ABSTRACT
The article discusses the value of the win-win mentality, a concept used in the business field, in an educational setting. The author suggests that the win-win strategy fosters a positive school environment and promotes the idea that all students should be valued, included, and respected in the classroom. She addresses several roadblocks to win-win thinking, including educators who prefer an authoritarian approach to classroom management, the prevalence of the zero-sum paradigm in education, and the negative reactions of teachers to failure. Several ways teachers can adopt the win-win mentality in their classrooms are presented, including giving students options, focusing on positive language when enforcing rules, and communicating clearly with students.
