Happy holidays! This month, I explored how awe-inspiring music, art, nature, and people can help students feel more connected to something larger than themselves—a timely subject for this season of unity and togetherness.
You might also enjoy another piece for the holidays: how teachers can help their students give more meaningful gifts.
And if you want to get into the holiday spirit, please consider supporting the Greater Good Science Center by joining or renewing as a member—and with a new or increased gift you can help a teacher attend our new Summer Institute!
Wishing you a holiday season filled with joy and peace.
