About the Book

When students are afraid, they cannot learn.  In “Fearless Classrooms,” Dr. Douglas Reeves explains how teachers and school administrators can provide psychological safety for every student and staff member.  In a fearless classroom, students can make mistakes and learn from those mistakes without being afraid of embarrassment and humiliation.  Rather than toxic practices such as evaluating students based on mistakes made months in the past, fearless classrooms evaluate students based on their performance at the time the grade is awarded.  Every mistake is not a disgrace, but an opportunity to learn. “Fearless Classrooms” provides a guide for every educator and school leader to create a safe environment for  every student to learn and grow both intellectually and emotionally.
