School books VS real experiences

School books VS real experiences

ย Each child is different and unique, each child has different needs and interests, different level of skills, different experiences and different life circumstances. What works for one might not work for another. What works for one today, might not work tomorrow.

๐Ÿ’ก What if I told you that you need to read a book about thermodynamics (pretend you don't know what that is, just like me!) And, just because you have absolutely zero interest in it and you don't understand it (because your brain just doesn't care, because you don't even find it useful, it's just a waste of time) I tell you that unfortunately you need to stay in the classroom an extra year to catch up.

โžก๏ธNow llet'spretend you start thinking that you're "stupid" and get frustrated because everyone else seems to get it but you. ๐˜๐จ๐ฎ ๐๐ž๐œ๐ข๐๐ž ๐ญ๐จ ๐ ๐ข๐ฏ๐ž ๐ฎ๐ฉ. You might start messing, feel useless and maybe even take the wrong path in life.

๐Ÿ”Now let's go back to the book. Instead of "making you read that boring book", I'll bring a newspaper to the classroom. We'll read the latest news: someone has created SQUARE SHAPED DROPLETS! what!? Is that even possible? You get curious and decide to investigate more.

๐Ÿ’ง You mix water with oil, add soap, blow with a straw, create hypothesis, play with the light, you're discovering so many exciting things! You decide to find a book that explains more about this. The title of that book is: THERMODYNAMICS.

๐Ÿฅผ Years later, ๐ฒ๐จ๐ฎ ๐›๐ž๐œ๐จ๐ฆ๐ž ๐š ๐ฌ๐œ๐ข๐ž๐ง๐ญ๐ข๐ฌ๐ญ

โŒ›It's not about the results, it's about the individual process.
โญEvery child deserves a chance to shine
