The Stumbling Blocks of Learning

"The technique of teaching is the actual manner that a teacher performs his work and the student submits his output. The strategy used by an ideal teacher is composed of the method of teaching he is following, the tools of teaching he is using and other important devices to make learning understandable, enjoyable and fun."

Let’s begin by sharing with you the famous lines or inspirational quotes of different authors worldwide. Peruse and fathom the content to give us further a moral of each poem! 

I have come to believe that a great teacher is a great artist and that they are as few as there are any other great artists. Teaching might even be the greatest of the arts since the medium is the human mind and spirit.
John Steinbeck

We must view young people not as empty bottles to be filled, but as candles to be lit.
Robert H. Shaffer

Be a wonderful role model because you will be the window through which many children will see their future
Thomas Mckinnon

Tell me and I will forget,
Show me and I will learn,
Involve me and I will understand
Teton Lakota (Indian saying)


When you cease to make a contribution you begin to die.
Eleanor Roosevelt

The highest reward for a person's toil is not what they get for it, but what they become by it.
John Ruskin

The best way to cheer yourself up is to cheer everybody else up
Mark Twain

It’s cool to be in school. Isn’t it? The teacher and students must pay attention and high regard to teaching and learning. The technique of teaching is the actual manner that a teacher performs his work and the student submits his output. The technique of an ideal teacher involves the method of teaching he is following, the tools of teaching he is using and other important devices to make learning understandable, retainable, enjoyable and fun. They said that education is a luxury. It’s a luxury because you spend a lot of money to find a good school if you want quality of education, and purchase a great number of books to supplement your learning needs. 

Most of us are in favor of luxurious life, aren’t we? Most of us don’t want to go to school for some other reasons. And these reasons were extracted from the students’ experiences with their teachers and points of view of the school in general. Here are some 30 reasons why the students don’t like to go to school:
  1. Students don’t like their teachers because they are strict;
  2. Students don’t like the subjects because the teachers handling the subjects are not the subject specialists;
  3. Students don’t like their teachers because they don’t know how to discuss the subject matters well, and they lack the mastery of the subject;
  4. Students don’t like their teachers because they always ask them to copy the topics on the board every time they get inside the classrooms;

   18. Students don’t like their teachers because some of them always blame them for going to school late and unprepared;
   19. Students don’t like their teachers because they feel that they are not a part of the school anymore;

There are other self-rationalized thoughts, aside from 30 reasons, to take into account on the part of teenagers; perhaps, most of the teenagers today want another hangout for them to enjoy, aside from going to school to listen to the discussion of the teachers. In general, the students would like to feel an extra-curricular activity to make them perk up at all times. Let’s find out by setting out or commencing with learning, but boring activities in school. And the general question is … 

Are you getting bored of going to school? Some students said that school is boring. Are you one of them? On the contrary, here are some good reasons why you have to stay in school. 

School is the place where you can meet with your best pal whom you can share with your secrets and problems, including your daily routines. Everybody is very certain about the purpose of going to school. One of the reasons is that to learn in any subject, because it aids in growing up to become fully mature and responsible person -- possessed with the knowledge and skills. 

Those strenuous reflection-exercises or activities which actually make every student discover of who you are and what you want to be in the future. School is where you can get the best education, and can learn lots of information about the world, life and society. You can also get to learn new skills and to have fun. School is not only putting up a school building, but it's shaping up one’s character, the students’ and teachers’ characters, and all the things that you scheme to do inside and outside of the school premises. 

 When you are in school, it seems that everybody has gone to a party, especially having a recess, lunch break or during leisure time because you’re with your “friends or peers.” During the school playtime, you can cheer your heart out as your school team competes with a rival school. 

It’s stunning, isn’t it? How can we catch sight of the tiny cells that are made up our body through the use of microscope? Imagine, what else can a science teach you? Imposing on your savvy over the tough mathematics problem, but once you have solved it, you know you’re getting a lot sharper and sharper every day. 

School competitions, intramurals and other activities are vital to the students’ progress and the students can’t formally experience anywhere else, but inside the learning institution. Dancing, singing, acting, drawing and even body-contorting, these are all the activities in English subject that each student ought to learn by heart thru oral and written communications. 

Remember, there is a thrill every time there are upcoming or ongoing activities on the campus. The unforgotten best memories can linger on … and the students will have experienced by the time they study formally in school. 

So, are you now having a second thought of considering or taking into account such a heavy boredom while you are in school? The answer lies in you. It’s up to you how to react with this question. Please bear in mind, just experience the fun of going to school and learn the academic and non-academic subjects. As the saying goes, “It is cool to be in school!” This saying is just a great reminder to all of the students out there. 

Merci beaucoup! It’s my notion that I want to share with.
