Students That Fail

“I am a loser.”
“Study is not for me.”
“My brain doesn’t work well.”
“School makes me feel icky.”

With statements like these
many students
convince themselves
of their deficiencies.

Why aren’t we teaching
basic study skills
and how to approach
subjects with a sense of curiosity
and thrill?

Should teachers
simply present factoids
to digest?

Or should we examine
attitudes and behaviors
to see how each learner
can do to their best?
