Small teaching decisions matter in profound ways

Another pearl of wisdom from Anderman, Sinatra and Gray:

“small decisions made [by teachers] on a daily basis can be related in profound ways to student outcomes in science.” (p.100)

About backyardbooks

This blog is a kind of electronic storage locker for ideas and quotes that inform my research... literary research into fiction for young adults (with a special focus on New Zealand fiction). Kiwis are producing amazing literature for younger readers, but it isn't getting the academic appreciation it deserves. I hope readers of this blog can make use of the material I gather and share by way of promoting our fiction. Cheers!
