I’ve written several posts, and discussed in my books, the importance of saying “I’m sorry” to students.
I just discovered another useful related article, and thought readers might find it helpful if I brought all of those posts together.
Here are my past posts on the topic:
The latest article that prompted me to compile this list is from Heidi Grant Halvorson at the Harvard Business Review. It’s titled The Most Effective Ways to Make It Right When You Screw Up.
Why It Might Be Helpful to Apologize for Something That’s Not Your Fault is from The Harvard Business Review and shares some interesting research.
Here’s an excerpt:
The Apology Critics Who Want to Teach You How to Say You’re Sorry is from The Science of Us.
“Apologizing doesn’t always mean you are wrong and the other person is right.
It means you value your relationship more than your ego.”

And this holds true in the classroom, too. When we are sharp with a student or mistakenly accuse a student of inappropriate behavior, it’s important to model a public apology https://t.co/SXkyrR95P6
