Proposed optimized teaching method:
Challenge: A learner desires to grow at a reasonable pace.
Challenge: The teacher does not know the desired pace.
Solution: The teacher’s approach for each recursion is this:
Ask the student to select a category, then // Act accordingly
A. They are mentally caught up and ready to be challenged. // Box with them (e.g. lecture; e.g. assign them an independent task with clarified expectations for mistakes)
B. They need time, or would like to ask a question. // Wait, listen.
C. They need either a lecture/restatement/demonstration of the current/next topic. // Let them shadow (provide your support however needed)
D. They are not interested anymore. // I’ll let you decide!
