I have been reading Becoming Steve Jobs this week and it got me thinking a great deal about excellence. As you may have picked up I love reading about those who excel. I really enjoyed Malcolm Gladwell’s works.

Excellence is not a gift, nor is it a talent. Learning to strive for excellence is a skill and this skill is undeniably necessary in the 21st Century classroom. Excellence requires increased student engagement and motivation.

Over the years I learned this: If students can master one thing, they have a greater likelihood of developing mastery in other areas of their lives. So, as a result, I spend a great deal of time scaffolding meta-cognition self-regulatory skills.

Reflection

6 Jun

For the vast majority of our students, it is not difficult to create the conditions for them to become the best they can be and their best to be revealed.  The challenge is often to create ways for these student strengths to be used more often within the school. For some of our students, though, life has been a series of challenges and they often hesitate to open up to let us in.  For students with years of struggle, the fact that they come to school most days can show a real strength in resiliency, determination, or courage so this can be a starting point to embracing character strengths. As an educator when I put together my I learn plan I must reflect on my learners and decide how I can best serve all of these students best.
