1-size-fits-all method
Why not free students to learn just right for each?
Our OPPONENT
A SIMPLE 1-SIZE-FITS-ALL METHOD:
which CANNOT work
because STUDENTS are ALL DIFFERENT.
Easy to understand, because you already know what school is
ONE teacher, ONE mouth
ONE lesson at a time
The teacher MUST MOVE to subsequent lessons
This does NOT mean ALL students
learned the previous lessons
Because students are EACH UNIQUE
Some are AHEAD and BORED
Some are BEHIND getting DISCOURAGED; this gets WORSE
Many come to believe "I'm not good at math."
This poor learning identity can remain for decades
The teacher's job is literally impossible
It is IMPOSSIBLE to teach a student any better
who has ALREADY learned the lesson.
It simply cannot be done.
It is IMPOSSIBLE to teach a student any better
who is UNREADY for the lesson.
It just frustrates the student.
The problem
The problem is NOT teachers,
teaching to students who have already learned or are unready to learn the lesson
The problem is NOT students
Parents don't even go to school
As you can see, the
SCHOOL SYSTEM is SIMPLE
, a
SIMPLE
1-SIZE-FITS-ALL METHOD
which DOES NOT work
because students are ALL DIFFERENT.
The one possible
type of
solution?
CHANGE
the method
