Our CEO, was reading was reading an article about Esther Wojcicki, a veteran educator and the bestselling author of "How to Raise Successful People" when she saw this quote:

     "Mastery means doing something as many times as it takes to get it right. Being a writing teacher taught me this. In the 80s and 90s, one of the supposed characteristics of a good teacher was that your class was so hard that many students failed.

     But the kids who got a D on their first paper found it impossible to recover and lost the motivation to improve, since they were starting out so far behind.

     So I gave them the opportunity to revise their work as many times as they wanted. Their grade was based on the final product. And when it came time for testing, my students performed in the 90th percentile of state exams.

     It was the learning and the hard work that I wanted to reward, not getting it right the first time."  --Anne Wojcicki

Did you know... ? With TeacherMade, you can apply Ms.Wojcicki's advice by allowing your students to check their answers an unlimited number of times!! Hopefully, you'll get the same positive results with your students!
