    Why Do I Need to Learn This?

    When faced with a difficult concept or task, students often ask, Why do we have to learn this?

    What is behind this familiar and frustrating response? In most cases, John Mark suggests, the question signals confusion or a lack of stimulation. More important than giving students the right answer is giving them clear instruction while cultivating the virtue of curiosity.
