How can we develop a series of questions to lead them in their own discovery of particular principles? I found a cool website that gave an example of this in teaching kids binary math. Rick’s site is called The Socratic Method: Teaching by Asking Instead of by Telling, by Rick Garlikov.
It has a fascinating example of teaching elementary kids how to do base-2 math. How to read binary code is hard enough for most adults, and Rick teaches this class how to do it with some pre-planned questions that lead the children to the next conclusion. Great example.
This can be applied to leadership too, and I’d like to come up with a specific application.
