  • Take a Risk

    Posted by Sarah Gorley on April 5, 2020 at 1:47 pm

    One of the biggest problems I face as a teacher is getting my students to take risks. My students don’t like to put anything down on paper unless it is right. If they see a problem, they automatically say “I don’t get it.” before actually reading the problem and actually trying to apply background knowledge. We’ve done a lot of work on Growth Mindset already. I just want my students to be OK with something not being right the first time or taking the risk and possibly being correct. I believe that getting something down shows growth and shows that you are trying. It is easier for me to guide students when I know where their thinking is at.

    What strategies have you used to combat this?
