If Knowledge is pictures, then teaching is like photography -1st wide angle shot before details.
If #Learning is putting events into proper contexts or frames of reference which produces #Paradigmshift, then teaching becomes giving the contexts or frames before details are taught. It is not different from taking a wide angle shot before going into focusing on details.
So, how does this render in a novel?
- What is the context – background or a problem? Exposing the problem will reveal the background.
- Since the context has to be what the reader knows – the paradigm – beliefs/concepts of readers?
- Allegorical novels, like structures, organizes ideas of the novel.
So, perhaps, like changing the components of a software system or a factory, we show how changes by the protagonist changes the background.
