Found while preparing for next week's camp:
"Do not try to satisfy your vanity by teaching a great many things. Awaken people's curiosity. It is enough to open minds, do not overload them. Put there just a spark. If there is some good inflammable stuff, it will catch fire."
-- Anatole France, French poet, journalist, and novelist
I find this difficult to do but of the utmost importance. It is far easier to lecture and spoon-fed; it is natural to want to be the gatekeeper of information. However, I find children show the most excitement and future learning when I merely direct them towards a pursuit and learn along with them. I like to think that I am not a teacher but rather a guide.
