Why would a journal take 2 years (and still counting) to make a decision on a manuscript?
- Abubakar Abubakar Usman
I've sent my manuscript to a high impact journal and it took them a year to return the manuscript to me for corrections and it has been a year since then without further updates. Initially, I receive a reply when I send email for update. However, for almost 6 months I receive no reply when I send email to the editorial assistant for update.
I would like to hear from senior colleagues and those who are likely editors of academic journals here the possible reasons for taking such a lengthy time to make a decision on a manuscript and what would you advise me to do.

What do you think of this principle of teaching: Do not teach what you know as an expert?
- Domenico Masciotra
Teach only what the student is able to learn. Or better, teach only the most of what your can actively share with your student.
Some eventual arguments:
1. Knowledge is not transmittable.
2. The meaning of knowledge can’t be the same within deep experience or within poor experience.
3. The locus of knowledge to be learned is in between, let’s say, the master of dance and the student, both in action. The beginner dancer dances better because of the help of the master.
In this example, the new knowledge seems to be "in between" (master vs learner). It is not completely the deep knowledge of the Master since he reduces his possibilities to adapt them to the beginner, and it is neither the actual possibilities of the beginner since he dances better only because he is helped by the master. So there is some knowledge enacted "in between" by both of them. What is then the nature of this knowledge that is short of what the teacher knows and beyond what the beginner already knows?
Comment: The term expert is used here in a very wide sense: it just means that the teacher knows better and more than the student. For example, one doesn't need to be an expert mathematician to teach math at the primary level. At the university level, at least, you would need to be an expert to teach math.

How is explicit instruction thwarting students' learning? In what ways can we instill in our students the feeling of exploration and discovery?
- Jose ISAIAS Lobo Fontalvo
In Science News (2011) it is stated that: "Don't Show, Don't Tell? Direct Instruction Can Thwart Independent Exploration." Is this true?
Literacy is important not only as a means of access to new information and as an extension of memory. Rather, it is argued that writing is a means to the awareness of the implicit properties of language. This awareness is expressed through new concepts for referring to what is said, what is meant by it, what it implies, of what it is composed, and...
