students need to work hard at reasoning through problems in order to learn something new. This is different from the expectation that the teacher and student work through an example together, and then that student struggles to replicate on their own what they’ve just done with the teacher.
Is letting your students struggle a struggle?

This is the tension I am always trying to balance between! So much of the time the lessons handed to me to teach are all about slowly leading students through a process of replication. At some point the training wheels need to come off.
