Classrooms should be inviting and safe places where students can strive to achieve worthwhile goals, even as they learn that the road to improvement is not always paved. This deceptively simple guiding principle is what Ron Nash has spent four decades in education pursuing and refining. In Praise of Foibles: The Impact of Mistakes, Failure, and Fear on Continuous Improvement in Schools is the guide every teacher who has ever wanted to take a chance on improvement needs to read.
Learn the research-based techniques and best practices that enable you to:
- Establish an environment of safety instead of fear
- Encourage risk-taking and resilience
- Set high expectations and achieve high engagement
- Let go of control and watch your students flourish
Author Ron Nash returns with his inimitable writing style and disarming honesty to show how every teacher can transform their classroom into what students need to be successful in the 21st century.
