Check out the following article entitled, Social Animal: How the new sciences of human nature can help make sense of a life from the The New Yorker. In this insightful tale, David Brooks demonstrates how the science of psychology permeates our daily lives. A wonderful and interesting read!

I'm putting together a list of the top 100 high school teacher blogs and I was wondering if I could interview you via e-mail to include more information in my article. Please e-mail me at alexisbrett@gmail.com and include the title of your blog in the e-mail, thanks!
