RE: Too Much

After viewing the video I also wondered if the student would have gotten the answers correct without so much teacher aid. I feel as though the question "how much help is really necessary" is a question teachers should ask themselves often. It is easy to see a student struggling and feel as though you should correct them quickly. I once heard that students learn through struggle. The area between the ability they currently possess and the challenge you have presented is the area they can grow. However, I also would like to know when excessive help is no longer beneficial. It's a great question, and I hope someone else kind of has an answer!

        I understand that it is important to keep motivation and moral up in these students but do they end up just memorizing the activity that they complete multiple times with prompts or are they actually ... more
