This week I'm sitting in an IBM enablement class for intro Java, servlets and JSP's, and the toolset (I think those are SW244, 284, and 287 for those keeping score at home).  Since I've taught all this material many times, it's a bit of a challenge keeping quiet when I disagree with an approach.

I'm reminded of the three phases of an instructor's development.  In phase one, he tells you everything he knows.  In phase two, he tells you everything he's learned since then.  Finally, in phase three, he tells you what you need to know.  I always struggle with getting from phase two to three.

It's good to see some of my instructor friends again, though.  (Except Garrett, who's probably the only one reading this.)
