272: The Fine Line Between Coaching and Teaching: A Controversy - The College Prep Podcast

There’s a common controversy that comes up in Gretchen’s educator trainings: Should academic coaches teach students skills, or must they remain neutral parties who draw out the student’s inner wisdom?

Gretchen discusses this controversy, that comes up every new round of her course, and presents the “consent hamburger”, her solution to this controversy. She teaches the “consent hamburger” in her course for educators: The Art of Inspiring Students to Study Strategically.
