Failure is Inherent in learning: GROWTH MINDSET is a must in school!

“Learning is enhanced when learners are encouraged to take risks, understanding that mistakes are inherent in the learning process.”RSU18 Guiding Principles

Failure and Success

Kevin Washburn wrote a blog post that I read in the fall and recently reviewed.  This post struck me as exactly what we are talking about when we talk about why we must customize learning for our students.  If we want young people to really learn what it takes to face a struggle, overcome and achieve, we must instill in them the desire to take risks and to fail. Take a moment to read his piece and reflect on what it means for education, how it relates to our vision for school, and how it might have changed your own experience.
