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:
Infants Can Learn the Value of Perseverance by Watching Adults is from The Atlantic, and it seems to me it’s a reasonable extrapolation that our students can learn the same when we make mistakes and model learning from them. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About The Importance Of “Grit”
How children’s self-control has changed in the past 50 years is from The Washington Post. I’m adding it to Best Posts About Helping Students Develop Their Capacity For Self-Control.
Quiz Yourself: How Much Do You Know About Social-Emotional Learning is from Ed Week.
The Mindful Student is from The Behavioral Scientist. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About Mindfulness In The Classroom.
Stanford’s Carol Dweck wins new $3.8 million prize for education research is from The San Francisco Chronicle.
National Commission on Social, Emotional, and Academic Development, a project of the Aspen Institute, came out with a report on SEL which educators should be aware of but, speaking frankly, I’m not sure if people already familiar with SEL are going to get anything out of it. You can read an article about the project at Ed Week.
LISTEN: Growth mindset, cognitive load and the role of research in your classroom – Dylan Wiliam offers his thoughts is from TES. In it, he repeats a comment I’ve previously quoted many times:
“I have often said, what is interesting is not what works in education, but under what circumstances does it work.”
I’m adding this video clip to The Best Resources For Learning About The Importance Of “Grit”:
