you're being - um - tantalising.....
Maybe rather than look at how you learnt, you could look at how you
I was a total loss at school - and if Sue is reading, I think this'll
sound familiar, because I seem to remember her saying something
I was a loss because none of my teachers could 'reach' me. Oh for a
Michelle Pfeiffer, Kevin Kline, Robin Williams......ahem. Or
extremely few, apart from maybe one or two who took the relationship
beyond Just Teach.
Anyway, I now teach teenagers basing myself on how I was NEVER
taught, but would like to have been. And it works. By gum (great
phrase) it works! It involves a LOT of dogme, because that's what
teens are about - themselves, and being listened to - but it also
involved me looking back and spending a fair amount of time thinking
about what kind of student I was NOT, how I DIDN'T learn. Like you
say, there are many roads that lead to Rome, but the dead-ends have
to be identified too.
