Last night I was a little tired so I sat in my rocking chair, gently swaying while in the background I could hear my son with his very brilliant biology tutor, a young advanced medical student. My son likely was also tired for this lesson as it was 8pm. The tutor was likely more tired than usual, too, because when I asked him if he wanted a tea or cappuccino (and he always chooses decf green tea) he surprised me by choosing the caffeinated latter.
As I was drifting off into a meditative state, what caught my attention most about their interaction, was that my son was asking far more questions than usual. In return, the tutor consistently answered each question with: “Well, what do you think?” My son responded each with, “Well I think…” This rhythmic flow went on for the hour. Afterwards, I asked my son, “So, what did you think about the session tonight?” He said, “I learned so much. I understand everything and more better than ever. I think it was my best session.”
It was interesting to observe teaching and learning by asking, rather than telling. What do you think?
