What happens when we focus on assets rather than deficits? Listen in as Julie Wright shares strategies for “growing the good” with Michelle Morris Jones on PEBC’s Phenomenal Teaching Podcast. Identifying and leveraging student and teacher assets allows us to, “Size-up what students can do and use that to lift their learning.” This episode of the Phenomenal Teaching podcast connects to both the community and assessment strands of the PEBC Teaching Framework as well as the culture strand of the PEBC Leadership Framework.
