As educators, we understand conceptually how failure can help students learn, but do we really believe it? I think if we did, we might build for failure — in a significant way — into the scope and sequence of our curriculum. (It's true that state testing season is upon us and the word failure is hardly permissible right now but let's talk about it anyway.) What would our classrooms perhaps look like if we were to allow for more failure, even embrace it?
