Learning Zone and Performance Zone

My classes emphasize the "Learning Zone" more than the "Performance Zone," but the semester-long writing projects definitely have some performance-like aspects. That is something I can try to highlight by using this helpful infographic! See transcript below, and be sure to read this very informative article: Learning and Performance Zones in Sports by Jeremy Frith and Eduardo BriceƱo. It contains some great observations about coaching and about learning in general.
