When teachers see the 2 words, results-oriented, generally, they have a few questions, especially teachers who taught during the era of high stakes testing. Teachers often wonder what or how a results-oriented classroom can lead to a culture of success.
In a strength-based classroom, results-oriented does not mean that we, as teachers, are going to focus on a student’s test results, homework results, or assignment results; but, instead, it’s a focus on all students understanding that short and long term academic, social, physical and emotional goals lead to wonderful results, and with hard work, perseverance and focus, the results lead to greater and more profound possibilities.
In a strength-based, results-oriented classroom, students know that their work counts. They know that the teacher’s lecture matters. They know that the homework is meaningful. They know that the assignments have depth. They know that the tests translate into deeper learning.
