The “Just Right Challenge” Teaching in the Neurodiverse and Neurotypical Classroom.

17 Jan

When I consult to schools I like to give the teachers as much time as possible to ask me questions, in a free-form setting. This video is part of a question and answer session at a great DIR school where I consult. A teacher wanted to know when she was pushing too much, as she was also afraid of pushing too little, and knew this would slow her students’ learning. It is very difficult to know when you are challenging a student enough, or too much. I  answered her question on this difficult topic, and explained why the book, “Where the Wild Things Are” is a perfect metaphor for the experience of teaching and parenting.
