“The Gift of Fire”


 It’s funny, because I want to become a teacher when I get older, so this question might come up again in the future (I know it will for my student-teachers). I think if I had to teach children how to think, I would give them a certain thing and make them find something that goes off that that. Like a math problem. If they know how much each number is, why not give them something a level over what they’re doing? Instead of having the same number problems, like 2+2=4, over and over again, I would give them 3+1=___ to have them put the numbers together in a different way than they have already learned. And yes, eventually they will learn that 3 plus 1 gives the the same sum as 2 plus 2, but if they haven’t learned that yet then it is making them go beyond what they already know and what they think they know.
