304: Why Students Don’t Ask for Help and What to Do About it

17 Feb

There are two huge reasons why students don’t ask for help, but this can change with a little prodding.

Gretchen breaks down how to help students get over their discomfort with looking “stupid” and asking the right questions to get the help they need.

Specifically, she discusses:

  • the two main reasons students don’t ask for help
  • how knowing the Study Cycle can help students understand what kind of questions to ask when they need help
  • how parents and teachers can support students with building their “ask-for-help” competencies
