Alice Mercer just sent a bookmark meme my way. The meme says I’m supposed to list the latest six bookmarks on my “Favorites” list. However, she also sent along a caveat that mine had to be ones I haven’t blogged about, and she added that it didn’t have to be six.
So, here goes:
* Smithsonian interview with Richard Lerner, who challenges the traditional view of “troubled adolescents.” A very positive and helpful perspective. I’m interested in seeing his book that’s coming out in October.
* How Much Is A College Degree Worth? This article and chart shows the latest annual income differentials between workers with different school backgrounds.
* Dealing With Difficult Students is a one-page sheet from Marvin Marshall, my favorite writer on classroom management. It’s a very positive approach to discipline.
* Entertainment Weekly’s “Lost” webpage: Not exactly education-related, but I am a “Lost” fan. I typically have to read episode recaps after I watch each show since I don’t “get” a fair amount that goes on. Since the new season doesn’t start until January, I figure this website will give me my regular “fix” until then.
I’m going to now send this meme to Christina Nevin, Marian Thacher, and Barry Bakin. Lucky them….
Thanks, Larry. I’ll reply to the meme tomorrow evening. Sounds like you’ve got a lot of good bookmarks. I’ll check them out later.
Wow, I’m slow! Just read your comment on my blog. OK, this will be on my list for the weekend.
