In Chapter Three Hjalmarson points to assumptions we make about students and the role their parents play in the educational enterprise. What are some of these assumptions? What assumptions do you have about students in a school you work at or a K-12 school you have attended? Indicate how some of these assumptions that educators make can unwittingly become self-fulfilling prophecies.
Guided Response: Assumptions are powerful. Think about all the assumptions you make each day about school and the learning process, then focus on the assumptions you make about students and their parents. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts.
