Teaching Kids to Succeed This book addresses the relationship between student motivation and risking failure, re-contextualizing failure as a learning opportunity. Moving through motivational theory to real-life examples, this book outlines concrete guidelines for helping students overcome setbacks and failure to foster lifelong success. Key topics include: how to help students become autonomous, lifelong learners; why failure is not only an option, but a very concrete way of gaining ground; and the difference between a "pep talk" and specific, relevant feedback that enhances self-efficacy.
