April 1, 2019At West Tatnuck, we as a community of learners, accept that learning something new is hard work and takes effort. We fondly refer to the process of learning new tasks as “Productive Struggle”. Teachers and students alike have come to embrace a growth mindset. Students with a growth Mindset:
- Believe they can become smarter through effort, extra time and hard work.
- Accept that making mistakes is a fundamental part of all learning.
- Build perseverance through support and encouragement.
West Tatnuck teachers will implement the Instructional Model for open-ended response type questions for all students. This includes specific grade strategies on how to read carefully, think deeply about the information, gather evidence, and how to write a clear, detailed response.
