Quote

Mistakes typically aren’t random: they reflect a particular way of (mis)understanding and thus provide a teacher with priceless information about what and how the student is thinking. To correct students promptly, or even to overvalue being right, is to lose access to that information. So we could say that great teachers don’t talk very much for two reasons: to maximize student talking but also to maximize teacher listening.
