Re: teaching and learning from an Angelic perspective
So Qarael had the old guy that knows all the ins and outs and how to sleep on the job without getting caught and decided to take on a protege, I've got students, Veritas believes she's got somebody popular, and some had two very high up Archangels, got quite a rambling of opinions here.
Now here's the big question as well, what was taught and how was it taught?
I believe that most of my teaching style was a nature rather than nurture style. I was patient, I would give a lesson and then ask for application and was not afraid to allow my students to mess it up a few times before teaching. One learns best when frustrated by failure, so I believe anyway. I do know that for me and my students, a battle oriented curriculum was there, a lot like a traditional dojo, the way of fighting along with the why of fighting. Patience was a lesson I fought hard to teach, and the idea that you should never engage in an activity without the will to see it through, never speak words that one is not comfortable with any party hearing and most assuredly that the speaker is not ready to back up.
I always taught that whatever is right, is what is right, if you believe it, stand up for it and never back down from doing things the right way, this is why of the three students I recall, I believe two are extremely pure and one is Fallen and confident in the why and still does what he believes is right (though regrettably I do not know the circumstances of the alleged Fall).
The maximum effective range of an excuse is zero meters.
