There’s a certain logic in that kind of thinking. Because we often think that turning up the volume, saying something loud enough, will enable everyone will hear us. But do students in a large classroom really understand every word a teacher is saying? I think, often, they do not.
“The district set up model classrooms so teachers could observe brain-friendly lesson styles and strategies like using an “adult voice,” which is supportive and nurturing, rather than a “parent voice,” which is loud and directive and can cause resistance.”
If you analyze the word “education,” you will find that our English word derives from the past participle of the Latin word educare, similar to educere (or, “to lead out,” which is the source of our word “educe.”). In other words, one of the purposes of education is to bring forth from a student that which is innately in them: their talent and passion in life.
Teachers face new challenges every day. Recently I read an article discussing the trials that teachers face with the constant advancement of new technologies, curriculum reforms and ever-changing make-up of languages within the classroom.
