Larry your topic and lesson plan are timely for me. I am a first year teacher in an ED center, I thought I would be spending most of my time worrying about content (which is the case)but I spend almost as much time trying to figure out how to teach acceptable behaviors. I am sure that many of my students would say that self-control is a key issue for them. I will definitely think about having a lesson using the marshmallow study.
