One Lecture - I Subscribed!
One Lecture—a Novel, by Marge Pearcy(sic)—and I Subscribed. For a Teacher, any age, using the "Socratic Method," not providing the Answers—just Encouraging, Challenging Questions—BOTH: Teaches the Student, in this case, essential skills in "Critical Thinking," they'll carry for Life; Also, allows the Students to "dig inside" their OWN Minds, for the Answers. In other words: This Professor is Teaching his Students "HOW-TO...Fish," rather than Giving them, the Fish—a Lifelong Skill. "Left or Right, Green or Libertarian" have NO Relevance to what Literature is all about—we must first be Taught Discernment, (not "Brainwashable")—in order to Think for Ourselves. Moreover, to form One's Own Opinion, it must be that We Have The COURAGE, in the Strength of Our OWN Understandings of Life, to attain a Well-Rounded/Well-Developed, Personal Paradigm, which is the only way our Own Ideas/Ideals, lead to Better Decision-Making, in Our/Others' Lives. It's Rare the Teacher whose Classes can be Lived out, through their Students.
