Greetings from the Society Pages! This week we rounded up #TSPClassics about the election and voting and presented new research on the consequences of classroom mismatching for kids. We also feature a guest post that frames Qanon’s #savethechildren movement as a moral panic.
“Taken for a Moral Ride: Public Fears, Qanon, and Sexual Exploitation.” Libby Trudeau frames Qanon’s #savethechildren movement as a moral panic and considers the consequences of this kind of public attention for the anti-trafficking movement.
“Mismatching is Misguided for Many Middle Schoolers” by Erika Sanborne. We feature new research that considers the predicators and consequences of overmatching or undermatching classroom difficulty for middle school students.
