“ASSET’s sessions helped me to see how students feel when being introduced to new content or ways of thinking, as it was challenging for me. Moving forward, I plan to encourage and allow my students to experience failure and struggle, and allocate more time for them to investigate and wonder.” – Grant Participant, Galeton Area School District
