Teaching traditional 
Is based on transmission
But is receiver tuned?
Cannot transmit culture.
Culture needs discovery.
A teacher must accept
To hear the students’ words
And work with their conceptions
Constructing  day by day.
No discipline succeeds
With rules imposed as truth.
Discussion is a need
To improve a conscious thought.
Become constructivists!

    Hallo Mario, Profound write this! Culture has to be experienced not taught - you've said it very well. Very often we strive to impact without bothering to find out what was there before. nice reminder. Very well penned!

    Thank you, Vicky. This has beeen my method of teaching for more than 40 years and has been enforced by experience with children 3 to 5. They have excellent intuition and you must listen more than explain. So constructivism becomes a sort of faith
