Sunday Reads (2019-12-22)

Settle in for a few long reads of interest this week.

  1. Excellent piece on how we teach writing to students. I found it thoughtful and reflective. Good for anyone who teaches writing or uses writing in their classroom – Is Writing to Text the Only “High-Quality” Curriculum?
  2. A local (Ojai) piece on the ongoing journey of fires, dams, history and floods – Matilija Hot Springs to be leveled
  3. A deep discussion on mental health and Buddhism from a master. From 1975!? – Make Your Mind an Ocean
  4. This one is definitely making the rounds and I encourage everyone to take the time a read this investigative piece from The NY Times – Twelve Million Phones, One Dataset, Zero Privacy
  5. Another great investigative piece on where fascism lives both in America and internationally – Transnational White Terror: Exposing Atomwaffen And The Iron March Networks
  6. A short piece for those teaching mindfulness – Why Mindfulness And Trauma-Informed Teaching Don’t Always Go Together
