Children need to be personally involved in their education - from the moment it starts - and more self-aware of their own abilities and applying learned skills to problems.
Toreshka, I respectfully disagree. You're asking these kids to grasp with maturity their need for educatrion and the benefits thereof they stand to reap. In truth, most of them can't get their heads out of their asses long enough to concentrate on the blackboard much less contemplate their futures! They're too busy thinking about how to kill Glog and get on to Level 8.
I believe it's less the kids' job to learn
than it is the "Educators" job to Inspire
the kid to learn! That's what "Educators" do. Teachers just spoon-feed prepackaged pablum and work out their tenure. I had to tell my youngest's 6th Grade teacher in a meeting she and I had with her Principal that she really needed to seek another line of work, and for that very reason: she was pissy because the kids weren't just falling into line and allowing her to funnel her Training Plan into them so her life could be easier, and she was taking it out on the kids.
If a kid can't be allowed to be a kid when he's young, then when?
(By the way, Glog may
be killed by using the Mortar with the Pestle, which has the Pellet with the Poison. The Flagon with the Dragon has the Brew that is True!)
