Feeding Chickens as Education
1. Put some content in a
bucket.
2. Gather the students and
throw it out.
3. If the students get a bit of
content, they get it. If not,
they dont.
4. Continue this practice daily
until all of the content has
been distributed and it is time
to harvest the benefits of
instruction.
