When the student becomes the teacher

When it comes to truly understanding and synthesizing information, being able to teach it to someone else is a great benchmark for assessing mastery. When your child is preparing for an exam, have them go beyond simple definitions and explain the material to you in a clear, logical way. If they’re able to teach you the material and answer your insightful questions, you can both be confident that they truly understand it.
