Only 5 more shopping days to Christmas and 11 until the clock strikes 2014!
I'd love to hear what your favorite books, reports, articles, videos, training manuals, movies and what have you were for 2013. After all, every other pundit and outlet is offering their top-10 list on every consumable item. Why not WriterCoach Connection on education and writing? It really matters :)
To get the ball rolling, I’d like to point to a surprisingly in-depth and local article that appeared in last week’s edition of East Bay Express:
Life, Death, and PTSD in Oakland
How violence and poverty are traumatizing the city's youth.
by Rebecca Ruiz
The feature describes how violence and poverty continue to traumatize Oakland's youth. While there is a lot of back and forth on the proper definition of PTSD, I think this article might help coaches understand the incredible difficulties some of our students face. OUSD’s response to the crisis starts on page 3. Check it out, then tell us what you think. Then tell us...
What’s on your list?
