Why You Should Always Ask for Advice

This is a great video to share with your students.

I know many students who are afraid to ask questions in class. They stay quiet and struggle with their work, or worse yet, they don’t do the work at all.

It’s always best to build a culture of learning in the classroom that allows our students to feel comfortable not knowing something. It’s okay to ask questions, of your peers, and of your teacher.

I do my best to admit, publicly, in class when I don’t know something or when I have made a mistake. I hope this role-modelling will teach my students that it is okay not to know. It’s okay to ask for help. We all need it some time.

I just discovered this animated YouTube series and there are lots of great videos with educational material in them. Well worth checking out.
