I like how you brought up the point about how Wilfred used his own memories to teach Miss Nancy. She saw the different objects that were important to Wilfred and the objects brought different memories to her mind. As teachers we are responsible for encouraging and helping students learn. We all may see the same object/problem/etc. and think about it/solve it in a variety of different ways (The egg brought two different memories up for Wilfred and Miss Nancy).

Like you said- We have to let others draw their conclusions from our examples!
