Earlier this month, and earlier this year, Professor Sian Beilock released two widely publicized studies — one on the causes of math anxiety among students and the other a related one on “choking” under pressure. The both included potential interventions, including “taking 10 minutes before a high-stakes situation to write about goals and worries.”
I thought it might be useful to bring together a few posts on the studies, since anxiety and stress among students is certainly not limited to math. This “The Best…” list can be looked at as a supplement to The Best Resources For Learning About Teens & Stress.
