  1. Teaching method in the class gives the students the tools to learn…so that is so necessary. Maybe some of the things we teach may be irrelevant in the future…but that is crystal ball gazing! We have a responsibility to teach children the thinking and reflecting process so that they can make connections now and in the future.
