Transformative Teaching and Learning Community
NOT YET...NOW WHAT? by Cheryl Plummer
Above the wall of windows in my classroom is the phrase that has had the greatest impact on my teaching, on my classroom climate, and on my students’ learning thus far. It is a simple phrase, derived from the Mindset work of Carol Dweck, and it says, simply: “We believe in the power of YET…” This seemingly simple phrase has touched every aspect of my First Grade classroom and, although I originally posted the phrase as a reminder to myself, the way my students have connected with it, on multiple levels, is nothing short of amazing.
