As a teacher, I often wonder what an ideal lesson should look like for students. Would it be one where students operate out of a strength area in order to experience success and build confidence? Or, should students be challenged to develop areas of weakness which can also help to build resilience?
Would an ideal lesson be one where students work together in teams developing their interpersonal skills? Or, should students be encouraged to work individually, developing their independence? Is it better for students to practice current skills, working towards mastery? Or, is it better for them to seek opportunities for new knowledge and skills, adding to their repertoire?
