It is virtually impossible to make things relevant for, or expect personal excellence from, a student you don’t know.

Carol Ann Tomlinson


What zone am i in l.jpg
What Zone Am I In? expect personal excellence from, a student you don’t know.

  • On Target

  • I know some things…

  • I have to think…

  • I have to work…

  • I have to persist…

  • I hit some walls…

  • I’m on my toes…

  • I have to regroup…

  • I feel challenged…

  • Effort leads to success..

  • Too Easy

  • I get it right away…

  • I already know how…

  • This is a cinch…

  • I’m sure to make an A..,

  • I’m coasting…

  • I feel relaxed,,,

  • I’m bored…

  • No big effort necessary.

  • Too Hard

  • I don’t know where to start…

  • I can’t figure it out…

  • I’m spinning my wheels…

  • I’m missing key skills…

  • I feel frustrated…

  • I feel angry…

  • This makes no sense…

  • Effort doesn’t pay off…

THIS is the achievement zone.

THIS is the place to be.
