The hero’s journey would definitely fit into my classroom. My biggest struggle is helping my students develop resilience and perseverance as they solve problems. While I have tried to integrate this type of task into my classroom, these lessons have been infrequent and inconsistent. In a sense, productive struggle was the side dish instead the main course of my approach to teaching and learning in my classroom. I can see that I was expecting my students to be resilient without teaching them how to do so. After this lesson, I am determined to use these tasks regularly to help them build problem-solving stamina.
