Im back to my routine, my mind is still away on holiday.

I spent a day teaching a student a wrong method on Saturday. Only a minor error. Causing the student great difficulty.
Half way through the day I suddenly realized why he was struggling.
You get to a point where it becomes to embarrassing to admit your faults & you think of a way to subtly change the way you are doing things to save face.
No problem.
At that moment he asked the exactly the right question to make me feel silly.
I glad he worked it out for himself, shows he was thinking.
,but his curiosity got the better of me.

Isn't it fun, though, to have such thoughtful (thinking) students? Can he draw, too?

Sorry Hoss, not a clue. I was teaching him to sail.

The best thing about embarassment is that it provides some good blogfodder!

Well, I bet he'll never forget what he learned, and that he's pleased he figured it out for himself. That was a great learning experience you set up for him!!
