Modelling How to Look Up for Visual Recall
Don’t look down!
When children are struggling, where are they looking? Just notice for a few minutes; They are probably looking down into their negative emotions or, worse, their self- talk, which is busy re-enforcing failure, with words like, “I can’t do this. It’s impossible.” When they look up, they are accessing pictures and sideways for speaking and listening. So, the message is that if the student is struggling: Don’t let them look down.
