Top Tips for Teaching Woodworking No. 2 - Admit to Limits
 “I don’t know” is the most powerful thing a teacher can say. Especially when followed up with “Let’s find out.”

It’s unrealistic for a teacher to be an expert on everything. And while it isn’t hard to ‘fake it’, why bother, students will know and that’ll call into question everything you’ve ever taught them and will definitely affect how much they absorb from you in the future.

This is an educational environment. Showing others how to learn is just as important as providing what to learn. It leads to reduced anxiety to experimentation and a willingness to fail among your students. Two incredibly beneficial characteristic’s to develop.

So if you don’t know something just say so and be in awe of how it leads to greater learning.

Smallest increment allowed by patreon is a dollar. Which if we reach 4 vids/mo. equals $4. Realistically I think we'll be doing 2-3 videos a month. But remember, Patreon lets you cap your monthly contribution at a specific dollar amounts.

To show my appreciation for the $3 level of patreonage you guys and gals will get stuff designed and made by wortheffort. A couple times a year I'll do a mass mailer to all patreons at this level at that time and you just might get stickers, toys, art files, or whatnot.  Yes its random, yes it's spontaneous, yes you'll never know what your gonna get, but... that's the fun!

You'll also get early access to the videos and the textbook teasers.
