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:
Study: Classroom-Management Fixes Work Best When Addressing Social-Emotional Needs is an Ed Week report about a new study on classroom management. I’m not sure if teachers are really going to learn much new from it. However, I’ve got to say that the report itself probably give the best review you’re going to find anywhere about classroom management research. I’m adding it to The Best Posts On Classroom Management.
Against the Sticker Chart: Priming kids to expect rewards for good behavior can harm their social skills in the long term. is from The Atlantic. There’s nothing new in it that hasn’t been discussed in hundreds of blog posts on this blog or in my books, but it does provide a nice and short overview of the dangers of extrinsic motivation.
What many parents and teachers don’t understand about ADHD in kids — Part 2 is from The Washington Post.
Help Student Writers Find the Best Evidence is from Middleweb. I’m adding it to The Best Online Resources For Helping Students Learn To Write Persuasive Essays.
Triptiks Can Rev Up Student-Driven Learning is from Middleweb.
I’m adding this first tweet to The Best Posts On Writing Instruction:
