Lesson 4, Topic 1
- In what ways are such pedagogical principles as virtue education, wonder and curiosity, and contemplation part of mimetic teaching?
- What does Andrew mean when he says that ideas don’t belong to anyone?
- What does Andrew mean when he says there is no such thing as rote memory?
- How can it be that a teacher could not really like math, and yet love it?
