What do we want our students to be learning?
Dispositions (residuals of learning)
- Open minded
- Meta cognitive
- Truth seekers
- Risk takers
- Full of wonder
Do we promote a culture of work in our classes: “does this count towards my grade?”
Should we promote learning – what do our students learn about learning? If students don't see the point of learning, they should feel empowered to ask for the point of it.
Do we tell students what we want them to learn, or just the work we want them to do?
Do students have to complete the exercise of work if they have already learnt what we wanted them to learn?
