Below are excerpts from the final article in the Why Our Academic Solutions Fail series. It’s short. It showcases a new metacognitive tool. Hopefully, it’s insightful and helpful to you.
Nora was required to meet with me as a condition of her academic probation status. She’d missed several days of class and had a .8 GPA at the end of her first semester of college. Her serial absences gave her professors a seemingly clear signal that she was disinterested in college.
However, after getting a more holistic perspective, I realized that Nora’s inability to think abstractly was causing her to avoid class. Her lack of attendance had dropped her in a hole too deep to dig out of without help.
Once I provided some clarity, Nora not only improved her grades, but she also regained her passion for learning.
