I just so wish *I* had persevered up all the way to the climax with my students more often! I would take their productive struggle to heart to often and back down and go back to just telling them what to do. I know that the few times I stuck with it, I was more satisfied by the end and so were THEY when they achieved that “aha” on their own–they also remembered it better! I see myself getting better at coaxing them through the tension this year rather than letting it get to me.
