leaning is fun

My students at Marc Adams School of Woodworking are doing well and most of my 16 students already have boxes on their benches that are nearing completion.

Learning is fun. You start with the interests of the student and things flow freely from there. When student interest is secured, progress is rapid. The model that serves children serves adults as well. And vise-versa. But politicos and administrators are too obsessed with measuring to allow actual free-flow learning to take place.

Today we will have demonstrations on oversize box joints. I will give personalized instruction in the finer points of mitered box joints. We will begin a fresh series of additional demonstrations, driven in part by what the students ask of me.

Make, fix, create, and allow for others to learn likewise.
