5 common mistakes we make with students

We ask students to sit and expect them to learn? We want children to act like adults? These are just two of the five things that sometimes we educators are doing today to harm student learning. For Thought Leader Thursday on the 10-Minute Teacher Show, we’re uncovering the mistakes rampant in our education system today.

SMART Learning Suite is today’s sponsor. Register for my free Differentiating Instruction with Technology webinar sponsored by SMART Learning Suite next Thursday, February 9 at 4pm. That’s TODAY!

In today’s show, Dr. Brad Johnson (@DrBradJohnson) talks about five things that harm a student’s ability to succeedDr. Brad Johnson. Brad teaches graduate-level leadership courses and other educational courses and is the author of six books.

In this episode, we cover the things we do to harm student learning. Topics include:

  • The disservice of a sedentary lifestyle
  • What happens to kids when we expect them to learn like adults
  • How “more math” for a student who struggles in math may not be the right thing (hint: they might just need more recess to learn more math)
  • The problem with student core strength and help and the impact in the classroom
  • The need to teach teamwork

I hope you enjoy this episode with Brad!
