    John SanGiovanni gave us a lot to think about in terms of productive struggle at the conference earlier this month. Personally, I've been thinking a lot about ways we can help teachers develop the community that allows for productive struggle.

    What are some ways you've been able to integrate his ideas into your work or your plans?

    Thanks for the reminder - I've got to get back to this, currently making an appointment with myself in my calendar to go back and think deeply about this.

    I've been working with teachers to help make them more comfortable with the idea of allowing students to struggle.  I feel like virtual and now hybrid instruction has caused many teachers to take a few steps backward in this area.

    Kim, I agree with you. I have ordered several copies of Productive Struggle and I have started to send out feelers to see whom might be interested in doing a deep dive. So much of the book ties in to NCTM's 8 practices and visible learning.
