We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
That's true of anything really. If you want to really know it, you have to try to teach it. You'll find many things you're fuzzy about and need to tune up.
I found this when I became an Argentine tango teacher. I really had to examine things I did to explain it to others. This led to really looking at why I did those things and how I could improve getting to the outcome.
Also, if you ever write a simple program for others to use, you learn a lot just from trying to write the instruction sheet and then more when the user goes off in on a complete tangent on input from what you thought was limited.
It would be interesting to see if the "help" to the instructor declines over repeated iterations of teaching. I would suspect after a few times, the new "explanations" would have all been thought out but there would always be some surprises.
The more I think about it, the more I approve. That's why having a 5-year-old teach the younger sibling to read makes the elder a better reader. At least you can enjoy the dialogue as (s)he goes through the rule of "if it ends in 'e', then the preceding -- usually lisped -- vowel says its own name." What a kick in the head!
