Give It a Chance

The hardest thing to get over as a teacher is watching students who appear to be bright stop working and stop trying because they have to work through something. Just because they don't get something right away is not a reason to shut down and stop trying, at least as far as I am concerned. I have seen this more and more over the past few years and I find it aggravating because trying is part of learning. If we all understood everything that we were doing right away, learning would be a pretty boring experience.
