The problem with teaching something that you know is that you already know it, and it holds no surprises. In consequence, you don't see other paths, and can't let the student make all the mistakes that have to be made in order to really understand something. If you can afford the time, it's probably best to let the student bumble along, and make all kinds of mistakes and learn that in actuality there are no real mistakes, just different ways of getting to places that you didn't know you wanted to go to. There's a lot to be said, of course, for staying with the tried-and-true, because much of the time that will actually get you where you want to go. But when you want to get to someplace that neither you nor anyone else has been, it helps to have a prepared and open mind, and be educated in the principles of following your nose instead of the map. I've got nothing against maps, mind you, but they don't have innovations and serendipity and happy accidents marked on them; only what has already happened; only where somebody else has already been; only the known. The right answer is not on the test page, to be marked "a", "b", "c", or "d". The right answer is not on the test page, and neither is the right question.

Article IV: The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
