Point at the Process

 

When a student

is not doing his work

teachers, generally speaking,

say one of two things.

 

They will say to themselves,

“He’s not doing his work!”

or

“This is not working for him.”

 

The first statement

blames the student.

The second,

blames the process.

 

Certainly, at times

the student is to blame

but

often, the process

is the culprit.

 

At the very least

teachers need to make sure

they are saying both.

 

But it is my belief,

that if we point

at the process

more than the student

we would see

more progress.
