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.
