Simple Ways to Cultivate Happiness in Schools | Edutopia.

I love using principalaim to highlight an educational perspective that I share or that I am wrestling with. Today’s “Read This Now!” features an interesting blog posting from Elena Aguilar. As many of you know, I feel very strongly that a balanced approach to learning is the best guarantee of academic success for children. I truly believe that happy children are more productive than children who are worried, angry, or frustrated; therefore, creating a happy learning environment is one of the first priorities accomplishing this goal. I hope you enjoy Elena’s suggestions for cultivating happiness in schools. tlb
