in thread So it's homework - so what?

Another part of being a professional is internally processing those answers into some form of lasting knowledge... "Homework" questions don't bother me because they're homework per se; they bother me because I don't think much learning is taking place. I have a sneaking suspicion that my answer is getting cut'n'pasted straight from the web to the assignment, w/o spending much time bouncing around in the questioners head.

Its the difference between:

  • Can someone give me the answer to #3?
  • Can someone help me understand what question #3 is trying to teach me?

I can almost *guarantee* that these nearly identical questions would evoke vastly different responses from the perlmonks community.
