On Making Good Students.
Bullough, Robert V., Jr.
Journal of General Education, v38 n2 p85-100 1986
Warns that methods of molding "good students" (e.g., teacher-dominated decision making, lack of student participation/response, and solitary classwork) ensure conformity, docility, passivity, and dependence. Recommends coaching, rather than lecturing, for skill development; Socratic dialogue; environments that reduce fear of failure; and learning activities that encourage social responsibility. (DMM)
