How to address students who struggle independently


Pairing students who struggle with other students who are a little further along in an assignment will asssit the student in getting the required skills and information necessary to work. Sometimes, pairings can help both students come along through an activity, while also increasing the understanding of both students. Building their confidence through class discussions and complimenting their work will also encourage struggling students to persevere through activities and they will eventually work individually.


Its nice to see this, I think this is one of the reasons that pair programming is featured so heavily in the CSD curriculum.
