What if we thought about our mindsets as if-then-else statements? What is we were to open up our thinking about education to allow for multiple paths? What is there could be an “else” model in the way we approach each student?
I think by evolving our mindset this way, we open ourselves to deeper relationships with students and personalization. We break our children out of the box on “one way.” What an amazing thing if we allowed our children to take the “else” path in their learning!
This takes much greater effort. It takes time. It takes trial and error. And each of our children are absolutely worth it.
How are you allowing your students to take the fork in the road that works for them?
