The instructor, she/he, at head of class
scans the classroom and sees all the students.
They inhabit the room like Inert gas,
atoms of reason float in abundance.
Who will learn and who will remain inert?
The instructor may not ask of such things.
It is enough to keep a group alert,
to teach them rather than keep them guessing.
Many moments are spent in discussion,
helping fresh minds understand the subject.
The instructor must avoid confusion.
Answers are tested to see if correct.
Future students may let their knowledge fade.
Others will find work and careers will be made.
