Better Than Carrots or Sticks is a book to have on your shelves because longtime educators and best-selling authors Dominique Smith, Douglas Fisher, and Nancy Frey provide a practical blueprint for creating a cooperative and respectful classroom climate in which students and teachers work through behavioral issues together.
Khan Academy and PERTS, Stanford University’s applied research center on academic mindsets, created this lesson so that students realize potential for self-guidance and that intelligence can develop further.
The authors of Marshmallow Test wanted to know whether the kids who couldn’t wait to get the treat, the “low delayers,” would show an underlying inability to exert self-control in adulthood, or whether their self-discipline failed only in certain, emotionally charged cases.
The video recreates the previously performed Stanford experiment about delayed rewards as young children will be given an extra marshmallow if they wait for the adult to come back and resist the temptation of eating the previously given one. The Marshmallow Test: Mastering Self-Control is the very useful book for educators and all who want to get motivated outside of instant gratification.
