Instructors teaching wrongSome great posts, thoughtful and illustrate a lot of experience, I hesitate to join in but here's a little idea.
Instructors oftentimes teach ABCDEF in that order and deviate very little from this pathway. This is usually wrong as all people/students are different.. While ABC will work for student #1 and may work very poorly for student #2-when in fact ACF may work for that student. I see instructors teach in a very rote fashion at times and are not flexible.
Clarification: I am not talking aboout all instructors just some and I am definitely not talking about preceeding posts and almost all these posts show creativeness and flexib ility. Having taught a lot (not necessarily skiing), and most of my teaching having to do with human behavior I have become very aware of the ABCDEF method of teaching and watching the human experienc e deviate from this normal as a reaction to different outside stimuli.
