Back to Freedom to Fail: How do I foster risk-taking and innovation in my classroom? (ASCD Arias) EBOOK
It doesn't make much sense to tell students to learn from failure and then do everything we can to ensure they never experience one. That's why you need this short guide to instructional planning that ensures students experience small, constructive failures that don't detrimentally affect their summative assessments. Veteran educator Andrew K. Miller explains how to infuse your lessons with challenge and risk-taking that
- Help students to adopt a growth mindset.
- Build their resiliency and life-long learning mentality.
- Convey realistic expectations of what it takes to succeed in the world at large.
Components of a failure-friendly classroom and a raft of teaching and assessment strategies are included to help you support the freedom to fail rather than work against it.
