Schools need to understand that successful learning does not require student/teacher bombardment. Classroom instructors complain that the status quo overwhelm feeling makes the teaching profession unattractive as institutions should consider teachers’ welfare. In other words, activities like meetings, projects, assessments, etc should be minimal.
Although investigations show this implementation intends for the learner’s interest. However, they might sometimes clutter thereby deviating from the intended goal. If there is a need for any educational adjustment, the organizers should involve classroom instructors who hold a significant role in student learning.
When more priority is given to clarity, focus, and achieving the desired goal than effort, the teaching profession will be more attractive. Most teachers spend at least three(3) hours daily with their students and understand each assimilation level thereby introducing the best methodology that provides in-depth topic understanding.
Tony suggests that when introducing a curricular or program to a school, there are three questions to consider to attain student understanding;
* What is understanding?
* Which aspect of the program(curricular) should the student understand better?
* How to identify the best methodology that helps students get maximum understanding?
When you identify these important areas, it will save effort and time in the classroom. Similarly, by prioritizing key areas in learning, teachers will get less overwhelmed and can clear the clutter that may hinder attaining the desired success.
