The reason why children don’t like to study, read this article to tell you the truth

Sometimes, I really envy Xiaopai for growing up in such an interesting learning environment. A few days ago, Xiaopai brought back the paper she made from school. I held it carefully and was surprised for a long time. I asked her, can it be written on? Xiaopai said, of course. After saying that, he picked up the pencil and started writing. I asked her how she did it, and she rambled on. It turns out that this is called \”waste paper recycling\”. First tear up the waste paper, put it in a basin and soak it overnight, and replace it with clean water the next day. Then pour the soaked paper and water into a \”juicer\” (Xiao Pai said she was not sure if it was a juicer, maybe a blender?) and beat it into a paper paste. Then use a gauze net to filter out the solid paper, sprinkle some petals on it, spread it flat on a board, use a dry towel to absorb the water, and then dry it slightly. The recycled paper is ready. My admiration for their teachers is like a torrential river. I had known for a long time that they were studying the \”History of Writing\” section, but I didn\’t expect that the way of learning became more realistic each time. I remember at the beginning, the teacher asked the children to try to carve characters on bones and experience the oracle bone inscriptions. I specially asked my aunt to buy the tube bones to make soup. Don’t throw them away after eating. I washed them myself and then started carving them. After reading the engravings of other students, we suddenly realized, wow, the fan bone is better to use. After Xiaopai\’s classmates experienced oracle bone inscriptions, they began to experience writing on bamboo slips. Finally it’s paper’s turn. However, paper is a common item for us, and children may not feel it deeply. The teacher actually came up with a method of \”recycling waste paper\” to let the children experience a series of changes in the text carrier… What a unique teacher. How did I learn this knowledge back then? It\’s probably just a few passages from the history textbook, memorize them, and then fill in the blank questions on the exam paper. This is called learning. It\’s a pity that I don\’t remember anything now. (The history teacher wanted to hit someone after hearing this) By coincidence, in the movie \”Teacher Hiccup\” I watched recently, I actually saw the shadow of Teacher Xiaopai. It tells the story of a woman born with a speech defect who finally became a teacher and led 14 students to counterattack in an elite school. What I am most curious about is how she inspired a poor student to change from being completely uninterested in learning to taking the initiative to learn? These 14 scumbag students all come from the slums. Their grades have always been at the bottom of the school. They are also very rebellious and often get into fights and pranks. After a home visit in a slum, Teacher Hiccup discovered that in addition to attending classes every day, they actually had to work to help their parents make ends meet. Some set up gambling stalls on the overpass and developed mental arithmetic speeds that were faster than computers. Teacher Hiccup encouraged him to learn mathematics well and go to the larger gambling market, the stock market and so on. Some help their mothers cut okra and fry okra all day long, knowing that salt must be added last, otherwise the okra will become sticky. Teacher Hiccup said, this is chemistry. Their classes are not only in classrooms, but also in playgrounds, laboratories, and squares, and they use life phenomena familiar to children to explain knowledge. Throw an egg and explain the parabola. Play a basketball and explain friction. Do a magical experiment and have your children cheer and applaud. I had no interest in learning at allTheir curiosity and desire to explore were discovered by the teacher. Those formulas and the knowledge points lying in the textbooks have become clues closely related to one\’s own life. Looking for these clues, oneself is becoming more open and flexible. This is the source of happiness for one\’s learning. Their enthusiasm for learning inspired the top students who could only attend classes in the classroom. They even asked their teachers, why can\’t we learn while playing? The same is true for Xiaopai\’s current study. When learning the construction section in the first half of the year, the teacher did not teach knowledge in the classroom, but took them to the farm and asked the children to build a pavilion. From laying the foundation, to sawing the wood, to the final construction, the children have to do it all by themselves. Finally, the pavilion was set up, and the children felt full of accomplishment and learned a lot of interdisciplinary knowledge during the experience. However, this way of learning was still questioned and ridiculed by the top teacher in the movie. In the eyes of students like us who have never been taught in this way, we may not be able to help but have a little doubt, is it really possible to teach this way? Exam-oriented education limits our imagination. In the standardized examination system and rapid and fierce competition, teachers do not have much room to play. Xiaopai’s former classmates at school all ask Xiaopai now, is it difficult for you to learn now? She came back and told me, Mom, if I go back to my previous school, I don’t think I can even keep up. It’s so difficult for them to learn. Yes, this kind of interdisciplinary education method that focuses on inspiring interests has extremely high requirements on teachers, and it seems to naturally carry the original sin – insufficient efficiency. However, test-oriented education is highly efficient, but it hurts most children’s interest in learning. Writer Hao Jingfang once said: Our studies for so many years have been \”only given keys, not locks\”. Thinking back to when we were in school, when we learned a piece of scientific knowledge, the order was generally: tell a concept, give a definition formula, become familiar with the application scenario, practice and use it repeatedly, and remember it. For example, learn about stress. The concept is \”the ratio of the pressure on an object to the force-bearing area is called pressure.\” The unit is \”N/square meter\” and the formula is P=F/S. The application scenario is to calculate the height of the atmospheric pressure mercury column, repeat the questions, and take the exam. Student inner os: What are these… This kind of learning will hardly arouse interest. Because there is no doubt in it. Without doubt, there is no curiosity, and without curiosity, there is no interest. Where does the interest come from? It\’s nothing more than a question that I want to know the answer to. Where does the problem come from? Of course it comes from daily life. I remember that when Xiaopai was building a pavilion, the teacher assigned her a homework assignment. She went home to observe the structure of the house and measure the area of ​​the living room. When Xiaopai got home and measured it with a ruler, he found that it was not long enough at all. Here comes the question, how to measure the area of ​​a living room? Some high-level parents may be able to figure it out at once. As a somewhat stupid mother, of course I can only provide information to help. I took out \”Hansheng Mathematics\” that Xiaopai and I often read, and read several books on space measurement together. Only then did I realize that the problem is actually very simple. Just measure the size of the floor tiles in the living room, and then count how many there are. Just use one floor tile to calculate the area. Later II found that learning in this way not only teaches children an area formula, but also allows them to understand that measuring area does not require a ruler. The focus is on finding suitable units of measurement based on areas of different shapes. Interest has become a beacon for her to continuously expand her knowledge interface, accompanying her to stroll leisurely in the vast ocean. I very much agree with Teacher Xiaopai’s educational philosophy, which is an education prepared for life. In fact, every child has natural curiosity and thirst for knowledge. Parents are the ones who live with their children. The little fire that protects their inner enthusiasm for learning is in every moment of life. Maybe it was a swim and I felt the existence of buoyancy; maybe it was a painting and I felt the concept of angle; maybe it was a game and I felt the interaction of forces…
