Mary shared an interesting article posted this week in the Faculty Focus Teaching Professor Blog titled “She Didn’t Teach. We Had to Learn it Ourselves.” It poses some good questions surrounding just what is your job as a “good” teacher? Should you explain everything clearly to students? Should you underscore all of the important information and answer every question that your students ask? Where do you draw the line? No, really, where do YOU draw the line? We’d love to hear in our comments area, your thoughts on this.
I personally like the idea of letting students think for themselves. But, I feel that they should know what you are doing and understand why you are doing it, otherwise it can be very frustrating.
