Jerry Goebel recently retold the story of Adele Diamond, groundbreaking neuroscientist at the University of British Columbia, who asks every teacher to consider this question, "If you and I were driving to a new destination, which of us would learn the route better, the driver or the passenger?"
The usual answer is the driver who we believe will know the route better because she experienced it, she didn’t observe it." And, then, Diamond asks, "Do you have a classroom of drivers or passengers?"
And, that, there is one great question. Is the journey of faith one to be undertaken actively or passively….? And how do you program your efforts accordingly?
