  • Frustration due to lack of understanding
  • Inability to articulate the purpose or goals of the learning
  • Mistakes are seen as failures rather than learning opportunities
  • Few opportunities for a student to shine and/or contribute to the community
  • Low sense of purpose and well-being

Ways to help meet this need:

  • Setting goals and assessing progress
  • Reflecting on learning and sharing accomplishments
  • Embracing mistakes as essential to growth
