The 411 on 529s (Jan 7th newsletter)

Here is the link to the January 7th newsletter. The Top 5:

  1. There are two articles about Cardinal Law in the American Catholic News section. The articles put his life and failures in the context of our new reality in the Church.
  2. In the Leadership section, the first article about “No More Zeros” is a great piece on standards-based grading.
  3. In Teaching & Learning, the first article on “10 Creative Risks” should inspire teachers to try something new now. Not next year. Now.
  4. In the Miscellaneous section, the first article on the resulting fallacy was very interesting. How many times do we judge a decision based on its results?  Sort of a “winners write the history” approach.  Perhaps that’s not the right approach.
  5. I can’t shake the article entitled “Want to Be Happy? Think Like an Old Person.”  It’s really stunning how these people find happiness even as their physical abilities diminish.
