    Big Takeaway:

    This reminds me a lot of what my co-teacher taught me last week. Never say anything a student can say. I don’t want to take away any of the thinking, the struggle, or the learning from them by over sharing.

    Question:

    How can I better equip my students to succeed with such tasks? They are so radically different than the traditional classrooms that the students have attended before that I worry it will be hard for them to adjust. I know that it will be worth it in the long term, but anything that could help the transition be less stressful for my students would be appreciated. Struggle is only productive if it doesn’t overwhelm them with frustration or anger.
