Cognitive Learning Styles in the Student-Centered Classroom A few weeks ago, a commercial came on TV that immediately caught both my husband’s and my attention.

Before each attempt to hit the ball, he would yell, “I’m the greatest hitter in the world!” How to Create a Press Kit for Your Business You may have heard the term press kit and may have even received a press kit for something. Although the form and function of a press kit can vary greatly by industry, the accepted definition of one is: "A package of promotional material provided to members of the press to brief them, especially about a product, service, or candidate." Because there's so much variety, let's look at the actual components that can make up a press kit, and how to assemble one that gives your product or service the best chance of free publicity, also known as earned media. If you do your press kit correctly, you will see a return many times greater than your initial investment, especially if the kit gets your product or service airtime on news stations, or write-ups online and in print media outlets.
Pocket “Real self-esteem is an integration of an inner value with things in the world around you,” Anna Deavere Smith wrote in her invaluable advice to young artists. But how does one master the intricacies of that integration? That’s what legendary Chinese-American martial artist, philosopher, and filmmaker Bruce Lee (November 27, 1940–July 20, 1973) explores in one of the pieces collected in Bruce Lee: Artist of Life (public library) — the invaluable compendium of his never-before-published private letters, notes, essays, and poems that also gave us the origin of his famous metaphor for resilience.

That becomes particularly annoying when you attend a conference or a learning seminar and find yourself forgetting the entire session just days later. But then my colleague told me about the Ebbinghaus Forgetting Curve, a 100-year-old formula developed by German psychologist Hermann Ebbinghaus, who pioneered the experimental study of memory.
A Learning Secret: Don't Take Notes with a Laptop “More is better.” From the number of gigs in a cellular data plan to the horsepower in a pickup truck, this mantra is ubiquitous in American culture. When it comes to college students, the belief that more is better may underlie their widely-held view that laptops in the classroom enhance their academic performance.

There’s no emotion we ought to think harder about than anger There’s no emotion we ought to think harder and more clearly about than anger. Anger greets most of us every day – in our personal relationships, in the workplace, on the highway, on airline trips – and, often, in our political lives as well.

Note Taking Skills for 21st Century Students Note taking skills aren’t just automatic. We tell students “take notes” but they have no idea what that means. What makes “good notes.” What do they write down? How should notes look?
