Build a Diverse Group of Friends

Build a Diverse Group of Friends | Teacher Tools and Tips | Scoop.it
To grow as a person, it's important to go beyond our "comfort zone" of people and seek relationships with those who are wildly different from us.
Sharrock's insight:

We educators have difficulties expanding our horizons, networking for real professional growth. Maybe this is true for people, in general. After all, the author indicates what almost all of us believe, that “Every single person we choose to associate with brings out a different side of us. Therefore, the more diverse our group of friends is, the more dynamic and flexible we become as an individual.” But the proof is "in the pudding." We don't do this, really. there is even a name for our behavior: the similarity attraction effect. The author provides excellent instruction, "Be interested in people in general. Everyone has their own stories and peculiarities. When you approach everyone with the intent to get to know them and understand them, you’ll often find that most people are pretty damn awesome in their own way."

Are you using Google Docs? This post explores many of the options available to you in Google Docs including:

* Google Docs for Research - Look under Tools to access Research. As well as allowing you to research within Google Docs this tool streamlines " the process of creating hyperlinks and appropriately formatting citations."

* Google Docs for Collaborative Writing - Some of the features of this tool include sharing and commenting, built-in dictionary, smart spell check and grammar check, one click footnotes and citations, Easy Bib connection and revision history.

The Common Core stresses the need for students to collaborate. Google Docs may assist your students in the process. The post also contains quite a few screenshots.
