Seeing as I read and lurk around the internet much more than I produce content, might as well make this a regular feature.
- Not a blog post, but I can’t get over this tweet about the everyday applications of ethos, logos and pathos!
- Interesting discussion on the merits of handwriting v. typing in teaching students the craft of writing…
- …and another on the merits of writing and blogging as a teacher
- A few posts on memory: one from Dylan William (read this one, if you read nothing else linked here), one on designing a curriculum to help build memory, and one on a classroom application of spaced repetition (I really like how it demonstrates to the students how this strategy works)
- Read this just for the bit on tepid tea
- The role of teacher-student relationships in teaching, and how to build them
- An extract from Carl Hendrick’s new book
- An argument for checking understanding of content before moving on to more complex questions
- Martin Robinson’s excellent series on curriculum; I eagerly await the next post!
- In time for Halloween, one post on how to write scary monsters, and another listing quirky horror stories (of the latter, I recommend Over the Garden Wall)
- Two from JSTOR Daily, on social media child stars and whether we should read the Bible
- This post on how retrieval practice can support far transfer is a year old, but I only just discovered it now
- And, finally, a caution against rushing to implement new ideas in education
