Meditation Of The Day: May 31

 

 

 

 

 

 

Explanations are never of great educational value. The one truly effective method of teaching is by example. Show children what they must do, do it in front of them. A true educator is someone who serves as a model. If you are a model , this is sufficient, you are the greatest teacher; the children may understand nothing, but they imitate you. It is useless to give them explanations and to preach at them. Show them what to do and they will do as you do, and perhaps they may do it even better and faster than you. All true education is summarized in one word: example.
