Don't fear feedback on failure -- teach like an athlete

09/11/2012

Early in his teaching career educator Grant Wiggins was approached by a student whom he taught and coached. The boy said, "It's not working. We don't know what we're doing. We don't know why we're doing it, and we're bored." In an ASCD video clip featured in the Inservice blog, Wiggins discusses his reaction to the student's comments and explains what grew out of this interaction. Watch the clip.
