Each week, I publish a post containing three or four particularly useful resources on classroom instruction, and you can see them all here.

Here are this week’s picks:
Questioning That Deepens Comprehension is a great post by Doug Fisher and Nancy Frey. It appears in Edutopia. I’m adding it to The Best Resources On “Close Reading” — Help Me Find More.
Teaching Propaganda Using Political Ads is from Middleweb. I’m adding it to The Best Online Resources For Helping Students Learn To Write Persuasive Essays.
How to change someone’s mind, according to science is from The Washington Post. I’m adding it to the same list.
