How can SOLEs be implemented without causing students to shun necessary but "boring" skills?
I think with the approach Mitra is using, the students don't learn to encapsulate a body of knowledge into a subject like "geography" until *after* they have already used it to answer questions. If you open with a question instead of with presenting a body of knowledge, then a student's curiosity is engaged, and you've pretty much won. Also, in my experience of teaching, whether you lead with questions or with knowledge, if students are interested in most of what you give them, then they will trust you enough to take a bit extra on faith.
