The Definition of Objects in the Approach to Education
School: The school is not only a foundation to educate the child but a professional system created to prepare the child for the modern world. School is where talents are learned and knowledge is developed. However, knowledge is not obtained to know, but to implement into our daily lives. Knowledge that does not fit into the modern world is abstract, which makes it the hardest to learn and is the least lasting. To impose unnecessary knowledge to a 14-15-year-old child changes that child’s character and dampens his/her talents. Knowledge that is implemented into their daily lives is an essential need for the child.
Teacher: A teacher is not only a class instructor but is an appointed adult that works to prepare the child for the world with their experiences. A teacher’s job is not only to raise good citizens but good people. A good person is one that is free to live his/her emotions, is disciplined, is respectful towards the rules, and has the collective mental capacity to live in harmony with everything and everyone.
The teacher focuses on understanding the child’s deficiencies and works to solve his/her problems. The teacher offers teacher evaluation’s from time to time, especially at the end of exams, and asks the students to answer honestly. Thus, with the feedback received, if needed, the teacher puts forth new arrangements.
Student: A student is someone who has goals, generates ideas, is curious, and asks questions. An important anecdote: NASA Award in the Neurosciences award winner Vemon Benjamin was asked, “Why you, out of over 3000 scientists in your field in the United States?” he replied by saying “They found my research pioneering.” When my friends’ mothers asked them what they learned at school, my mother would ask me if I asked good questions at school. My mom taught me the importance of asking questions. There is no failure for the student, there is only learning.
The method used in education: The method where the child is constantly active is valid. As follows; Every student comes to class the prepared for what he/she will see the next day. The teacher provides a list of research sources in addition to the text book. The teacher open up the topics for discussion and encourages the students to comment. Thinking questions like “Who? What? Where? How? Why? When?” are encouraged. In the end, the teacher provides or helps make a general summary.
Homework is very little to none. Instead, research topics are given. The student does his/her research and takes notes on the topic. When the set deadline is up, or when the student feels ready, he/she presents his/her research. Following, the teacher opens up the topic for discussion. Students ask different questions and discuss the issue. The teacher moderates and judges the conversation.
Success in education and grading: Success is knowing the value of the moment you are in and cherishing it. It is measured according to the previous state of the student, not the situation of others. The student is in competition with himself, not others. So, the purpose of grading is for the student to compare his/her previous state with the next.
Parent: In terms of education, the parent is a mother/father role that works together with the school to prepare a healthy family environment for the child’s mental, physical, emotional development, and does not give the opportunity for family incompetence so the child is not negatively affected. The parent gains the child’s trust and develops strategies in order to do so. If a student is not comfortable in his/her home, if he/she can not share his/her affection with parents in all matters, if he/she is not sure that he/she is loved and valued; penalties, repression, prohibitions will not benefit but on the contrary, things will get worse.
