Agency: the ability to make choices and direct activity based on one's’ own
resourcefulness and enterprise
Language of Mindfulness
Language allows for possibility of interpretation
Absolute language: causes students to turn off prior knowledge
Conditional language: is not about foregoing answers; it is about foregoing early closure
to the process of finding answers
Language of Praise and Feedback
Feedback should be informative, not just “well done,” “brilliant,” “good job”
“Teacher praise discourages freedom of expression, creates dependency on the teacher
and promotes conformity by conditioning students to measure their worth by their ability
to please others.”
Praise is not Feedback
Language of Listening
“Deep listening is miraculous for both the listener and speaker.
“Seek first to understand, then to be understood.”
Threading requires us to listen for the expression of key ideas, questions or issues
