Description: Teaching in 2020 has been challenging to say the least, but teachers keep working to make learning happen the best ways we can. Never give up! No matter what you are faced with, you never give up. Teachers help students keep working to succeed even when they hit "glitches" in learning. Join Lucinda Register in this book study and learn how to turn failures into successes.

A fresh approach to getting kids to work smarter and better, not just harder

Award-winning teacher and best-selling author Debbie Silver addresses the relationship between student motivation and risking failure, calling failure a temporary "glitch" that provides valuable learning opportunities. She explains motivational theory, provides down-to-earth―often humorous―real life examples, and outlines concrete, applicable guidelines for helping students overcome setbacks and failure to foster lifelong success. Key topics include:

  • How to help students become autonomous, enthusiastic, lifelong learners
  • Why failure is not only an option, but a very concrete way of gaining ground
  • The difference between a "pep talk" and specific, relevant feedback that enhances self-efficacy
 Participants must purchase or borrow the book.

Each week, participants will read two to three chapters, answer one discussion question and respond to another participant's reply. Discussion questions will be posted each Monday morning using Google Classroom. Participants will respond to one question by Thursday night and reply to someone else by Friday night.

  • February 8-12 Chapters 3-5
  • February 15-19 Chapters 6-8
