Friday Wisdom – Teaching

“The best way to learn is to teach.”

This is something my father told me whenever I announced that I needed to learn something.

More wise thoughts next week.  Possibly one of my own.

  1. My dad would always tell me, “It wasn’t meant to be,” when I’d be upset about things not going my way. I thought that was pretty good advice, too.

    Hmm….I always thought that it was supposed to involve staying up until 3AM cramming with lots of coffee! 🙂 Now I know why I didn’t get an A on my college Linear Algebra test!

    I think having to explain something verbally – teach – is always a good way to learn about the subject – our own strong and weak points and learn accordingly.

    I’d not heard that before, but it certainly makes sense and I’ll remember it.


  6. I teach that to my students, too. Often, I have them teach the class–including me!

    That’s a great quote. Never heard it before but it’s very true.

    Wise words. I have found that I didn’t know as much as I thought I did whenever I prepared to teach someone else how to do a task.
