Saturday’s Book: The Tipping Point by Gladwell

The book’s full name is:

The Tipping Point: How little things can make a big difference

It’s a very interesting book.

Not surprisingly the part that I was most interested in was the part about the TV programs Sesame Street and Blues Clues (was not familiar with the latter). What research went into discovering what was effective and was not! Every little detail was considered!

What I’d really like to read is someone’s take on how to use these principles in the classrooms. How to make  messages  such as to say you actually studied before an exam (and to do so!)  cool, how to make things we’re trying to get the students to remember “stick”.

  1. I also enjoyed the book but read it ages ago. Would be interesting to go back and look at it in regards to classroom teaching. Just finished off the BESIG conference here and need to finish my next blog post but if I come up with any ideas, will let you know.

    1. Marjorie, I heard the conference was awesome!
      I’m sure people have written about the applications for education. I just have to find time to start looking!
