“Not Yet . . . And That’s OK demonstrates the why and how of creating resilient learners through the power of yet. The book is written practically and is a must-read for any educator who is eager to help students overcome the kinds of learning struggles that will surely bring success to their future.”
“Not Yet . . . And That’s OK is a timely book for educators as they address gaps in learning. It includes personal anecdotes that humanize the challenges teachers encounter as we seek to ensure all students are successful. Along with research-based findings, Peg Grafwallner has also incorporated practical, implementable ideas by including templates and suggestions from teachers. This book is a perfect resource for a book discussion, with thoughtful questions at the end of each chapter.”
“So many times, I leave professional development sessions understanding a need to change my teaching approach but with no concrete idea of what my solution should look like. Peg Grafwallner provides suggestions and examples I can immediately put to use as I work toward creating an environment that reintroduces the joy of learning while preserving the integrity of education. It provides the answers I’ve been looking for to move students forward in their education with an emphasis on learning rather than students just “redoing” challenging work to accumulate points or opting out of that work entirely.”
“This is an extraordinary book, research based, classroom perfected, and perfect for now. I love Peg’s not-yet approach, which de-emphasizes grading in favor of impactful feedback, intentional reflection, and much more. This approach, which she supports with useful templates and real-world success stories, will help all students reach their potential, overcoming obstacles along the way.”
