Is it teaching or coaching?

I was reading an article today that made me think about what I see in classrooms at Condit all the time. The author of the article said ‘having someone invested in what you do is the best cure for slacking off’. Sometimes it’s about instructing your students, but so often it is about encouraging and believing in them. The quote is from a running magazine, but the sentiment rings true in our classrooms as well.
