Thank you for the Article Brad. I remembered when I first trained, a final year student came in to talk to us second year students asked what we were teaching. The reply we gave was our subject area. He then asked what are you really teaching and finally the response came from the group, “to Teach children how to learn and we were going to do that through our subject area.”
So yes the teacher/ student relationship is the key and together we unlock the mystery. Passion for learning is infectious but passion for standing with the learner and teaching them how to evaluate themselves so they can communicate their need so they can formulate the question that will lead to the learning can start an explosion. of self discovery and direction.
