  1. “In fact, corporations are the infants of our society - they know very little except how to grow (though they're very good at that), and they howl when you set limits. Socializing them is the work of politics. It's about time we took it up again.” - Bill McKibbenfrom The Bill McKibben Reader: Pieces From an Active Life “In fact, corporations are the infants of our society - they know very little except how to grow (though they're very good at that), and they howl when you set limits.

  10. Teaching Mechanics • Progressive Methodology • Approaches to instructing and correcting: • * Command: the use of explicit direction • * Questioning: the “Socratic Method” • * Guided Discovery: creating exercises in training • in which the players are expected to solve • problems presented by the exercise

  11. Teaching Methods • Stopping the activity: freeze action, review what occurred, rehearse with correct picture, restart with success in the targeted technical execution or tactical choice • Using a natural stoppage to review a success or address a breakdown • Individual mentoring within the ongoing flow of an activity (not commentating or cheerleading) • Usually players respond better to more corrections early in the training session and more free play toward the end of the session
