Advice About Giving Advice [Video - 10:22] (2010)

Featuring Kate Nonesuch, Literacy Educator and Curriculum Writer

In this video, part of a series prepared by Literacy Nova Scotia, educator Kate Nonesuch offers tips for giving advice to learners.

If a learner asks for advice, an instructor may respond by telling the learner exactly what to do. But such a response deprives the learner of the opportunity to develop thinking and decision-making skills.

She encourages instructors to refrain from giving advice and instead to give the learner a chance to talk about available options in a particular situation. That way, the learner can develop both thinking skills and confidence.
