In order to create a safe classroom environment where all students are willing to take on challenges and push themselves, it is important to make the focus on learning clear, make it safe to make mistakes, and communicate a high confidence in all students’ ability to rise to the learning challenges.
Some of the consistent language used across Pumicestone State School is:
- New material is an opportunity for all of us to stretch our abilities!
- I really want you to stretch past your comfort zone of this.
- Today, I want you to challenge yourself.
- I am going to push you all because I know that you can all achieve amazing work.
