Learn by Doing
Bess is a clerk in an office. She is learning how to use the shredder. Gail, Bess’s boss, shows her how to use it.
Gail points to the on/off switch and turns the shredder on. “Keep your hands and clothes away from the shredder when it is in use. The blades are sharp,” says Gail. She tells Bess to remove staples and paper clips from the paper before shredding it. She also says to shred five or fewer sheets of paper at a time.
“I would like to try it. I learn best by doing,” says Bess. She removes the staple and puts the paper in the shredder. It stops. “I put in too much. I’ll put in five sheets next time. I’m glad I could try it. I learn from my mistakes.” Bess says.
