I often write about research studies from various fields and how they can be applied to the classroom. I write individual posts about ones that I think are especially significant, and will continue to do so. However, so many studies are published that it’s hard to keep up. So I’ve started writing a “round-up” of some of them each week or every other week as a regular feature:
Understanding How the Brain Speaks Two Languages is from TIME Magazine. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning The Advantages To Being Bilingual.
Walk-to-burn-calorie menu ‘diet aid’ is from The BBC. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About Nutrition & Food Safety.
Being Sad Makes You More Impatient comes from The Harvard Business Review. It shares a study that found people who felt sad had great problems with self-control. I’m adding this to The Best Posts About Helping Students Develop Their Capacity For Self-Control.
Black Men’s College Success Depends on Grit, Not Just Grades, Study Finds is from Sarah Sparks at Education Week. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About The Importance Of “Grit.”
