Know Thyself

How often do we evaluate students and never share the results with them?

"Kids need to know themselves, and they need to know what to work on to help themselves."

from A Mind at a Time, Dr. Mel Levine.

Read the All Kinds of Minds June newsletter on Demystification. Have conversations with students about their learning differences and their strengths.

Good information! Thanks for sharing.
I see this as a major issue for many of our kids - they don't get the feedback of what they need to improve and they have metacognitive issues that prevent them from identifying strategies that lead to success.
And, they do not have a clear understanding of their learning style differences.
Mel Levine's work highlights demystification so thanks for pointing us toward that resource!
