If students are allowed to reasonably struggle with a math task, I want to know more about a teacher prescription of actionable steps to:

- avoid a meltdown level of frustration
Robert Kaplinksy recently gave a wonderful Ignite Talk on Productive Struggle. Communication was a big part Robert's message. I want to think more (in part 2) about communication as one of the actionable steps in that prescription.
Part 2 is here.
