This article contains plot details for the film Dallas Buyers Club. Trans representation on film is pretty abysmal, ranging from mildly problematic to dangerously ignorant and hateful. The movies have given us very few trans characters at all, and those that are not blatantly offensive are often still problematic in subtler ways. Where does Dallas Buyers Club fall on the spectrum of trans representation in cinema?
Asking questions for science and defining problems for engineering 2. Developing and using models 3. Planning and carrying out investigations 4. Analyzing and interpreting data 5. Using mathematics and computational thinking 6.

Engaging in argument from evidence 8. Obtaining, evaluating, and communicating information Throughout the discussion, we consider practices both of science and engineering.
In many cases, the practices in the two fields are similar enough that they can be discussed together. In other cases, however, they are considered separately.
Engaging in the practices of science helps students understand how scientific knowledge develops; such direct involvement gives them an appreciation of the wide range of approaches that are used to investigate, model, and explain the world.
Engaging in the practices of engineering likewise helps students understand the work of engineers, as well as the links between engineering and science. Scientific and Engineering Practices. A Framework for K Science Education: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Core Ideas.

Students may then recognize that science and engineering can contribute to meeting many of the major challenges that confront society today, such as generating sufficient energy, preventing and treating disease, maintaining supplies of fresh water and food, and addressing climate change.
Any education that focuses predominantly on the detailed products of scientific labor—the facts of science—without developing an understanding of how those facts were established or that ignores the many important applications of science in the world misrepresents science and marginalizes the importance of engineering.
Understanding How Scientists Work The idea of science as a set of practices has emerged from the work of historians, philosophers, psychologists, and sociologists over the past 60 years. This work illuminates how science is actually done, both in the short term e.
Seeing science as a set of practices shows that theory development, reasoning, and testing are components of a larger ensemble of activities that includes networks of participants and institutions [ 1011 ], specialized ways of talking and writing [ 12 ], the development of models to represent systems or phenomena [ ], the making of predictive inferences, construction of appropriate instrumentation, and testing of hypotheses by experiment or observation [ 16 ].
Our view is that this perspective is an improvement over previous approaches in several ways.community home-based care in resource-limited settings a framework for action published collaboratively by the cross cluster initiative on home-based long-term care.

This paper explains the conclusions of the work carried out by the Standards Framework Review Working Party and their implications for the framework.
It also provides some explanation of the existing framework and how the different aspects of it fit together.
