10 Habits Of Effective Teachers.

Deborah Welsh's insight:

Love the last one. It's almost the opposite of what teacher training advocates - you are allowed to be an independent thinker AND change your mind. You can't ask people to think critically and then complain when they exercise that skill.

Are the particular words we use to talk to our kids so important? And how do we convey positive feelings without negative consequences?
