We tend to dwell on the negative, on where we fell short. Elena Aguilar looks to neuroscience to suggest a short daily exercise to develop a positive approach to our work and our lives:
At the end of every day, identify three things that went well in your classroom. That's part one -- what went well? When did you see indicators that your students were learning? That they were happy to be in school?
And part two: For each thing that went well, what was your role in it? What action did you take that resulted in the positive outcome?
