It's only ONE way, not THE way
It's about a willingness to change some aspect of
your teaching – to make a gradual shift toward
engagement and active learning.

think you are going to ask them something – they
write more down and are better prepared and
engaged; they remember more!

eagerness to learn, to be right, to master"
