6 Ways to Use the Slight Edge in Your Classroom | Edudemic

6 Ways to Use the Slight Edge in Your Classroom | Edudemic | Technology in Today's Classroom | Scoop.it
“ Will Smith once told a story from his childhood in which his father broke down the brick wall at his business and told him and his brother to rebuild it. It took them a year, but they finished the job and learned a powerful lesson contained within a memorable metaphor. He explains, “You don’t set out to build a wall. You don’t say ‘I’m going to build the biggest, baddest, greatest wall that’s ever been built.’ You don’t start there. You say, ‘I’m going to lay this brick as perfect as a brick can be laid. You do that every single day and soon you have a wall.” This story from Will Smith captures the very essence of the Slight Edge philosophy that we will discuss in this article. Applying this idea within the classroom will help students develop a strong long term sense of accomplishment that is necessary to achieve their goals.”
