"First of all, most of us have sat and listened to teachers lecture at us year after year, so we naturally think that is what teaching is all about. Second, there is a kind of commonsense plausibility to this model: if we've never had the opportunity to think about how learning happens, it's reasonable to assume that a teacher, who presumably is more knowledgeable than his students, would simply tell them what he knows."
