Interest is the best teacher?
Now the educational philosophy, with special emphasis on the role of interest to the best teacher. If we can arouse the students’ interest in the teaching process, then the students active learning, the learning process is a kind of relaxed and happy, the result is that students can easily and firmly grasp the knowledge; at the same time, the teacher will reduce the difficulty of teaching organization, relaxed happy teaching duties, complete the mission of education.
However, is that true? The answer is not necessarily.
First of all, interest is a very unstable instinct, which is particularly prominent in young people. Interest comes, do a little work or do something; interest for a while, then say nothing to move. So if you do anything to be based on a person ‘s interest, it is not a matter of reliability.
If we observe the students who learn, self disciplined, or some poor performance in school, you will find a phenomenon, that is, their behavior is often based only on their natural feelings or interests, not based on reason or discipline. If they are hungry, no matter what time and place, he must eat something; they will not care about any person or thing around, suddenly shouted or laughed, and even often appear “kissing door” such things. If you look for a similar group of people, the result is roughly the same. The so-called low quality people, their words and deeds is not only on the basis of self interest or habit, without regard to morality norms. Why these people, the reason is probably in its growth process, parents do not know how to educate their children, too many children in accordance with their own interest in self learning, self growth, the result is to create a lack of quality in all aspects of the individual, many lack of quality and the formation of the lack of quality of the community and the community.
Aside from the talent, if a person is to be in a certain industry or in the field, it is not only a matter of great uncertainty. So the ballet choreographer Barron Xian said: “I don’t think ballet dancer, I want to dance ballet people.” The implication is that the pressure of life is the best teacher.
Now look Mencius that hardships for the worst words, really feel there was another meaning: the day will fall so big people, we must first if the mind, workers of their bones, their body skin hunger, depletion of their body, it is OK Fu chaos, so as to stimulate the interest, has not. People hang off, and then be able to change; trapped in the heart, the balance of consideration, and to make; features in color, hair at the sound, then yu. In no out no learned men and advisors, foreign aggression from enemy states, wakizuz. And then know that he was born in misery, and died in peace. What is the natural interest in happiness and happiness in the country?
A scholar once told his students said such a sentence: interest is the best teacher, this is at best only in early childhood stage children listen to. For a shoulder heavy responsibilities for college students, how can only by his interest in a muddle along every day? Too wide interest, too shallow reading, can only bring people to the harvest tasted, skimming over the surface. These gains will not give you a strong support for your future career!
I think, if you read to hear that in the early days of the school to hear the teachings, certainly not so much good time to waste, life is also not so many of the loss and confusion.
