Abstract

In a typical class, the teacher assumes the role of a ring master and gives step wise instruction to the class with little room for any exploration. Instructions like take one red link, put it on the table. Take two red links, join them and lay them next to one” and “do as I say”. A sensitive teacher would put the manipulatives to better use by withholding instructions like 'use red links' or 'put two links next to one' and so on. “ “
