Wish I knew…

Let’s talk about this on general terms…

So a student comes in and … they’re struggling.   There’s a lot they seem to know… strengths abound… but wham!  they keep crashing and burning…

… how much is the math model?

… how much is oh, symbol overload (e.g., students who will have no trouble w/ the math as long as … there are only four lines to look at at a time…and once line 5 is there… overwhelm…)

… how much is physical… hungry…  just plain tired?   At what point do I say “okay, you’ve done enough for the day! Go … well, have a pop tart from the collection if you’re hungry right now…

(oh, well, and also, how much is content that’s presented… inconsistently…)
