One of the hardest things to teach middle school students is the power of their own autonomy. They aren’t comfortable with failure and don’t realize the power of learning from failure and figuring things out on your own. I believe that the blended learning experiences my students will have will give them the opportunity to try, fail, and then learn how to learn from mistakes and persevere until they reach mastery.
