Studying the Ways Students Get Help with Classwork
Sparks, Sarah D.
American Educator, v38 n4 p28-29 Win 2014-2015
One of the first lessons students are taught in school is "If you need help, raise your hand" but as students learn in an increasing variety of settings--in and out of classrooms, in person and online--educators and researchers are starting to take another look at how students learn to ask for help. This brief article uses findings from recent studies to frame a discussion on student help-seeking behaviors and highlights the fact the differences in help-seeking can exacerbate achievement gaps between students.
