“Let us not lead to the idea that studying to the letter is the best course of action to learning. That does not teach someone how to use a skill, that teaches someone how to only use a skill in that specific method.

Copying is great when you want your students to stay inside a box, but no meaningful knowledge will ever be gained through simply staying inside the box or in the lines.

No, we went beyond the boundaries of the comfortable and safe; the boundary of what we already knew.”
