The Power of Productive Struggle

Malika Ali, Stephanie Garcia, and Heidi Vazquez
Evidence shows that when students are able to persevere through challenging work it increases confidence, builds academic mindset, and motivates them to achieve academic success. Amidst the pandemic, school leaders have consistently reported a drop in student persistence and a rise in student frustration levels when faced with challenges. In this session, join Highlander Institute to hear how schools striving for instructional equity are overcoming these issues — by upholding high expectations for all learners, increasing student engagement, and building capacity for rigorous work.
