I can't think of a better way to start the new semester than with some learning about learning. Ms. King's chemistry classes discussed a few articles & blog posts that helped students realize why she runs her class the way she does. Students made some great parallels between working out and learning, such as when you go to the gym you expect to work hard and sweat, as that's how you get stronger. Your brain is similar and the thinking Ms. King makes you do, by not telling you the answer (but helping you guide yourself to it) is the tough work you need to do if you really want to learn the material.
