We often hear the words can’t, don’t, won’t from many in education. Students, Teachers, Parents, Administrators.
Don’t do that.
You can’t do that.
I won’t do that. I’m not able to.
We need to start augmenting our thinking with regard to these words.
So let’s try it.
Let’s add to the words can’t, don’t and won’t.
Two words, Why and We, as in…
Why can’t we?
Why don’t we?
Why won’t we?
Instead of focusing on what we are not able to do, focus instead on how we can do exactly what we should be doing.
