The Psychology of Youth Sports: Helping Teens Believe In Themselves

The Psychology of Youth Sports: Helping Teens Believe In Themselves | Historically Thinking | Scoop.it

"Psychological studies on the value of youth sports offer broad insights into child development and often contradict one another. Since no one child is exactly like another, parents who understand the benefits and pitfalls of sports and who pay attention to the individual needs of their children are more likely to raise kids that thrive in life. Generally, studies indicate three important aspects of sports participation that affect positive youth development - intensity, continuity, and balance. A combination of all three offers the greatest benefits to kids." | via Psychology Today

Historical Thinking | The Historical Thinking Project | Historically Thinking | Scoop.it

What should students know after 12 years of studying history in school? What should they be able to do with their knowledge? Surely they should have more than an accumulation of memorized facts to show for years of study. Students need to meet the challenge of understanding their own lives in the historical context of past decades, centuries and millennia.

For the Fussiest of Students~A Crash Course in World History on YouTube | Historically Thinking | Scoop.it

Give John Green 40 weeks, and Green will give you a playful and highly visual crash course in world history, taking you from the beginning of human civilization 15,000 years ago through to our modern age. If you’re not familiar with him, Green is a bestselling author of several young adult books (Looking for Alaska, An Abundance of Katherines, and Paper Towns). He has quick paced but informational videos from the beginning of time onwards-sure to catch the interest of the most fussiest of students.

Want to brush up on your own understanding of world history? Ok, for students as well, but John Green sure does talk fast.

Erin Kelly's curator insight, April 6, 8:49 PM

John and Hank Green's 'Crash Course' is a great learning tool, to be used in a complimentary manner with other classroom material, possibly as a study aid. Fast-paced and engaging, students could utilise 'Crash Course World History' as a study tool or refresher. The channel also covers Literature, Biology, Physics and other subjects. A fresh perspective on the same information can never hurt.
