Sterling ...breaking the student out of their own limited worldview and encouraging them to adopt a very different perspective, my methods can be very effective because I seek to connect the material to the student's own experiences and interests. Without that connection, there can be no motivation and without motivation there can be no learning.... My teaching philosophy is based, first and foremost, on sparking an interest in the subject matter. Whether it's turning history from a monotonous recitation of names and dates into an epic narrative of adventure, or breaking the student out of their own limited worldview and encouraging them to adopt a very different perspective, my methods can be very effective, because I seek to connect the material to the student's own experiences and interests. Without that connection, there can be no motivation, and without motivation there can be no learning. I very much believe in an interdisciplinary approach to understanding any subject, and often employ a variety of methodologies in the classroom. I am also fond of employing unorthodox teaching methodologies, including roleplaying, crisis simulations, and games.
