Reality Check: Helping to Manage Student Expectations

Reality Check: Helping to Manage Student Expectations | Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Most students begin college, the academic year, and new courses motivated and optimistic. Many first-year students expect to do well because they were successful in high school. Some are right, but others will only find similar success if they work much harder than they did in high school. Yet most start out expending the same level of effort. They will talk with their classmates and convince each other that an exam covering three chapters can’t be that hard, so they put off studying and then “look over” the chapters the night before— happily dealing with any and all interruptions and distractions.

Over-functioning is simply the predisposition to do too much for our children, …

Motivating Students: Should Effort Count?

Motivating Students: Should Effort Count? | Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
I’ve always said no, effort shouldn’t count. When students pleaded, “but I worked so hard,” or “I studied so long,” I would respond with the clichéd quip about people with brain tumors not wanting surgeons who try hard.

They will learn the material, and their grades will reflect that learning.
