58: Teach Don’t Test!

Episode 58 Teach Don't Test

How would you feel if you were being tested everyday?

You would feel so much pressure! That is how our students would feel if we were always testing them especially because they are testing so often in the classroom. 

In this episode, I am talking all about why we should not always be testing our students and why we should be teaching them instead.

This is a shorter episode, but I really think it’s an important one because this concept will really benefit you and your students.



In This Episode, You’ll Discover:

  • Why it's important to work through a problem with your students to help them get it right
  • The benefit of an easy teaching moment
  • How to model your own thinking to show students how to generate answers
  • Advice on how and when to take data

I love sharing practical and relevant therapy ideas with you and inspiring you. I hope this episode encouraged you to keep your room warm and inviting for your students.
