All of us have served as a teacher outside of our professional capacity. Think of a time when you successfully taught someone a skill, before you were a professional educator, and discuss how you chose the strategies you implemented to help your learner master that skill. For example, have you ever taught someone how to ride a bike, shoot a basketball, or play an instrument? How did you determine what strategies were needed in order for your learner to master the skill, and how did you know when it was mastered?
