What is this strategy about?
Create an environment where your pupils feel safe making and discussing mistakes, so you can spend less time hunting for errors and more time fixing them.
What is culture of error?
A culture of error is an environment where a teacher normalises error and expects students to make mistakes so that they can discuss it and learn from it.
Why is making mistakes a good thing?
Making mistakes is an opportunity for growth. Encourage students to learn from their mistakes to become better problem solvers and critical thinkers so that they do not run the risk of repeating the same mistakes again.
