Based on her research for her book, Fall Down 7 Times, Get Up 8: Helping Students Succeed, Dr. Debbie Silver explores the phenomena of why both high flyers and struggling learners quit trying. She uses research from Bandura, Vygotsky, and Dweck to support her contention that teaching kids the value of failure is not only helpful, but necessary. Weaving scientific findings with examples and personal anecdotes, Dr. Silver offers a cogent, convincing message to educators about how to use effective feedback to improve learning.
