Have students participate in group work, especially cooperative learning, in order to develop social and affective skills.

Some people love romance, others hate it. I have also published an ebook on Amazon called Occupy the Moment, which obviously has to do with the Occupy Wall Street movement and perhaps less obviously with the idea of “being in the moment.” It only costs 99 cents, but each sale will help give me a track record to maybe someday get this published as a real, physical book, so I’d appreciate your support.
