Active learning

Third-wave Feminism Defends the Idea of Women as a Servicing Class | Clarissa's Blog

lamestllama: “I often wonder if it would help for self reflexiveness to be taught in school. Some many people don’t have a realistic view of themselves.”

I’m skeptical that it can be taught in schools, because no matter how anyone might twist and turn to reformulate the meaning of being in school, students are there for passive learning, and you cannot learn passively what you are.

You need to learn it experimentally.

If kids were able to run around, have adventures, get lost in the forest, break their arms and come back fighting, they would then gain a realistic view of themselves.
