When teaching entails solely presenting information, we leave too much to chance because we ask students to navigate on their own. Instead, we can provide learning communities where people learn from others and through their own contributions. We can make it possible for students to engage in the type of thinking that people engage in who are competent in a discipline. We can help students reach high standards even when they have set the bar low, and we can refuse to give up, even when students have given up on themselves.
