In most schools, the majority of learning is done in classes or groups. But students must also learn how to learn independently. Often times, students are not naturally inclined to learn or work this way. However, independent learning skills are not only necessary for their future, but there are times when independent work is necessary in the classroom. Learn how to help your students become more independent to work on their own. Teaching students to work independently, not only sets them up for success in the future, but also gives you, the teacher, more time for small group instruction and intervention. Learn strategies and techniques to help students work through challenging tasks without constantly begging for assistance while fostering critical thinking and deeper learning.

Good tip about good healthy competition and using comparable incentives. Building stamina can be challenging but implementing one step at a time is a good reminder. "Progress over Perfection"
