Great Blog Post on "Normalizing Struggle"

Our own Cassie Christopher from Texas Tech University School of Law wrote a recent blog post for the Appellate Advocacy blog on helping students understand that struggle and failure is part of the learning process.  You can find her post here.

The post is a short synopsis of her forthcoming article with the same title.  Many of us know that learning is hard and students should struggle through the process.  The problem is many students don't know that they should struggle.  Not only have many of them not struggled before, law school culture perpetuates a perfectionism mindset.  I encourage everyone to read her post and pass around her article to all law faculty to help spread a message to students that struggling is ok.
