DOU
michibi(ku)
meaning: guide, lead

指導 == shidou == guidance
伝導 == dendou == (electrical) conduction, transmission


Bottom radical is 'hand/measure' (寸), here meaning 'careful use of the hand' and 'road/way' (道). Thus, 'to lead someone carefully along the road by hand'. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Measured guiding hand leads along way.'
