Dr. Walter Mischel, creator of the famous marshmallow test used by many of us in classroom lessons, is writing a book that will be published in September.

It’s titled The Marshmallow Test: Mastering Self-Control.

I’ve written many posts over the years about his work and how I apply it in the classroom. The first one was titled “I Like This Lesson Because It Make Me Have a Longer Temper” and you can see all the rest at The Best Posts About Helping Students Develop Their Capacity For Self-Control.

I’ll be publishing an interview with Dr. Mischel over at my Ed Week blog over the summer.

Here’s a recent video of Dr. Mischel talking to Charlie Rose about the marshmallow experiment (he makes some particularly interesting comments in the last two minutes). Below that is the TED Talk video about it I use in my lesson:
