Cool School: Camelback Desert School
Camelback Desert School is this week's Cool School! Links to Learning preschool curriculum is an integrated series of programs for children 2-5yrs that engages the child's senses, mind and body. Links to Learning incorporates fun, challenging, easily understood and meaningful activities to develop confidence, self-reliance and important social skills needed for success in kindergarten and beyond.
 
Research shows that students need more than just academic content knowledge to achieve their goals as they progress through school and into their careers. We have created dynamic and innovative projects that incorporate core content and skills they'll need for the 21st century, including:
 
-Communication
-Critical & Systems Thinking
-Information & Media Literacy
-Creativity & Intellectual Curiosity
-Interpersonal & Collaborative Skills
-Social Responsibility
-Accountability
-Self-Direction
-Problem Solving
 
21st century themes are divided and weaved into four quarters:
-Global Awareness
-Environmental Studies
-Systems
-Leadership
 
Teachers find ways to include these themes throughout all of the content areas, and specialized projects are embedded in each quarter. Project-based learning enables students to apply what they have learned in their classrooms to solve complex problems. Students work on authentic problems that do not have a right answer, and engage in active inquiry to look at each issue form multiple perspectives. This ability to share, interact and work in classroom and regional or national teams offers a rich learning environment where students are challenged to solve real-world problems.

Wheat Belly Doc
We know carbs make us gain weight, but what are they doing to the rest of our bodies?
According to New York Times best seller, Dr. William Davis, grains are directly associated with Cataracts, stiffening of arteries, skin wrinkling, sore arthritic joints, inflamed arteries, belly fat, increased blood sugar, a cloudy mind, our increased need for regulatory medications and much, much more.
 
The problem is, products made from modern wheat contain forms of gliadin proteins, glutenins, wheat germ ag-glutinin, and other proteins never before encountered by humans until recently. And we are beginning to show it.
 
Eliminating grains on the other hand, will eventually lead to new levels of energy, mental clarity, a better mood, better endocrine and metabolic health, improved physical performance and exceptionally better health overall; not to mention a dramatic reduction in weight, and much more.
 
Dr. Davis examines the hidden dangers of a grain rich diet, and explains how eliminating grains can help rid you of many of your ailments and put you on the path to better overall health.
 
 
 
Halloween Cup4Cup
Chef Lena Kwak, developed Cup4Cup while serving as Research and Development Chef in the kitchen of the famed French Laundry in Yountville, CA. She and her mentor, Chef and Owner Thomas Keller, knew they had stumbled upon something special when a guest tasted Lena's gluten-free brioche and cried with joy because she hadn't tasted bread in seven years. They knew this was a product that had to be shared.
 
Today, Cup4Cup isn't just great-tasting gluten-free flour, it's a great-tasting flour for everyone. Our name comes from Cup4Cup's ingenious ability to replace all-purpose flour and whole wheat flour (with our new Wholesome Cup4Cup) in traditional recipes, cup for cup, which makes it simple to translate your favorite recipes for everything from cookies to biscuits, cakes to quick breads, and never know the difference.
