A common catch cry is that today’s children are overprotected, overpraised and overprovided for, We have all witnessed work avoidance behaviours and heard student’s wail “I don’t know what to do”. All this before they have even paused for a second to stop and think. All too often help is at hand for such students. Rather than let the students struggle or, even worse, let them fail, teachers tend to swoop in and guide, tell or take over from the students. The POWER UP posters are intended to help with this crucial issue, by providing suggestions that support stickability and endurance ... and eventually positive learning experiences for students.
