Today’s Passage:
“
Learning from his mistake
Herman talked to his friend, Mia, and she told him that he shouldn’t get upset
about his bad grade since mistakes are learning opportunities and just a part
of the learning process! She suggested that instead of getting discouraged or
giving up, he should
reflect on his mistakes, see why he made those mistakes,
and then think of ways that he could avoid making the same mistakes again.
It’s a feedback opportunity!
Mia encouraged h
erman to go to tutoring and ask for help figuring out a
different learning stra
tegy.
When Herman showed up to tutoring, his teacher gave him a few pointers on
different learning strategies that might improve his understanding of concepts
he was learning in history. Instead of memorizing facts and events, the
teacher suggested
he
spen
d a little bit more time thinking about a
nd
answering the question why. h
is teacher encouraged Herman to retake the test
and try again after giving this new learning strategy a try.

Why would we want to
