Ways to help students develop risk taking skills

Provide thinking/reflecting time after projects outside of student comfort zones

Find/know student "comfort zones" in learning styles/Myers Briggs etc and design activities for students that are not in their preferred style

Asking students who prefer individual learning activities to work in groups

Asking students to present information to the entire class

Create an environment where risk taking is supported, accepted and -even better-encouraged

Read/view selections on risk takers

Model risk taking lessons such as the "fishing down the hall" where a teacher takes risks with a lesson

Design learning activities where students must ask the questions (not just answer them)

Provide interest survey for students to share outside interests

Recognize students' mastery of certain topics (especially those outside the classroom)

Invite students to present to the class on topics of mastery

Provide support when students take risks

Topics for discussions and journals
