QUESTION: Who is doing the "constructing, telling, asking, probing"?
If the teacher, WHY??? Seems like having a P.E. teacher doing the laps
for his/her class, to be sure they are done correctly and efficiently.
If it's the students who are doing this, then you basically agree with the
constructivists. :)
