I Blew It Card
To encourage students to try something new, hand out this coupon at the beginning of a unit. Alternatively, you could give each student a certain number for the full term or year. Explain that you lean by taking risks, even if the risk was not successful.

Consider allowing students to correct misunderstandings on homework, quizzes, and exams. This is an example policy for students to become eligible to retake a test or quiz.
