A student is having a hard time completing a project because they do not know how to start or what steps to take. How can you help them?
You can help this student to create a step-by-step plan for completing the project. Once the student understands what the project requires, start from the end and work backwards. If the project is due on Friday, August 30, the student should aim to have a final draft completed by Wednesday, August 28. To do this, they must have a rough draft completed by Thursday, August 22. Help the student to work backwards and plan for any necessary steps.
