Guy Claxton’s Magnificent Eight

This article talks about Guy Claxton (author of “What’s the Point of School”) and his top eight learner dispositions that encourage positive learning behaviours. He also notes that teachers need to create good relationships between themselves and the students. I agree whole-heartedly with this, as in my experience, if a students doesn’t respect and/or like you, they are less willing to collaborate with you in the learning environment.
