The Curse of Knowledge

A lot of us, once we get so proficient on something … and when we teach someone about that something, we tend to speed along … forgetting something valuable:

Teaching it from the beginner’s eyes/perspective.

The curse of knowledge… we forget that perspective.

Model it…

1) model complex skills one step at a time and repeat when necessary

2) learners to follow along — practice the small skills in small drills — until mastery … and then build on that with the next connecting skill.

Go slow… don’t speed along… break the curse of knowledge… teach it from the beginner’s eyes… one small skill at a time… small connecting skills… via drills and scrimmages.
