Teaching is like mining for gold. The gold is not scattered all over the surface, and miners have to dig deeper and deeper. Yet, sometimes tragic accidents happen and the mine collapses, killing all of its workers underground.
The hour that we collectively spent pouring over exams and remembering classroom interaction worked well for differentiation. Whereas before there had emerged a leader from each group and some very bored individuals, we saw a marked improvement in group cohesiveness and cooperation.
Some don't believe us. How can students learn quickly without force? Without canes, chanting, and threats? Without studying 7 days a week?
Gauging the atmosphere and feeling of the young teachers is a fine art.
Every year, America settles down for a turkey dinner for Thanksgiving. This year, one of our former students, Thein Min Swe, had the privilege and pleasure to find himself in the US during this most festive time of year. Now at Harvard, pursuing a Master of Public Health, we caught up with him one Sunday afternoon to learn how he's doing.
Our teacher trainees are realizing that learning is not just what happens in the classroom. It's important that we build a stronger community and help each other out. This weekend, we joined the students in cleaning the monastery compound.
