I will, most assuredly, be rereading this piece.

The position of teaching from a deep belief can make for awkward situations, especially if you don’t realize that everyone doesn’t share that belief. But from the viewpoint of the student, it makes for a more enthusiastic teacher. As long as everyone keeps an open mind and understands each other’s position, I think it works out well.


P.S. How did you get this post to show up before your Nov. 10th post? I almost missed it. D.

I’m not sure, Dave. I rarely proofread my posts adequately, and thus sometimes return a couple of days later to reread them afresh. If I make changes, that’ll change the pecking order.

The last time I was teaching at the Academy, one of my course directors gave us a copy of an article called something like “In Praise of Passionate Teaching.” It said with great eloquence what you just said so concisely: love what you do, but don’t presume to have The Answers. Passion, ultimately, is what triggers our memories. As such, it is crucial to effective teaching.

Sez me.

Oh…I just found this, written by a junior in high school (in Texas, no less). Just awesome:
