I learned the following from Bob Patrick. At the beginning of every school year in August, I always tell my students that I expect them to do their 50% in class, which is simply paying attention in class, and I will do my own 50% of supplying them with understandable input in different ways. If we both do our 50%, then they will be successful in my class. However I also tell them that I will not do more than my 50% - that is my boundary. I will do everything I can to help out students up to that boundary.
- "You go over the material so many different ways. It's hard NOT to learn it."
- "I don't know how I know Latin - I just do."
- "You're right - I just have to pay attention in class."
