Essentially, the students are going to make mistakes and lots of them. They will interrupt each other, draw unsupported conclusions, say illogical things, and so on. Although every facilitator has a different comfort zone, I strongly encourage teachers to err on the side of letting the students struggle. They will create the greatest understandings and most enduring memories during the hardest endeavors. With strong cooperation, patience, and reflection, students can successfully engage in productive struggle.
