One of the principles of teaching: follow the child's lead

"One of the principles of teaching is to follow the child's lead. Because if the child is into something, that's something they're ready to learn. It's not a matter of just throwing stuff at a kid. You basically say: what is this child likely to be comfortable doing right now? What has he got the capabilties for? And then you do something that stretches him just a little."
