WHAT TEACHING METHOD ARE YOU SEEING HERE?
(‘one room schoolhouse’, ‘scraps of your attention’, ‘games’)
I write series, tables, definitions, aphorisms, arguments, expositions. (See ‘Koans’.) For color (breaks) I write essays, opinion, nonsense, and diary entries.
Why? best way to teach complexity by using scraps of your attention. a book (which i am still editing) would crush all but the few. These “games” allow a lot of people to learn a little at a time at their pace, with new people coming on board all the time. people go away and return when the are ready. some spin off. some quickly master.
i cant control the classroom so i control the content. very much like running a big one room schoolhouse: repetition at different levels of complexity while asking some students to help others.
it is the old, pre-industrial method of teaching and it is more suitable for teaching where the industrial method is good only for sorting people and filtering them into occupational groups.
IMO we should work and socialize more, exercise more, read more, and run classes like this instead of how we do today.
