I felt that chapter three had many valuable points. For example, I agree with the idea of decision paralysis. When given too many options, people will shut down and not make a decision. Also, I agree with the point made about being crystal clear (clarity dissolves resistance). People need a clear picture to move forward. I found that this applies to education because specific directions help lead students through tasks. My only struggle seems to be that what is specific for one student is too much for another, so how do we meet all needs? With that said, I know the answer to that question will be for teachers to differentiate.
The hardest part for me to grasp in this chapter was the fact that it stated that we don’t need to get to the root of the problem. The example given was related to child abuse. I believe change can occur without getting to the root of the problem, but I do wonder about the long term effects of the change because I feel that the root of the problem needs to be addressed.
