One of the often-overlooked tasks of those in the teaching profession is to assist struggling students and helping them reach their full potential.
Today’s centerpiece article on TeachHUB.com looks at some teaching strategies to we can use to both encourage student growth and help unlock struggling students’ potential. Penned by Janelle Cox, a frequent TeachHUB.com (and TeachHUB Magazine) contributing writer based in upstate New York (she’s also a longtime elementary school educator), the teaching strategies she outlines include:
- Teach Students to Learn How to Fail
- Show Students How We Learn
- And More!
Janelle sums up her article like this: “Struggling in school can be frustrating for both you as the teacher, as well as the student. As long as you encourage growth mindset, teach the student that it’s OK to fail, show them how we learn, and take the time to really get to them, then they’ll be able to eventually learn to reach their full potential.”
