    I liked the point about getting the students on board. Most parents do not give pushback if the students feel like they can find success. I predict my upper-level honors track students will not like the problem-based approach. They have figured out “school” and change means they need to re-learn new hoops – so to speak.

    Therefore, I think I will try to be as organized and transparent as possible to lessen student anxiety. This should help parents feel more at ease. At the high school level, many parents are trying to give their students the responsibility of school and only step in as needed. I still think some positive communication with parents about their growth is appreciated and will help build the partnership between home and school.
