I often write about research studies from various field 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:
Why you should give thanks this Thursday—and always is a review of recent research on gratitude, and appeared in Scientific American. I’m adding it to The Best Resources On “Gratitude.”
Cut Through the “Stickiness” of Prior Beliefs is a somewhat interesting article that contains an terrific chart/infographic reflecting some recent research. I’m adding it to The Best Online Resources For Helping Students Learn To Write Persuasive Essays.
Assessing creativity is from The Blue Skunk Blog. I’m adding it to The Best Sources Of Advice On Helping Students Strengthen & Develop Their Creativity.
Science Reveals the Power of a Handshake is from Science Daily. I’m adding it to The Best Resources On The Importance Of Building Positive Relationships With Students.
