With the implementation of Common Core Standards, it is now even more important to help students become independent thinkers and learners. Need a way for students to participate more in their learning and reflect on their progress? Increase student independence and help students persevere when "the road gets rough" with this Road to Success visual tool created by Lisa Geary of LiveSpeakLove. This tool will also help students to advocate for themselves during instruction or independent work in a positive way. You can also use this tool to provide teacher feedback with a simple gesture without interrupting the flow of your teaching (pointing to yellow on the stoplight to indicate, "I know it's hard, but keep trying." ) Simple visual tools like this one become very powerful in the classroom!
