Reading about how to play basketball

 I saw an interesting educational blog... describing how up in arms we would be if our children came home from school and we asked them that mandatory question - "what did you learn today?"  And when they responded "basketball" and when asked if they practiced passing or dribbling or shooting, they responded "oh no, we talked/read about it...."  Do you think there would be a little outrage?

I challenge you the same way - how much of what you teach in your cb classes by having them read or talk would be better off taught by practicing hands on or with active involvement in role plays?

It's frequently said that birth is not a cognitive activity...if an impartial observer watched our classes, what percentage of time would they say we spent preparing them through mental processes?
