Alleged Myth 4
You must teach a lot of information at once or your students will get bored.
This myth is only true if you are teaching a crop of students who measure their progress by the accumulation of techniques.
In case you have not noticed, due to the influence of television, we are constantly bombarded with information. To cope with this, children, and perceptive adults, have learned to assimilate information quickly. If you have ever driven at a hundred mile an hour speed for an extended period of time and then had to slow to 70 miles per hour, you know how boring the slower, but still high, speed seems. Today’s students are used to information coming at them hot and heavy. If it does not, they get bored. If you do not keep students stimulated, they will leave. This is another reason debunkers usually do not have commercially successful schools.
