  9. 9. Think WinWin Working Interactively Winning Independently “many poor learners can be turned around if we just acknowledge differences amongst them and re-educate ourselves on how to help them succeed.” If we know this, why don’t all of our students succeed? Why don’t we change our instructional practice?
