Schools: Solution-focused working practices with your student
In the classroom, the approach is used for setting a goal together with the student to achieve a sufficient skill level. When the student is involved in setting their own goals, they also commit to achieving them better. The main point is that the teacher/coach/adult does not define the skill level alone, but the student is always involved in defining it according to their own resources.
The student's abilities, skills and other resources must be proportionate to the objective, which must be concrete, achievable and well-defined:
What do you want to achieve?
→ Instead of what you want to get rid of
Which direction do you want to go in?
→ Instead of what you want to move away from
What do you want to begin?
→ Instead of what you want to end
What replaces the problem?
→ Realistic goals
In the approach it is important to pay attention to the standards the student is already exceeding in and highlight them. This is how positive emotional experiences are made, leading to motivation towards achieving the next skill level.
