You could start by changing its title to “Why Students Quit?”
As I read it I kept thinking of the students I lead mainly in their Language learning journey and started asking myself some questions.
For instance, looking at number 1 in the article I wondered: Are we ‘overworking’ our young at school? Number 4 got me asking myself: Could my students think I don’t care about them? And with 6 and 7 I thought: How are students being asked to use their creativity (thinking of it not as “artistic skills” but more as “problem-solving skills”)? Finally, after number 9 I had to ask: How are we allowing students to follow their passions in our teaching?
As we are getting to a stage of the year in which we can perhaps start thinking about 2017, these are some ideas for your consideration.
Good reading and reflecting on these ;)
