Wikipedia article about Carol Dweck, who does research in, among other things, people's implicit views of where ability comes from.

"One of the ways you (as a teacher) can know you're on the right track is if your students ask 'stupid' questions. You can pat yourself on the back. If students feel safe asking you what a terminal is, then you've succeeded in creating a space where they feel comfortable exposing what they don't know. You should consider a stupid question one of the greatest triumphs of your teaching experience."
