Some Good Finds

            Great read about living books and science.  Be sure to follow her link to see more about their science narration notebooks – these are so inspiring to me.
            Last week’s CiRCE podcast was another winner for me – I will be referring back to it.  Many of the suggestions for teaching writing that were given in the course of the conversation were very CM in nature, although CM terminology wasn’t explicitly used.
            Why sticker charts and variations thereof don’t work. 
            This article is long, but worth the read – basically the methods CM outlined 100 years ago really ARE more effective than the methods you see typically used in classrooms.
            This sums up some of the conclusions that I’ve drawn about CM style habit-training.  Glad to see someone so experienced and respected in the CM world confirm my thoughts.
