Reflection: Trust and Respect The Shoshone Tribe - Section 2: Shoshone Tribe Presentation


This point in the year, the students are very comfortable presenting in front of the class.  I no longer have any students who don't want to participate.  I feel that this comes from creating a classroom environment where the students trust and respect each other.  We talk all year about how boring it would be if we all had the same strengths and weaknesses.  We should help each other and respect each other and embrace our differences.  Mistakes are good.  They help us understand what to do differently next time and help us become successful.  There are no dumb questions.  Once the students realize you are serous about these things.  They will open up and try difficult things.  They know they are safe to make mistakes.  That is HUGE!  Most of them come into my classroom afraid to make mistakes.  When they learn that there is value in a mistake and value in persistence, think of where they are headed!  The possibilities are endless!!
