Several months ago the PBS News Hour did a fantastic segment on self-control and the marshmallow experiment (I’ve included a link to the video and an explanation of my lesson plan at My Best Posts About Helping Students Develop Their Capacity For Self-Control).

But an article I saw flashed briefly on the Colbert show prompted me to do a Google Search, and I found two additional pieces that might be useful with students.

Predicting Kids’ Success … with Marshmallows
is an article and video from CBS News.

New Marshmallow Test: Why Andrew Weiner Would Fail is an article from CBS.
