Are you OK?

I found the above book trailer on this post today.

The video states:

“I like to try a lot of different things.  I am not great at all of them…”

Sometimes this is how life goes…especially in teaching.

When we are brave we try new things with our students.  Some things go well…and some go just OK.  We need to celebrate our OK tries and reflect upon them.  Is the idea worth trying again?  What could be changed to make it go better?

Too often I get discouraged and frustrated with my OK tries.  I see students do the same.  This video might be nice to share with these students.  It could open up a nice dialogue about learning and goal setting.
