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.

Finally, check out “Best” Lists Of The Week: Social Emotional Learning Resources.

Here are this week’s picks:

Reducing socioeconomic disparities in the STEM pipeline through student emotion regulation is from PNAS.

Creative Differences: The Benefits Of Reaching Out To People Unlike Ourselves is from NPR.

I’ve written in the past about an exercise researchers developed to help students identify the most important values in their lives, and why it can be so effective in enhancing student motivation (see New Research Finds That Simple Writing Exercise About Personal Values Can Have A Big Impact). I share in detail how to do the activity and, in fact, just did it last week in class. It’s easy to do, and now Character Lab has made it even easier by creating free downloadable hand-outs for teachers to use.

Everyone Can Learn Mathematics to High Levels: The Evidence from Neuroscience that Should Change our Teaching is by Jo Boaler. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Showing Students That They Make Their Brain Stronger By Learning.
