How we Teach Introductory Computer Science is Wrong

Makes sense to me.
I've seen beginning programmers give up and even cry when they aren't given enough guidance or assistance LOL!
That's when Educational Psychologists began to question the idea that we should best teach problem-solving by having students solve problems.
This was most blatant in my college Physics courses where the instructor just stood there stopping his foot just waiting on students when he didn't provide enough guidance.
