Who you are
Everything that takes place throughout any learning process is painted with impressions, culture, outlooks, fortes, needs, and wants. All part of why learners often like things better if they have a choice, if they have a voice.

It happens quite often that learners perceive the content of a lesson - for instance - to be fragmented and not building blocks to a profounder understanding. Not able to recognize "real" purpose and significance behind it, they feel that they are only scanning what is to be learned so they can duplicate that content on a test. Yet, even when the content of a lesson is structured in a specific order, learner and teacher both - whether they are aware of it or not - re-construct the structure in the process. “A strong spirit transcends rules.”
