“I want my kids to have an international outlook!”
As parents, we all want our children to be better than us.
Hope that children become dragons and daughters become phoenixes,
it has never changed for thousands of years.
Only the form is different.
As a mother and educator at the same time,
I also often reflect on how I treat my children, What are the expectations for students?
Think about it, from a learning point of view,I hope they can “learn for themselves”,
But it sounds like it should be, but it’s hard at the same time?
When did we start #learningfor yourself?
Think about it, it seems that after leaving the society,
Only when you need to work will you know what you are missing, so that they want to study;
More importantly, after becoming a parent, For the sake of children, want to be better!
“If you change the position, the whole head will be different. 』
My first tutoring job after college was teaching high school math, instead of my good English,
Strange to say, when I was a student taking exams, I always had blind spots,
Obviously the same question type has been written million times,
When I write homework, I can’t understand it when I take the test.
When the students will encounter the problem of hitting the wall,
But once you become a “teacher”, no matter how you look at the questions, they are all the same type!
“The purpose is different, the angle of looking at things is different”
When learning is a kind of coercion, everything is boring…
It’s not interesting, I feel like I can’t remember how to learn,
Children and adults are the same…
Often when we encounter computer or engineering-related problems, we will say,
“I’m from the liberal arts, you can’t understand the data you tell me~”
If we want to listen to “vernacular Chinese”, it’s not really because we don’t understand,
But I just can’t seem to understand…
『For the sake of Oppa, even the grandma will say rub the waves hey yo! 』
#Motivation is everything!
So what we do is to make the children have the motivation to learn,
If there is motivation, there will be action, and if there is action, there will be results,
The flowers that bloom and the fruits that bear in this way will last a long time.
Every time I take a class with these children, I feel that it is a witness of every scene,
Witness that under the guidance and patience of parents,
How we spend our Saturday nights together,
As a mother, I know that Saturday nights have to be in class,
How many difficulties need to be eliminated,
But seeing the adults and children who are not absent, Lara’s heart is full of joy,
Sometimes, even with unavoidable gatherings,
The kids also put on headphones outside and listen to what we’re saying,
I can’t help but want to open the microphone to express my thoughts;
From the beginning only a few people spoke,
Gradually, almost everyone rushed to express their opinions,
Maybe people who are not used to it will think that the students in our class talk more than the teachers.
But it is such a lively atmosphere, and there is an atmosphere of learning together~
Because of this, the originally shy child also began to show a smile,
Express yourself in the classroom in your own way
I didn’t know where to find international news from the beginning,
Now a person may have more than one news to talk about,
From light-hearted tidbits to serious climate change issues,
From national culture, to discussion of democratic politics
“It turns out that there is such a way of class!”
A parent told me about their child’s feedback
Yes, this kind of teaching belongs to the literacy education of the 108 syllabus,
But more importantly, in this way, our children, On the road ahead, walk with more confidence!
