Fall Down 7 Times, Get Up 8

As teachers and parents, our job is to teach students to tackle challenges rather than avoid them.


Award­-winning teacher and best­selling author Debbie Silver addresses the relationship between student motivation and risking failure, calling failure a temporary “glitch” that provides valuable learning opportunities. She explains motivational theory, provides down­-to-­earth—often humorous—real life examples, and outlines concrete, applicable guidelines for helping students overcome setbacks and failure to foster lifelong success.


Key topics include:

-        How to help students become autonomous, enthusiastic, lifelong learners

-        Why failure is not only an option, but a very concrete way of gaining ground

-        The difference between a “pep talk” and specific, relevant feedback that enhances self-­efficacy

-        This reader­ friendly guide’s examples of dialogue and vignettes demonstrate what to say when giving feedback to students. Also included is a discussion guide for teacher leaders.

-        Teachers, parents, and other student advocates will find helpful strategies for helping students learn to solve problems, take risks, and pursue success with confidence.
