“Helping Successful Students to Become Even More Successful” - Professor M.S.Rao
“More important than the curriculum is the question of the methods of teaching and the spirit in which the teaching is given.” - Bertrand Russell
In every classroom, educators often find three levels of students – below average, average, and above average students in terms of their levels of intelligence and understanding the essence. The role of educators must be to ensure that the knowledge reach out to all levels of students equally. It is easier said than done. Therefore, educators must deliver the key ideas and insights three times in the classroom so that all levels of students can understand the essence effectively. When educators tell the key concepts first time, the above average students understand the message. When they tell second time, the average students understand the message. When they tell third time, the below average students understand the message.
The role of educators is to elevate below average students as average students, average students as above average students, and above average students as extraordinary students. Precisely, educators must help successful students become even more successful to provide a meaning to their profession and make a qualitative difference in the lives of students.
“There are two kinds of teachers: the kind that fill you with so much quail shot that you can't move, and the kind that just gives you a little prod behind and you jump to the skies.” ― Robert Frost
