Tell me and I’ll forget. Show me and I may remember. Involve me and I’ll understand! (Quoted by Benjamin Franklin)
A great reminder to teachers. The 3-step process is teaching or doing it alone, showing the learner how to do it, and working with him in doing it. Then the learner will be able to move out on his own to reproduce what he has learned. When we limit ourselves to just teaching by lecture or rote memorization, we limit the student’s opportunity to learn well by example and practice.
And you yourself must be an example to them by doing good works of every kind. Let everything you do reflect the integrity and seriousness of your teaching (Titus 2:7).
