  55. 55. Learning Enhanced with “Error Inclusion” Directions Unlike other curriculum, I find value in errors. Without putting errors in the directions, students never learn how to problem solve for the solutions. That is why common errors are left in place, tested and then explained how to fix. Next time the students encounters a similar error, they will have tools to fix the problem and not rely on you to help.
