We have all heard that by teaching others, we get better ourselves. I did a little research on this and found a couple of interesting articles and I'd like to share some of that information with you.
thousands of years, people have known that the best way
to understand a concept is to explain it to someone else.
While we teach, we learn, said the Roman philosopher
enlisted to tutor others, these researchers have found,
work harder to understand the material, recall it more accurately
and apply it more effectively. In what scientists have dubbed
the protégé effect, student teachers
score higher on tests than pupils who are learning only
for their own sake.
