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.

Your Performance Goes Up When You Do This 1 Odd Thing, Study Finds is an article (with a strange headline) in Inc about a study I’ve previously posted about finding that the performance of mentors improves, as well as the work of mentees.

My other posts on this study are: Another Study Finds That Student Mentors Giving Advice Helps THEM Do Better and Being A Mentor At Our School May Have Resulted In Improved Grades For The…Mentors. Here’s a related one: Here’s An Opportunity For Students To Write For An Authentic Audience: Give Advice To Their Younger Selves.
