June Education NewsletterBy Vicki Zakrzewski | June 11, 2013 | 0 comments
From how to help students develop purpose to an interview with the creator of the World Peace Game, here's a round-up of our recent education content.
This week, I wrote an article for George Lucas’s Edutopia on another use for awe in the classroom: helping kids find a sense of purpose, which research indicates is one of the best things teachers can do for their students.
Also, a couple of weeks ago I had the chance to interview visionary teacher John Hunter about his inspiring new book, World Peace and Other 4th Grade Achievements.
Finally, Phil Zimbardo, legendary psychologist and president of the Heroic Imagination Project, outlined seven steps to a meaningful life in this uplifting commencement speech.
