Teaching Tip #176

Teacherscribe’s Teaching Tip #176

I came across this interesting read on Twitter last week: 8 Pathways to Every Student’s Success.

4.  Self-Awareness

As an English teacher, this one is in my wheelhouse.  Sometimes I wonder if this isn’t all I do!  Write an essay about your biggest failure and how you recovered.  Write an essay about a rite of passage and how it impacted you.  Write an essay about your strongest passion and how you developed it.  Write an essay about a topic you feel strongly about and support it with evidence.  

Then we read The Dip, The Element, So Good They Can’t Ignore You, Linchpin, Talk Like TED . . . it’s all about making them more self-aware and how to play to their strengths not only now but especially years later.
