The e-mail we get from our customers is often brilliant. For example:
“My husband did not watch the instructional video at first and was spending a long time on each question, acting like he was supposed to know them after one viewing and feeling “stupid” for not getting it right away.
Even after watching the instructions twice, I noticed he was still reluctant to let go of this learning style.
I’ve noticed in my teaching (math, mostly) that many people have had this style beaten into them and they enforce it on themselves now:
Receive information ==> regurgitate information ==> get punished for not getting it right.”
