How to Trust Your Students - Edutopia

How to Trust Your Students - Edutopia | 21st century education | Scoop.it

"Education is catastrophically deficient in trust. Pro-accountability education reformers presume that, absent carrots and sticks, classrooms would be overrun with lazy and incapable teachers. Traditional instructors presume that, absent carrots and sticks, classrooms would be overrun with lazy and incapable students. Both viewpoints emerge from a noble desire to make classrooms high-performance spaces, but in actuality they suppress excellence. "


Via John Evans
Pippa Davies @PippaDavies 's insight:

Trust tells your students you believe in them even when they mess up!  Forgiveness is all part of being a good teacher!
