Peaking your Interest…

Turns out, research says, “interest is a more powerful predictor of future choices than prior achievement or demographic variables.”  A recent blog post from Annie Murphy Paul from the KQED MIndshift blog explores the importance of cultivating interest and the implications for parenting and education.  It is a very interesting read and connects nicely to the importance of Essentials Questions in the role of learning and presents ideas about how to activate student interest to improve learning.

Enjoy and have a nice weekend!
