Dr. Walter Mischel, the creator of the famous Marshmallow Test to measure self-control, has just published a book and, in addition to the interview I did with him last week for Education Week Teacher, many other excellent pieces on his work have just been published.
I’ve been writing about his week for years, and you can find all those posts and many others at The Best Posts About Helping Students Develop Their Capacity For Self-Control, including the related lesson I do with my students.
Here are some of the best interviews that have appeared over the past few days, along with a few “extras.” Dr. Mischel is appearing on The Colbert Report tonight, but the video isn’t up on the Colbert site at this time I originally publish this post. Assuming I think it’s useful, I’ll add it in the morning (It’s now been added):
What the Marshmallow Test Really Teaches About Self-Control is from The Atlantic.
7 things marshmallows teach us about self-control is from Vox.
This blurb on the Marshmallow Test book is so meta. If you wait 20 minutes, do you get 2 books? pic.twitter.com/Q9ZibHXHhy
