Hi All!


Here’s your weekly dose of FIVER FRIDAY, a list of what I've found useful or informational this week concerning education.


Documentary I'm watching--

Becoming Warren Buffett. If you subscribe to HBO, I highly recommend this candid portrait of Buffett. My wife and I watched it last night, and there are times we were brought to the verge of tears. Not only does the documentary present the topic of money wisely, it provides a life-affirming perspective regarding how one should live and do work that matters. 


NEW post I'm writing for Corwin--

How to Develop an Assessment Mindset. I've had a lot of fun writing for Corwin Connect recently. You can find the other two posts here and here


YouTube video I'm watching--

I know there are a lot of people who don't like puns, but those people are wrong. Puns are amazing. Long ago I declared my indePUNdance from worrying about people not liking my puns.

Do you like puns? Do you need something to help you overcome other people's PUNishing remarks when you make a pun? Then watch this video. I know my opinionated take makes me sound like a overbearing PUNdit, but I think you'll enjoy the prePUNderance of puns in the video. (Warning: There is PUNfanity--one bad word--in the video.)


What I'm reading about Bill Belichick--

I finished reading The Education of a Coach this week, which I highly recommend. I made a note in Evernote of my favorite excerpts, which you can access here. I also like this recent post on The Ringer entitled The Belichick Way. There's so much that teachers and administrators can learn from great athletic coaches like Belichick.


Quote I'm pondering--

"‪The more voluntary suffering you build into your life, the less involuntary suffering will affect your life."--Tim Ferriss
