As educators we want to help our students to succeed, so can we use the research that Richard has compiled to enable us to best educate and develop the next generation?
When I look at these “secrets” I immediately reflect on my teaching and the children’s learning. Does the curriculum that my students receive, both explicit, implicit and hidden, encourage these characteristics and skills? As teachers, do we personally and individually hold these “secrets” to be important? How can we ensure that our children succeed? Does the curriculum need to be changed, revolutionised, modified?
