Shorts – 056

Proposed optimized teaching method:

“Shadow Boxing”

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!
