Use a computer. don’t ACT like one.

I’m often telling the kids in my class to not shut down when they strike a problem. “You’re like a computer that puts up a, ‘Can you tell me what to do?’ window.”

They either walk around the room aimlessly or stand near me waiting for help (and they could figure it out themselves – as proven when I walk them through some self dialogue).

I think problem solving skills is on of the most important skills for kids to learn these days. (Is it becoming an increasing deficit?)
