“Freedom to Fail” – June 30th

Pre-order my first book for June 30th release, “Freedom to Fail: How do I foster risk-taking and innovation in my classroom?”, published by ASCD Arias. I explain the many benefits of intentionally designing opportunities for students to “fail forward” in the classroom, providing strategies for ensuring that students experience small, constructive failures as a means to greater achievement, and offers practical suggestions for ensuring that constructive failure doesn’t detrimentally affect students’ summative assessments.
