I had success using a similar approach with undergrads at UCLA in a neon
sculpture class I taught, by telling them neon glassblowing is an easy skill
to learn--when, in fact, it isn't--takes time and practice. When anyone got
stuck, I had them stop what they were doing and move onto something else---no
two students were ever alike, so all I had to do was discover each one's
strength, and keep steering them in that direction.

Worked pretty well, many did very good work, and I got decent student
evaluations for the most part!

Best wishes,
Joseph
