      The more I work with teachers trained in Thinking Tools, the more I notice the difference in their students.

      Thanks Cas for your post.
      I do understand the overall point, but what is meant by Teach “demarcation”. That word needs some clarification.

      Then the third line about mind wondering. What are the circumstances that would cause a child’s mind to wonder?
      I was thinking about issues of nutrition, home circumstances.

      Hi Sylvia,
      Demarcation is not part of my normal Thinking Tools vocabulary, maybe a pronunciation challenge from my side.

      A wandering not wondering mind is a natural phenomenon and occurs with all.

      You start thinking about something and then after a few second your mind hyperlinked to other ideas.

      If only the teaching fraternity acceptd this as natural, we can uplift the education system.

      Hi Cas,
      That’s a good point – I think that relates to free association – in my experience it often leads to the light-bulb moments.

      Have you read any of Dr Muthivhi’s articles on school children in Venda? Do a google search – I think you will be interested in his findings.
