels) are designed to teach students about the relationship between temperature and precipitation and plants in biomes. A teacher resource guide provides details about goals, expected outcomes, extension ideas, and hands-on activities.
