Pins Of The Week

 

I’m fairly active on Pinterest and, in fact, have curated 17,000 resources there that I haven’t shared on this blog.

I thought readers might find it useful if I began sharing a handful of my most recent “pins” each week (I’m not sure if you can see them through an RSS Reader – you might have to click through to the original post).

The Best Resources On Teens Demanding An Effective Response To Climate Change

Thousands of UK students walked out of classes today to demand action on climate change, and it was just the most recent effort by teenagers who are recognizing that many adults don’t seem to care about the world they won’t be around to see…

I thought it would be useful to collect resources on their organizing activities, and add this list to The Best Resources Sharing The History Of Teens Organizing For Justice:

Thousands of UK students strike over climate change – video is from The Guardian.

Skipping School to Save the Earth is from The NY Times.

 

Earlier this year, protest were led by students in other countries, including in The Netherlands and in Belgium:

 

 

Belgian students hit the streets as “climate strike” spreads across Europe is from Salon.

Late last year, the same thing happened in Australia:

 

 

These protests were also partially inspired by Fifteen-year-old activist Greta Thunberg:

 

Students in the U.S. are organizing, too: ‘I love calling out politicians’: meet the student suing Trump over climate change is from The Guardian.

Research Studies Of The Week

I often write about research studies from various fields and how they can be applied to the classroom. I write individual posts about ones that I think are especially significant, and will continue to do so. However, so many studies are published that it’s hard to keep up. So I’ve started writing a “round-up” of some of them each week or every other week as a regular feature.

By the way, you might also be interested in MY BEST POSTS ON NEW RESEARCH STUDIES IN 2018 – PART TWO.
