[QUOTE]Originally posted by Munchkin Man: [QB] [QUOTE]Originally posted by bdgee: [qb] Those students may have been proud of following orders. That is a pity.[/qb][/QUOTE]_____ To the contrary. It is a cause for celebration. It is a time to rejoice. The mastery of arithmetical algorithms requires the sequential application of a series of steps. The Munchkin Man calls them "steps." You call them "orders." The Munchkin Man is of the persuasion that mathematics is learned best in a linear fashion through a prescribed sequence of steps. This means you master Step A before you go on to Step B. This means you master Step B before you go on to Step C. And so on. If a student gets stuck on Step C, you give the student additional practice with Step C. If needed, you break down Step C into a series of smaller Step Cs. Then when Step C is finally mastered, you go on to Step D. But you call these "orders." This reminds the Munchkin Man of something his 9th grade Science teacher told his class one day. _____ "You're going to forget a lot of your Science. You're going to forget a lot of your Social Studies. You're going to forget a lot about all of your subjects. But the most important lesson you will learn in this class is how to obey and follow orders. If you can learn how to do that, then you can learn anything else." _____ What this teacher was trying to say is that learning how to obey and follow orders is all about learning the discipline it takes to learn. It's that simple. Now then. The Munchkin Man has a question for you. What exactly is your problem with authority? Best Wishes, Munchkin Man [/QB][/QUOTE]
