I have perfected my chocolate chip cookie recipe.

thinkbrit:

Guys, I have a problem. I bake. It’s becoming a habit.

In any case, I decided to make chocolate chip cookies again tonight to try to perfect my recipe. It is so good that I have decided it would be selfish to hoard this recipe for myself.

These cookies are soft on the inside, a little crunchy on the outside, loaded with chocolate chips, and taste brown-sugar-butter-salty. Make them. (Although this recipe is for high altitude baking - about 6,200 feet here - so be warned & adapt as necessary.)

Also, this recipe was adapted from this one.

Pretty much the exact same time we signed a deal for the HONY book, we began working on a HONY kids’ book too. Over the last couple years, it went through a few different concepts and rewrites, until we ended up with the treasure that is LITTLE HUMANS. The final product ended up being a short narrative about what it means to be a little human. On each page there is a kid portrait which illustrates each aspect of little humanity. (Several of the photos have not been posted to the blog, which required a lot of self-restraint, because I especially love the kid posts.) 
Little Humans was so fun to write, I’m really proud of it, and am really excited for everyone to see it. I must also disclose that my girlfriend brought instrumental kid-knowledge to the table, gathered from years of intensive babysitting. 
The book is for ages 2 to 7, and will be released on October 7th. You can preorder it here: http://amzn.to/1ipvbw4

The phantasmagorical and surreal animal sculptures by Canadian artist Ellen Jewett. Between dream and nightmare, some strange creations born of a symbiosis between organic and mechanical elements, a meeting between fantasy, gothic and steampunk. Some very detailed sculptures in clay on a metal frame.

7 Things To Remember About Classroom Feedback

Feedback is an inevitable part of teaching. Naturally, you’re in a position where you’re giving a whole lot of feedback, but you’re likely on the receiving end of feedback as well. We’ve all been on the receiving end of feedback in various aspects of our lives, and I’m sure we’ve all experienced some feedback that was less than desirable – for a variety of reasons. Even if the feedback itself is inherently negative, the delivery and process of the feedback doesn’t have to be.

17% of cardiac surgeons are women, 17% of tenured professors are women. It just goes on and on. And isn’t that strange that that’s also the percentage of women in crowd scenes in movies? What if we’re actually training people to see that ratio as normal so that when you’re an adult, you don’t notice?

…We just heard a fascinating and disturbing study where they looked at the ratio of men and women in groups. And they found that if there’s 17% women, the men in the group think it’s 50-50. And if there’s 33% women, the men perceive that as there being more women in the room than men.

Seriously, go listen to this.

I actually had a discussion with a male student of mine about this because he was complaining that his class had too many girls (oh, 6th grade). He didn’t get why this was a problem, even after I explained it.

He was right though. I thought he just was imagining the imbalance, but it turns out there are 20 girls and 12 boys (so 5:3?)
