(AN ADVANCED READING LESSON)
Have you ever heard of the marshmallow test? It’s a famous psychological study about the link between children’s ability to delay gratification (WAIT to receive the things they want) and their success later in life.
For decades, this was seen as the definitive study about willpower, but more recently, these findings have been challenged.
This week’s lesson is based on this article from The Smithsonian magazine: Why Delayed Gratification in the Marshmallow Test Doesn’t Equal Success
I hope you find this lesson interesting.
