Productive struggle in the classroom can increase engagement, build conceptual knowledge, and support equitable outcomes for students.  But creating opportunities for students to engage in productive struggle and then stepping back to allow it to unfold can be really challenging for us as teachers.  

Participants will follow the journey of one Spanish teacher and his instructional coach as he works through his own productive struggle in moving students towards more ownership and agency. The presenters will share reflections on mindset work and videos of productive struggle in the classroom.  Participants will also have the opportunity to reflect on what parts of their identities facilitate and hinder productive struggle.  Together, the group will collaborate on effective strategies and leave with a plan of how they will push productive struggle in their own work.  

This session is appropriate for teachers of any content area, instructional coaches, or anyone supporting teacher professional growth.
