Sometimes letting students struggle is the best strategy. Wait what? Stay with me here. You wake up in the morning and your alarm is screaming at you while the dog barks. Your kid throws up, and you realize you forgot to put the clothes from the washer into the dryer. On mornings like this you know “the struggle was real.”
But have you ever stopped to think that there was a benefit or several benefits to that struggle? As teachers, we see students struggle to grasp various concepts daily and we want to get in there and save them from frustration.
Before you swoop in to save the day, think about this: struggling can benefit your student. Wait. Hold the phone. There are benefits to struggling? The simple answer is yes! Allowing your students to struggle can help them in four incredible ways.
In this episode, I share four benefits to letting your students struggle and how you can help them reach their full potential going forward in education and life.
