I’ve recently begun this weekly post where I’ll be sharing resources I’m adding to The Best Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Resources or other related “Best” lists:
Daniel Pink on Incentives and the Two Types of Motivation is from Farnam Street blog. There’s nothing new in the piece, but it does give a nice summary of the difference between intrinsic and extrinsic motivation. I’m adding it to The Best Posts & Articles On “Motivating” Students.
Replication Project Investigates Self-Control as Limited Resource is from The Association For Psychological Science. I’ve previously shared about this study (see The Best Posts About Helping Students Develop Their Capacity For Self-Control). I like this link because it also includes critiques of it from researchers who I know and respect.
Social-Emotional Learning: States Collaborate to Craft Standards, Policies is from Ed Week, and has me – and others – a bit concerned. Here’s a tweet voicing my doubts, too:
Social emotional STANDARDS? Let’s hope this potentially valuable focus doesn’t turn into NCLB style data obsession. https://t.co/ga79rNZWSz
