Frankly, Michael I agree with you. I have a 19 year old son who has been
in enriched language arts for the past four years, and has two children's
book manuscripts that he is working on- corrections, language changes etc.
His composition teacher has submitted many of his writings to contests, but
even he is does not sound as sophisticated.

I also, have a 13 years old son who is a talented math student. As a
skilled student he is completely unaware of how pedagogy effects his
learning because he basically learns no matter what his teachers do.

More often than not, I have found that skilled students are totally unaware
of pedagogy that is effective for them because they have never had to
analyze it. It is infact, most often, students who are 'struggling' that
have a need to examine what is happening that 'does not' work for them.

Kind of cowardly to hide behind the guise of a child wouldn't you say? I
think you uncovered an imposter;-)
