School Writing Vs. Authentic Writing

School Writing Vs. Authentic Writing | TYC Professional Readings | Scoop.it
by Ken Lindblom Many students dislike writing in school, and it’s no wonder.  Five-paragraph essay formats, predictable essay questions on books they didn’t choose to read, all written for a teacher (or faceless exam scorer) who knows more about the subject than they do.  Who would find this “schoolish writing”--as Anne Elrod Whitney has called…

The Neuroscience of Perseverance

The Neuroscience of Perseverance | TYC Professional Readings | Scoop.it

To produce more dopamine, get in the habit of setting deadlines and completing goals in a timely manner. Create a daily schedule that includes self-imposed deadlines and stick to it! Use timers, calendars and peer pressure to keep you on track and condition yourself. Partner with a like-minded friend who has similar goals and make a pact that you will hold one another accountable to stay on deadline.
