Do you know of anything I can read about how it works when it is a good thing?
I feel like what @realsocialskills was originally talking about is different than what the commenters are talking about. There are methods of instruction that treat “mistakes” as opportunities to learn (for instance the idea that “I didn’t fail, I just learned another method that doesn’t work”). This is the idea that there’s no such thing as wrong, and that you have to try a bunch of things to figure out what works in order to learn.
That’s different than completely ignoring “mistakes” until your pupil does something the way you want.
into-the-weeds knows what they are are talking about in these matters. I haven’t read the article they linked yet so I don’t know what I think about it, but their perspective is important to consider.
