However, instead of teaching our students how to be creative, they teach students that grades are more important and define who you are as a person. According to (Soliman, 2015), “Schools advise students to be creative and express themselves but do not give the time to do so. I believe that learning how to think to use those facts should be what education is about. Creativity is an acquired skill and learning what to do with facts is the key that builds on originality.” To Conclude, Children all around the nation are bursting with excitement with their creative imagination and should be allowed to put these tasks to work. Education systems should practice on making focusing more on creativity than just logic.
Competitions are used by many teachers at the root level to develop the talents of their students. “We need more, not less, competition in schools. We need to teach students how to win with dignity and how to lose with grace. We need to teach students that coming up short does not mean end of the world, but the beginning of a new journey, we should proudly show case examples of how competition betters the character of a student and how it motivates people to achieve greatness. Finally, we need to expunge the computer garbage that has seeped into our education system, and poisoned the dreams of our children” (Debank 3).
Students need 21st Century skills taught in the classroom, to prepare them to be competent adults (Caleb, Mazanai & Collen, 2014). Authentic assessments will help this become a reality. These assessments imitate skills students will need. They learn to demonstrate learning outside of a paper test to create a project or presentation (Boss, 2011). The chance to use knowledge and not rely on memorization gives students the opportunity to delve deeper and put their knowledge to practical use.
Students have drilled the concept of presenting what the teacher wants in order to receive that number grade that they want, instead of presenting their way on the topic in a creative and personalized perspective; original to just that individual. Lastly, adolescent dependency on technology is driving the youth away from exploring the creativeness embedded into our daily lives, and instead, they look down and focus on their screens right in front of them. It is time to address the creativity crisis taking over our future leaders. It is time for creativity to merge back into our lives and be recognized as a vital key to success. It is time to make a
What is the most effective way to teach? Can students really learn and fully understand the material teachers convey to them on a day to day basis? According to a middle school mathematics teacher, his methods of teaching the traditional way was not as effective and producing a long-term impact as he would have liked. The article "Never Say Anything a Kid Can Say!" enriches us to the possibility of applying slight gradual modifications to our teaching methods and how we could find ways to utilize that information in the search for more effective teaching methods to encourage students to explain their thinking and become more deeply involved in the classroom discussions, thus developing their questioning skills (Reinhart, 2000).
These schools aren’t the only solution to this problem they also provide classes for children and teens nowadays, they have web programs , counseling , textbooks that break concepts down and allow them to be easier for them to further comprehend. Finally this is why schooling is younger ages, middle school, and high school plays a major part in a child’s life as an adult and how they function. As American’s we need to understand and get the point across to kids that you need your education. Not being able to know how to read or write will get you nowhere in life. This Is why teaching and education is very important to me.
To succeed because more creative ideas would be shot down when being pitched by one person. However, when collaborating and refining creative ideas they can be used to help lead the country towards greater success. Schools are beginning to understand that not everyone learns the same way also by accepting that fact that not all students learn the same way and are beginning to apply new technology. By applying these newer technologies in the classroom less students will feel uninterested in the topics at hand and will begin to work in a more cooperative environment. Students will feel more intrigued and will not cause the class to stop to help them with their problems.
By being a positive role model I hope I can guide my students in the right direction. I feel there is more to teaching than simply standing in front of a classroom and writing on the chalkboard. There should also be more than just teaching the curriculum specified. Teaching should be a combination of curriculum and aspects of daily life and how to deal with it. Children are exposed to many bad influences at a very young age.
The music department students have different intellectual habits which made them create a different app than the science students to improve their musical skills. This is proven by Davidson “It was a hybrid of old and new thinking. If that isn’t a metaphor for attention in the digital age, I don’t know what is.” (Davidson 53) Intellectual habits are a metaphor for attention that this is the best way to teach students nowadays. To permit every individual to bring out their intellectual habits in technology and create a new learning system. However, this might be a
In the real world we have to work with one another whether we like it or not, and why not start in a writing class, and apply real world situations early on? In the article, "Applying Multiple Intelligences in the Classroom" it states , "Teachers can encourage the growth of interpersonal intelligence by designing lessons that include group activities, seminars, and dialogues. "(Lunenburg and Lunenburg) On the contrary, people will oppose to this method because, there is always a person within a group that does not put the effort that they need to be putting, but we need to think about the realistic world again. The "slacker kid" will only cause himself harm. The person that completes the work is the one that benefits from these type of experiences, by becoming more responsible.
