Problem Solving Includes Allowing for Failure

Real teaching provides students opportunities to problem solve. This instructional practice includes allowing students to fail and try again. So often we fail to provide those key opportunities to students. When educators end the process at failure, we omit the significant "retry" step. Where would the world be if famous thinkers such as Einstein were not allowed a "do over"?
