    RE: Rules for teachers

    So how do you teach your class to listen and visualise what they are
    supposed to do?
    
    A class consist of many people who all learn differently - some needs to see
    words, others diagrams, some can remember and some can only learn by hearing
    the words.  And how do you learn to listen to a brief/recap if you have
    never heard one?  Which is presumably why so many people stand on the floor
    and look adoringly at their .... wee green book/piece of paper instead of
    their partner.
    
    The same goes for music - how do you teach people to listen to the music if
    they only hear one kind?

    Amid all of the recent clutter, some might have missed this excellent
    paragraph from Anselm.
    Should be required reading for all teachers and candidates.

    IMHO, the full written instructions for a dance should never be read
    aloud --
    not in class and definitely not in a social situation. They're much too
    tedious for that! Their place is on the teacher's desk when he or she
    prepares their lesson, and their purpose is to communicate to the teacher
    how
    the dance is meant to go, so they can figure out how to explain it to the
    class -- often preferably by way of demonstration rather than reading out
    chapter and verse, and not necessarily from the beginning of the dance
    straight through to the end.
