Do Something That Works Without Working

http://nymag.com/scienceofus/article/sometimes-not-working-is-work-too.html

consider practices in education

At the end of August, educators will begin reviewing their class lists for the new school year.á They will hope their new cohortsáoffer "intrinsically motivated and super driven" students.

But, if they are so blessed, will they begin to design plans for the upcoming schooláyear to hold the students back?

Yes, you read that last line correctly. Please read the article.

If we want students who couldásustain and continually improve high levels of performance and love school as well asáavoid "illness (including mental health), injury, and eventually apathy", we need to strategically design periods of rest, recovery, and quiet.

Could the above lead to true education reform and finally witness different, more positive results?á How could the above inform teaching and learning?

Likewise, if we wantáeducators who couldásustain and continually improve high levels of performance and love school as well asáavoid "illness (including mental health), injury, and eventually apathy", we need to strategically design periods of rest, recovery, and quiet.

How could the above foster new practices in professional development? Could the above assist in the improved recruitment and retentionáof educators?
