Ramsey Musallam’s TED talk is interesting to me because he sees teaching with a fresh set of unbiased, excited eyes. He also seems to have a true desire for the well-being and growth of his students. Pointing out that creativity is spurred by curiosity and encouragement, he gives insight into the fact that many teachers, like him in the past, may have been pseudo-teaching. He wants to “confuse and perplex” his students in an attempt to “inform through methods of blatant instruction.” He believes that students asking questions is the seed to real learning, and he draws this from his experiences with his young four year old daughter. My conclusion—all teachers should be forced to have the prerequisite title of “parent” first.
