•Whenever possible teach through project based learning it is automatic differentiation and kids love it.
•Homework, and much classwork should not be graded (at least not heavily), Its practice for heavens's sake.
•School is not "real life" - kids should be allowed to make mistakes gracefully - otherwise they learn to hate school and eventually "real life".
