I’ve written about how curiosity is one of the most important habits I look for in my students.
Indeed, I think Self-Motivation is actively discouraged. We work to keep the class together, which means making sure the slower-moving kids get extra encouragement to catch up. But it also means that the ones who can move faster on their own are told not to do so. Don’t look ahead, don’t ask me that question right now, don’t push yourself if you aren’t behind.
