Empathy for struggling kids

See if you can see what's really going on.

Even in countries in which children as a group enjoy many comforts, there is still diversity with respect to childhood experiences.
 
Children of color, children with special needs and kids with ADHD are often disproportionately asked to leave preschool programs (public, private, and even tax-exempt religious ones!!). 

Sad really.  Because these are exactly the kinds of kids who need love, support, learning opportunities, early education, and safety the most.

I found this to be an interesting read:

I wish I had a chalkboard

This semester, I have been plagued with tech issues in the classroom where I teach.  The students have been good sports about it, but it's getting old and throws me off a bit when it comes to presenting information (I like a combination of in-class demos, videos, lectures, powerpoint, discussions, etc. that require ease of moving back and forth.)

sigh

Alas, no chalkboard in the room, but we do have a whiteboard and markers.

Anyway, here's a bit of Simpsons humor related to old school chalkboards:

Sometimes doing something that takes a lot of practice is rewarding

and cool :-)

I was just having a conversation with someone about how the mastery of something that has taken a lot of hard work, countless hours of practice, and sometimes painful failure is quite rewarding.

I am unlikely to attempt mountain unicycling, fire breathing, aerial gymnastics, and other dare devil hobbies.  But I do recall a sense of accomplishment when I finally gained some level of proficiency in juggling after I literally clubbed myself many  MANY times.  And I fondly recall back when I was a grad student, mastering some martial arts techniques after (embarrassingly) punching myself in the face really hard during my first lesson.  And I can't tell you how many times my desserts could have been featured as a comical cake wreck or the frustration of popping THE balloon in a sculpturetha... more »

But eventually, we get better.  And things get easier.

Interesting Logic

Ah, this one is a keeper!  I must share this with my research methods students.

A shout out to +Cheryl Ann MacDonald  for the post.

Irrational & Illogical Thinking Mechanisms

➨   Should Statements can be harmful and demotivating. People can replace them with thoughts of "It would be good to exercise 3 times a week". At times, should statements exhibit the fallacy of the false dilemma which is either-or type of reasoning. Sometimes, should statements reflect the fallacy of unacceptable premise or belief, and occurs when they accept an association that is unjustified by the evidence. One example is a depressed person thinking "Anyone, who feels angry with their friend, is a bad friend and should feel very guilty. 
➨   Emotional Reasoning is when someone believes that a negative feeling about something reflects reality, when false.  For example, a person who feels as if they have nothing to offer the world, when not true.  Feelings are important and very compelling at times reflecting reality. When feelings fail to reflect reality, some believe what they sense anyway and believe a conclusion even though the evidence is lacking. 
➨   All or Nothing thinking involves a tendency to see in just black and white. For example, "Either I'm a total success, or I'm a total failure."  This type of thinking is a logical fallacy, because they are assuming that only two options exist when there are multiple. 
➨   Disqualifying the Positive This fallacy occurs when people overlook or ignore relevant evidence supporting a different conclusion. A depressed person may think no one likes them, and they discuss this with their friend, who says "I like you, and so does your family".  This is evidence that the belief is false, but the depressed person persists in this thinking.  This kind of thinking is an example of the fallacy of suppressed evidence.

Psych Research and Social Media

Mainly sharing this because the topic comes up almost every semester in the research methods course that I teach.

Worth a read and a thought from those who teach students who are required to read research and critically think about it.

A shout out to +Daniel Estrada  for sharing this.

// There seem to be two distinct worries at play that might be usefully pulled apart. First, there is the tendency for social media to propagate pop science journalism with little regard for credibility or scientific merit. Second, there is a question of the impact of bad science journalism on the quality of scientific research. 

These are logically distinct; we can imagine an world where popular journalism has no impact on scientific research, but is merely an epiphenomenon of that research. In this case social media might misinform lots of people about the state of scientific knowledge, but that knowledge itself remains uncompromised. It isn't the end of the world if a nonspecialist is misinformed about the details of cutting edge psychological research.  

In the real world, science journalism probably does have some impact on science research. Your discussion is framed in terms of increased exposure to bad journalism among nonspecialist academics, but this seems like a needlessly indirect approach. Even if we establish increased exposure, it's an open question of how that exposure impacts their assessment of the field of psychology, and whether this assessment influences their own research. It is possible that the constant stream of bad science journalism has an overall negligible impact on academics online, being part of the constant background hum in social media that we've habituated to. Increased exposure might just hasten this desensitization and reduce the impact of bad science journalism, which would amount to the denial of your hypothesis. 

There seems to be a more direct approach already mentioned in this thread, namely the close association between funding and "impact factor". I doubt social media has a bigger influence on academic research than measures of impact used to allocate funds, and social media (and social networks more generally) have a clear and demonstrable influence on measures of academic impact. But in this case it is hard to blame social media for compromising the quality of scientific research. Rather, the failure would sit with the administrators using social media to guide the direction of research, thereby establishing exactly the feedback relationship we'd hope to avoid.

I Need This

Well, this goes on the list of things I wish I had created.

I admit to using a hot glue gun (with glue) on gingerbread houses that were for decorative purposes only.   If I am going to eat the house, though, I prefer tempered (white) chocolate to hold the walls in place.  I usually use a bag or  bottle to apply the chocolate. 

But that's only because I never thought of doing this :-)

Old Man Of The Pride

His name is Kenya and he is a very old man now, he still leads his pride but everyday life can be a struggle for him. Rather than him have to fight for his place the park maintains the order so he can outlive the rest of his days as the head. 

I like to think he has many years still in him, he has so much experience he still needs to pass down.

Being Thankful for the Kindness of Others

Sometimes it really is the little things, like saying hello :-)

I like the idea of sitting for a moment and reflecting on random, out of nowhere experiences in which a stranger does something kind for someone. 

True, you've seen posts that focus on more major random acts of kindness, like paying for groceries or buying a meal or toys or something like that.  But little things can also make someone's day, especially when they are going through a tough time or even something simpler, like they just want their kid to be like everyone else... 

A friend of mine who teaches a diverse group of kids shared this post on another social network, and, as the mother of a child with special needs (autism), I found this story of thankfulness quite beautiful, so I had to share it:http... more »

Minnesota Food!

I was recently talking with someone about green bean casserole.  Yeah, you know the popular Thanksgiving side dish that is made with green beans, a can of soup and fried onion. 

Who thought of that one?!?

Anyway, we Minnesotans have some delightful  specialties that you won't typically find elsewhere.  Some are WONDERFUL (like the tater tot casserole-- I make a vegetarian version in the winter that stays with you for days)

other dishes... well, see for yourself!

The Importance of Proofreading Your Writing

Are you on the write track with respect to your to that paper you wrote?

Next week, my students must come to class with a draft of their final research paper.   I not only make them read and revise their own papers, but also the paper of one of their classmates. 

And I even make them read a overly long post on the importance of reading and revising your writing. 

Because it is important.

Point of View

In Hitchhiker's Guide To the Galaxy , there is a ingenious weapon called the point of view gun.  It allows you to target someone and enable them to see things from your perspective.

I have often thought that a lot of arguments could be more quickly resolved if only we could see the situation in the way that the "difficult" (or different) person we are interacting with sees it.

Apparently, though, the pen is a mighty weapon. 

This op ed describes how writing a 2-5 paragraph essay might help people of different classes understand one another a little better.

Chocolate Ganache

Ganache is delicious and easier than most baking newbies think.  I typically use +Alton Brown's recipe (http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/ganache-frosting-recipe.html except I don't use a food processor, I just break it up in the package and dump it in because I'm lazy and it works for me) but saw this post come up on my baking blog list just now: http://www.cupcakeproject.com/2014/10/how-to-make-the-perfect-ganache-for-everything-lessons-learned-with-50-of-chocolate-and-a-half-gallon-of-cream.html

That's a good summary of different kinds of ganaches for different purposes.

I happen to be making a pile of dark ganache tomorrow for Peo's birthday cake.  Ganache is great for carved cakes because you can harden it fast in a fridge.  I would make my dark chocolate buttercream (http://www.eat-the-evidence.com/recipe-archive/dark-chocolate-buttercream/) but I don't have a stand mixer while we're over here so ganache is easier.___Chocolate Ganache

Accidental Plagiarism

 "I hate when people steal my ideas before I have them!"

That is perhaps one of the best things (or at least one of my favorite things)  I ever heard my grad school advisor say.

Have you ever used a literary allusion for your talk...

but someone else used it well over a decade before you did?
or...

 Have you ever read something and then later presented it as your own idea and even thought it was YOUR idea?

I talked a bit about the idea of "accidental plagiarism" in my writing course this week.  In general, I think students really try to credit their source and do a good job writing papers for their classes. 

Sometimes, though, words or ideas that you THINK are yours ... well, they aren't !

The Psychology of Cryptomnesia: How Unconscious Plagiarism Works.

Teaching Tips

Yesterday I shared a post dedicated to the awesome undergraduates in my research methods class and their knowledge of science and how it do SCIENCE the right way. 

Today, this one goes out to the graduate students who attend my teaching seminar.  They will be teaching teachers, future researchers, parents and people who work with children.   And maybe they, like me,  will even be teaching teachers of teachers. 

If that is your job, you should try to do it well :-)

According to this post, "a record of quality teaching is usually required for tenure and promotion."  I always wrestle with what it means to be a high-quality teacher.

Hmmm...my undergraduates have a writing assignment that affords them all the time, money, collaborators and resources in the world to answer a question The Right Way (using science and solid methodology).  Perhaps I'll let them operationalize "good teaching" and then develop a measure to assess it.

Exercise Helps

I came across this when I was looking through the newsfeed of another social network, and it reminded me of a conversation I had during parents night with the P.E. teacher at my kid's school. 

http://online.wsj.com/articles/exercise-helps-children-with-adhd-in-study-1410216881

My son has attention issues related to autism, and he works better in the academic portions of his class right after he's participated in some sort of focused physical activity. 

Though it works for my kid and some of his peers, I'd like to see more high-quality research on this topic and other topics related to physical activity in children with special needs (and typically developing children). 

And maybe I'm thinking of this because I have a long commute into work and spend far too many hours sitting...

When I Heard the Learn'd Astronomer

Something about  +Liz Krane 's marvelous post made me think of that poem by Walt Whitman. 

I'll chime in with another vote for Feynman's notion that  _science only adds to beauty_

Some people say science takes away from the beauty of the world around us. But I'm with Feynman on this one: science only adds to beauty.

Not too long ago, I shared a post about how science may have solved an old mystery (http://goo.gl/yZH8AB), and someone wrote this:

"They should have left it a mystery. Thanks for making one less thing absolutely magical. Try using your resources for something fruitful."

I think Feynman's quote is the best way to respond to that comment:

"I have a friend who’s an artist and has sometimes taken a view which I don’t agree with very well. He’ll hold up a flower and say “look how beautiful it is,” and I’ll agree. Then he says “I as an artist can see how beautiful this is but you as a scientist take this all apart and it becomes a dull thing,” and I think that he’s kind of nutty."

"First of all, the beauty that he sees is available to other people and to me too, I believe. I can appreciate the beauty of a flower. At the same time, I see much more about the flower than he sees. I could imagine the cells in there, the complicated actions inside, which also have a beauty."

"I mean it’s not just beauty at this dimension, at one centimeter; there’s also beauty at smaller dimensions, the inner structure, also the processes. The fact that the colors in the flower evolved in order to attract insects to pollinate it is interesting; it means that insects can see the color. It adds a question: does this aesthetic sense also exist in the lower forms? Why is it aesthetic? All kinds of interesting questions which the science knowledge only adds to the excitement, the mystery and the awe of a flower."

"It only adds. I don’t understand how it subtracts."

I loved Guardians of the Galaxy for so many reasons, but this story is very sweet and only adds to the awesomeness of the film :-)

Happy Friday folks

Back to School

HAHA!  2014 version of #2 and #7 just crack me up:

Classroom supplies... and then school supplies.  My kid is in multiple classrooms with various therapies for his autism, so the former ended up being close to $100. 

The latter...  Well, I had to make a separate trip for those, and I didn't even ask the cashier about the cost of them... I just handed over my credit card.  You do what you have to do because education is important.

Regardless of whether you have a typically developing child or a child with special needs, back to school time is an traditional late summer ritual for parents.   I have to admit that it was a nice (okay, maybe "nice" isn't the right word) bonding experience trying to figure out what in the heck "aclear, ... more »

And I don't drink, but if I did , I would toast that mom who just bought a giant stack of sports equipment for all of her boys. 

May they all have a great season and an awesome year!   Many thanks to all the teachers, parents, parent volunteers, kids, and people with a vested interest in high-quality education out there that make a community a great place to live!___

Teaching for Learning

As instructors, we hope to give our students skills that will help them in the real work, their future jobs or in classes they might take later on down the road. 

+Laura Gibbs  said so well what many of us want to express as we begin teaching, so a shout out to her .

Very cute cartoon that I've seen in a few how to teach presentations.  It's the work of H. Schwadron, and here's where you can find more info about Schwadron's work:  http://schwadroncartoons.com/

As always during the Orientation Week, I had a few false Gradebook Declarations this morning. It's not that people intend to cheat. The problem is instead that they are in a hurry, or they are bored, or both; they think it doesn't matter whether they do good work or not; they don't read the instructions... all kinds of reasons. And, sadly, we all know that those kinds of attitudes and behaviors are very much reinforced by how school works in general: students are usually overcommitted (and to help students make more realistic choices, we should call this a 6-hour class or 9-hour class, not a 3-hour class — the designation should be based on workload, not seat time)... students may end up in required courses that bore them or else they enroll in a course because it fits their time schedule, not because of any real interest... it often doesn't really matter one way or the other what kind of work they are doing, and they often don't even know about the real quality of their work because there is no feedback at all or only the unhelpful mumbojumbo that is ABCDF... and there is such a lack of variety in the tasks that they are asked to do (see cartoon below) that they are not in the habit of needing to read instructions — there is never anything really new to do. So, I try to make sure my classes offer something new and worthwhile to the students, but it can be bumpy at first, especially for students who have no time or no interest and who are instead doing what the university tells them to do: jump through the Gen. Ed. hoop so you can graduate...
As some of us were discussing yesterday re: trying to "unschool" inside a very traditional school setting, it's not always easy! :-)
