Lecture Needs Discussion; Discussion Needs Lecture

The modern educator draws too neat and stiff a distinction between lecture and discussion. A good teacher lectures during discussion, discusses during lecture. The line which separates the two is not nearly as neat as we think.

Lecture is the authority of the teacher; discussion is the autonomy of the student. Obviously, these things need each other, even as God gives Job autonomy but does not hesitate to lecture Job.
