Giving is Caring

Always remember:

The value of time, the success of perseverance, the worth of character, the power of kindness, the influence of example, and the obligation of duty.

Teaching Children

Teaching children implies recognizing the physical, emotional and cognitive needs of the students. This is why it is OK to recognize that from time to time they feel their brains are tired and need a change of activity "to give their brains a rest" but also they should be contented since it also means they have worked hard.

Watch the following video and try to answer some of these questions to fully appreciate the teaching/learning situation.

  • What is the effect of praising effort rather than ability?

  • How do you talk about effort in your classroom?

  • What do you see as the long term benefits of using this strategy?
