Independent Thinking

“Good teachers are best when students barely know they exist,

Not so good when students always obey and acclaim them,

Worst when students despise them.

Of good teachers, when their work is done and their aims fulfilled,

The student will say, I did this myself.”—Lao-Tzu


This week, think about your role in the classroom. Do you allow the students to come to conclusions on their own? Do you give them the credit for their guided realizations?
