Friday Four 10/28
Here are four of my “favorite” finds from the past week.
- Recent article from the NYT (10/23) on several New York City private schools that are easing up on the amount of homework they are assigning.
- Article from the Wall Street Journal (10/26) on strategies that students can employ to maximize performance on high-stakes tests.
- Interesting post on the Psychology Today website “The Toxic Race to Perfection is Damaging Our Teens.” A good reminder for those of us who work with teens in high pressure independent schools.
- Blog post by Tom Whitby (@tomwhitby) “Social Media, More or Less” in which he makes the argument for inclusion of social media in the toolbox of all educators.
