So in my usual calm manor I write my feedback question on the board, and the kids all rip a scrawny piece of paper out of their books and write down their grade and their sentence! I begin collating away and realise that my usual trend is not there! The kids have given me a much larger C rating and they are blaming!
What is my next step? Well tomorrow I walk into that class and we work through the blame and we ask why not A's?
Every student has the same opportunity in my room, some need to work a little more, some may need more of my guidance, some may need to spend time with me after school to learn it, some may need to access Khan Academy videos more regularly but you all have these opportunities! Spend the lesson solving there reasons for why they can't in order to create a classroom full of " I can."
THAT IS MY JOB!
