As I was teaching this week, one of my pupils made a mistake. I drew a line through it and asked her to repeat the task... Instead, I get this answer, "If you're so smart, why don't you solve the problem?"
Also with this student, I'm working on leading her through the steps of thinking out something with questions. "Why do you ask these questions if you know the answers? You do know the answers, don't you?" She isn't buying the Socratic method at the moment.
I'll be banging my head against the wall if you need me!
