Feeling Brilliant?

Here are several articles by Annie Murphy Paul posted on Mind/Shift. You can also check out her research at The Brilliant Blog http://anniemurphypaul.com/blog/.

Why Teaching Helps Students Learn More Deeply


  Student teachers score higher on tests than pupils who are learning only for their own sake.

The Case for Preserving the Pleasure of Deep Reading


Recent research has demonstrated that deep reading—slow, immersive, rich in sensory detail and emotional and moral complexity—is a distinctive experience, different in kind from the mere decoding of words.


How Does Multitasking Change the Way Kids Learn?


Listening to a lecture while texting, or doing homework and being on Facebook—each of these tasks is very demanding, and each of them uses the same area of the brain, the prefrontal cortex. 

How to Stimulate Curiosity


Curiosity is the engine of intellectual achievement—it’s what drives us to keep learning, keep trying, keep pushing forward. 




Annie Murphy Paul is a book author, magazine journalist, consultant and speaker who helps people understand how we learn and how we can do it better. Her latest book, How to Be Brilliant, is forthcoming from Crown.
