Only if you're interested in some very dull papers on educational theory.
Welcome to my world...I'm currently trying to put together a beginner's guide to cognitive load theory for teachers - meta cognition being a big area in ed research and such like but it's certainly not written about by prose stylists, that's for sure.


Beast of Burden
Ha!, yes. Ive just written a research proposal based around cognitive processing and instructional design. Scintillating stuff.

The reward for abstaining is revoked for indulging.
The punishment for withholding is lifted following the offering.

flows and interruptions to flows. ruptures. raptures. breaks.
NOT blockages.
disjunctures/fractured continuity.
the willfully applied jolt/to jump channels
to switch track.

the offering which lifts the curse
the appropriate sacrifice to the appropriate god

and the winds whirl up again
and the ship is no more becalmed.

to perceive when, and to whom
what is an appropriate time to wait
to extend the unbroken line and stretch the moment out
and at which point to force the issue

what is intemperance and what fatalism.

what is staying the course and what is willfulness and obstinance.

what is a testing of our fidelity
and what is inflicted as punishment.

what is patience
and what is despair.
