I have also seen math as a “get it done” process. And since mathematics has always been my weakest subject, I am familiar with the frustration and “quitter” attitude that my primary students sometimes have. I know that I will have my own struggles with changing my traditional teaching habits to this approach, so applying the Heroes Journey template to my own learning as a teacher will be a helpful support. My students and I will grow together! I am beginning to teach division to my students so the modifications Jon made to the paper stacking problem will help me teach these concepts to my kids. I wonder if it would be helpful to share the Hero’s Journey graph with students?
