“Educating students to have high,
challenging, appropriate expectations is
among the most powerful influence in
enhancing student achievement.”
John Hattie (2012)
My Issue
• Students didn’t always push themselves, despite me
presenting them with wonderous extension tasks
• Obviously can be a multidimensional problem
• I limited my concern mostly to the lack of a culture
of students challenging themselves
A solution?
• Rebranding to Challenge
• Setting Challenge tasks for every activity
For every activity!?
For every activity!?
