Spring 2014 Catalyst The Magazine of the UC Davis School of Education
This issue of the UC Davis School of Education’s biannual
Catalyst magazine highlights research including a
look at the connection between video gaming and health, and the
need for formative assessment in mathematics instruction. We also
cover several events that bring children’s literature, common
core instruction, and Shakespeare to the forefront for educators
and others in our region.
The cover story is about the student poets from across our region
who participate in our Sacramento Area Youth Speaks (SAYS)
program. You will find articles about many of our staff and
faculty who have been recognized for excellence by their peers
and a piece on our annual Honoring Educators Awards event at
which we recognize exceptional alumni, faculty, students, and
the magazine here.
