How kids learn Most Effectively...

Blog quote #1017...  
"The dream begins most of the time, with a teacher who believes in you, who tugs and pushes and leads you onto the next plateau, sometimes poking  you with a sharp stick-- called the TRUTH ." -Dan Rather
Let's all give thanks for teachers, leaders, parents and any adults who do this for their pupils. It's the best way to help them learn- as quick and as fast and as prudent as they can. It's also called the school of hard knocks. The kids don't truly benefit from 'soft education' nice adults, who coddle and do all the heavy lifting for the student. 
The students who really advance are the ones who try, experiment, test, tweak and try again and fail and keep digging, scratching, and clawing. That's called learning by doing on your own. Also called hands on experience.
So thanks to all you teachers who further the youth's learning curve with some no nonsense, tough mentoring. In the long run, guess what? The kids will thank you as well.
That's my view...what say you?
More great things await
