Sharing assessment & grading strategies that help students learn
Our students are so afraid to fail. We need to teach them that failure is what happens on the path to success. Failure because you tried is necessary. The problem is failure from not trying. Don't be afraid of failure. Be afraid of not trying.
There is a book with similar stories is called You Can Be President (or Anything Else) by Bob Moore. I would recommend it to teachers who want to teach life lessons to their students.
