Coyote Teaching

Coyote teaching is a method of teaching and mentoring made popular by Tom Brown, Jr. and Jon Young. A coyote teacher never gives direct answers, and answers questions with questions, inspiring the student to dig deeper into the lessons and search for embedded or connected lessons. A successful coyote teacher inspires the student to learn on his/her own until the student no longer depends on the coyote teacher. Naturally, when a student is trained by a coyote teacher, the student becomes adept to the style of teaching and can, in turn, mentor more students in this method. A common saying among coyote teachers and students is, "When raised by a coyote one becomes a coyote".
