        Subject: Perry's scheme | plan-do-review | Re: [Humanist] 33.817: tweets explored and pondered


I may have caught the plan-do-review fever from Robert Royar's suggestion of a
possible isomorphism between Delphi pools and High/Scope which led me to read
the Wikipedia entry about William Perry's nine point program [1] which
accessed May 4, 2020 nets a neat table and outline of pedagogical progressions
-- Perry's scheme outlines a student's nine-position progression from dualist
thinking to relativist thinking and then to commitment -- and ask: how would
this transfer to a coding environment? Here's my stab at turning the nine
points into ten:

The Manual Knows
Some hackers are correct, some misleading
There are different hacks possible, some better than others
Reading RFCs (Request for Comments[2]) is like a history lesson in collective
concept formation
(a) Everyone has right to their own opinion  (b) The authorities don't want the
right answers. They want us to think in a certain way
Everything is relative but not equally valid (unless it's validated)
You have to make your own decisions (You code it, you own it)
First Commitment (e.g. for this particular topic I think that …)
Several Commitments (e.g. for these topics I think that …)
Believe own values, respect others, be ready to learn

to think is often to sort, to store and to shuffle: humble, embodied tasks
