What Richard has described is actually a 'learning activity' (perhaps accomplished via some 'after-school activity').
'Learning' is part of what I've called the 'teaching+learning' dyad.
It may be quite useful if you (and others) would try and understand that 'teaching' should not EVER stand alone, but should ALWAYS be treated as an integral part of the above-noted dyad.
In the 'conventional' and the 'traditional' educational systems, many often do try to treat 'teaching' in isolation, quite apart from the 'learning activity'. No wonder both teaching and learning are so very ineffective in our existing systems!
