Every learning challenge is an empowering opportunity to grow. In Not yet … and that’s OK: How productive struggle fosters student learning, author Peg Graffwallner turns the idea of failure on its head by offering teachers practical strategies and tools that encourage students to engage in a not-yet approach to learning. By learning to expect and overcome personal barriers to growth in the classroom, students in years 3–12 come to celebrate the academic experience and all it has to offer as they develop into capable and autonomous learners and risk-takers.
