When college and university professors were asked what skill, above all else, is most important for success in post-secondary and career settings they said the ability to do research.
Teachers make the mistake of thinking that content or technology use training are important, but university staff said “elementary and high school teachers should be teaching kids how to ask questions and how to judge what information is relevant to answering questions and what isn’t.
“This is stupid”, “Why do I have to do this?”, “Whatever, I don’t want to do this.”, “Ok, fine, I’ll just write down whatever to get this over with”.
Not really the sound of students engaging or putting an effort into their work. It sounds like a classroom where the teacher isn’t putting any effort into making learning engaging and fun for his students. (Do you think this is true?)
Why do we come to school?
To learn. (10 years ago, it was to listen to a teacher, read a textbook, and answer a million questions – still happens in many classrooms)
When you are verbally negative about the learning tasks in the classroom, you have a negative impact on the teacher and your peers. Your classmates begin to shut down with you, causing frustration for the teacher – who now struggles to figure out how to help you or make you interested in learning.
“Clumps” – information shoved together without an underlying logic or explanation. Some are just shoving information together with no thinking and using “stuff” to support their opinions that has nothing to do with your opinion statement.
“Shapes” – arguments that use the right form but without substance. Some mimic critical thinking by borrowing the opinion of another author, focusing on a small issue as if it represents the wider issue, or only looking at surface issues.
