Tasting Failure: Thoughts of an At-Risk Learner.
Hill, Don
Phi Delta Kappan, v73 n4 p308-10 Dec 1991
Recounts one teacher's experience at unsuccessfully solving spatial problems in a workshop experimenting with individualistic and cooperative learning approaches to problem solving. This humbling experience reminded the author that failure is humiliating and can arise from simply not knowing how to think about a task. All humans are "at-risk" learners in some areas. (MLH)
