- I was fascinated by the article What Google Learnedfrom Its Quest to Build the Perfect Team. So many differences that can be while the patterns the study found in teams/communities that worked was so interesting!
- I discovered this inspiring Ted Talk by Linda Cliatt-Wrayman:How to Fix a Broken School? Lead Fearlessly, Love Hard
- I enjoyed the BAM Radio episode with Angela Maiers on taking care of yourself as a teacher.
- I worry about what is happening to ideas such as growth mindset in schools. I thought this article, What Growth Mindset Actually Means, had some great insights:
- And this brilliant essay, Everybody’s Talking by Roger Sutton is worth the read. I think it is critical that we continue the conversations around diversity and Roger discusses the perspectives and beliefs we bring to the conversation. You can hear more from Roger Sutton on this and other issues in his recent podcast.
- I've been reading and thinking a great deal about the ways we are/are not supporting our young children's social and emotional development in schools and the world these days. This article Against the Sticker Chart reminded me of so many reasons rewards and punishment are not the way to go.
- And I have no idea how this article, How Elmo Ruined Sesame Street, ended up in my feed. I have always enjoyed Elmo but it was an interesting perspective on such a popular character important in children's lives.
- And I so loved this---50 Captivating Photos of Girls Going to School Around theWorld
- School Library Journal put out this great booklist, Something Beautiful: Titles For and About Latinos and there are so many titles I can't wait to read!And if you love Mo Willems, you'll be interested in reading about his Busy, Busy Year. Even though he is ending the Elephant and Piggie series, we have lots of other books to look forward to.
- My friend, Karen Szymusiak, wrote a great piece on her blog Talkworthy, called Committed Vs. Compelled. It is definitely worth a read if you missed it.
- And a new podcast episode on BustED Pencils with Nancie Attwell as she ends her year as the Global Teacher Prize winner.
- And I loved this piece discussing the important differences between academic and intellectual goals for young children: Lively Minds
