Overcoming the Fear of Being Wrong: 20 Ways To Help Your Students

Overcoming the Fear of Being Wrong: 20 Ways To Help Your Students | networking people and companies | Scoop.it

Too often we may hear the words "I don't know" because the student may feel embarrassed if the give an incorrect answer. This post discusses this topic in some detail before it provides 20 suggestions on ways to work with students to help them overcome the fear of being wrong. Five of the suggestions are below. Additional information on each is in the post as well as fifteen additional suggestions.

We will never grow if we don't make mistakes and then learn from them. I am sure Bill Gates and James Dyson would agree. Look up any interview with them as they talk about their products.
