Here is a little peek behind the curtain that is education (I will occasionally pull the curtain back on aspects of education, I am sure you will be intrigued with what you find): As an educator I can walk into a classroom of students and through (1) asking them a series of questions, (2) subsequently responding to their questions, and then (3) asking a different series of questions, actually have students arrive at the conclusions I was hoping for. All the while, they feel like they have actually arrived at these conclusions on their own. So here is the question:
Is that just good teaching?
Is that incredible manipulation?
Yes folks that’s it, that is all I’ve got. What is the difference between teaching and manipulation? Have at it.
