Education is based on the teacher-student relationship. You will read, hear, know. I once learned from a teacher that they teach principles of relationship building and its meaning in psychology, not in various types of teacher studies. “We don’t have to be able to know it, know it.” The word I give you this argument has fallen. I do not want to evaluate it, but I do not have permission to reduce education to a simple didactic process. I say – You listen; I write-You rewrite; I judge – You accept, I ask – You do; I plan – You wait; I organize – you are happy.
Unwillingly, every adult who plays an important role in a child’s life influences his personality. James Baldwin said that children are not good at listening to adults but are excellent at imitating them. This is just proof that that teaching is a shared journey that the teacher shares with his students. The journey ceases to be exciting when there is nothing to explore, the surroundings cease to be interesting and the time we take together “for survival.” Children really take this journey together seriously and want to see the behavior of us adults – their teachers and parents exactly in the way we ask them to behave. The young teacher once confessed that he was shouting at children not to shout at each other. At one point he saw the paradox of this situation. So if we ask children not to raise their voices, let us not raise them. When we want our students to work more, they must see that we are more involved; if we want them to perform their tasks in time, they must see that we also fulfill our obligations on time.
Oh, I am close to Socrates’ claim that the educator is like a midwife, and upbringing is about bringing out what is good in the student without putting himself in the role of being wiser. Nobody will take away from the teacher years of studies, graduated universities, diploma, professional promotion of received awards and titles. This is very important and necessary. However, what does this mean for a child of six, seven or even fifteen? Will the number of teacher certificates make students more willing to study? Will choosing the right publishing house and textbook make them willing to come to school and go to class? That is why students want to know that what is happening in the school walls is a journey together. How to change that? Perhaps it is worth developing new habits. It’s just like taking a new path to work go instead of driving a car; change page, layout, existing and secure order. Sometimes you may feel confused and lost.
That is why the old adage says that we teach the way we were taught and bring up the way we were brought up. So let’s make an effort to learn some habits and create new ones. In planning this joint trip, try to include students with whom you will discuss the program, criteria, expectations but also possible projects to be completed, ideas for tasks, repetitions. Ask your students what helps them to acquire knowledge and what hinders them, how they like to learn, which methods they find interesting. Take interest in the topic that your students are especially waiting for. What interests them, who wants to get involved more, and what does a minimum of activity mean. Tell them your needs and expectations, explain them “humanly” why they are important to you.
Talk to them about principles and values that are relevant to your entire school community. After introducing the new topic to your children, ask what they already know about it and what they would like to learn. Create a common mind map, brainstorm, discuss. It may turn out that even those least interested will add something to the common ideas and get involved in the implementation of the issue. This is a great opportunity to learn about students’ interests and their level of knowledge. Create a common mind map, brainstorm, discuss.
