Have you ever read the book, Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day? Have you ever had a day like Alexander where nothing seemed to go right? At the end of such a day, you probably had, or felt like having, a meltdown. You felt exhausted because your cognitive energy was depleted.
Your students have been there too.
