Problem Solving

We have been developing our problem solving skills by:

  • learning the difference between “big” and “small” problems
  • learning  that students are “smart enough and strong enough” to solve most small problems.
  • learning that students need to “get the help of an adult they trust” when trying to solve big problems.
  • learning choices students can make in order to solve small problems.
