that makes sense to me.

i think this, as with all teaching, is heavily context-sensitive. i
can imagine approaches to teaching beginner programmers that would in
fact allow for and benefit from talking about both dynamic and static
scope. but if the context is not one that allows for that, then it
might be right not to, granted.

on the other hand, it might be a sign that the context needs to be
changed first.
