I like to encourage the students to think through problems and make logical connections. This is what I believe makes the technical rules of English and writing memorable. If a student asks a question about something they don't know, I am likely going to counter it with a probing question and lead them to the conclusion through their own discovery instead of telling them the answer right away.
