Galileo once said, “You cannot teach a man anything, you can only help him find it within himself.” (Goodreads, 2020). I have often pondered upon how best I could use this advice. I have been an educator for 24 years and have loved every minute of it. During this time, I have seen students of all cadres come and go, but they all have one thing in common - their innate fear of written assessments. In general, students in high school tend to have a different perspective on education than their adult counterparts - they tend to procrastinate, are usually terrible at managing their time and are very creative at coming up with excuses for their poor performance on assessments, with few exceptions. On the other hand, there are always a handful of good students, who work very hard and manage to reflect their passion for learning in their articulation on assessments.
