Reach then teach 2
Posted January 13, 2015on:
Yesterday I started explaining why it is important to reach kids first before attempting to teach them.
There is another important reason to do this: Every child is different.
The content of the video (the birds and the bees; human sexual reproduction) is the same. But as the video illustrates, the kids enter with very different prior knowledge, expectations, and reactions. If we rely on only one method, they will revolt.
If we observe and listen to them carefully, we learn how better to teach them.
