In addition of being real and relevant, science should also be challenging so as to push students to their best potential thus they will think it is boring once they mastered a topic. Teachers can also motivate learners to love Science by arranging for them to work in groups and getting them involve. In this way, they are encouraged to talk about their own understandings. As a teacher, you need to make participating fun by giving each student a task to do such as decorating the classroom, erasing the blackboard, etc. Giving rewards to your students creates a sense of accomplishment and encourage them to work with a goal in mind.
Generally, a negative attitude towards a given subject leads to lack of interest and when subjects are to be selected, as in senior secondary schools, it leads to avoiding the subject or course. Furthermore, a positive attitude towards science according to Simpson and Oliver (1990) leads to a positive commitment to science that influences lifelong interest and learning of science. This is the reason why major science education reform efforts in Africa have emphasized the improvement of students’ attitudes towards science
Teaching is more than delivering facts to students, it’s about developing a child to their full potential. I don’t want my students to memorize material for a test, then soon forget it, like I did growing up. This is not beneficial in the long run, students should know a math equation because they understand how to formulate it, not because they were told what the equation was. Because of this, I want to adopt a more constructivism approach to teaching math. I plan to be creative when it comes to math, and find ways where my students can construct their own learning and develop their own understanding behind the concepts of mathematics.
Also our teachers are there to teach math, science, and English well none of this stuff will ever help them if they don 't learn moral values. It is a teacher 's job t prepare us for the future so this is part of that. If they let kids get away without teaching it they will think they have power over the teacher and this will start to cause major problems in class. Here are the main things that should and need to be taught. Trust, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship without this you can 't do much.
The results agree with Tan and Soong (2006) that the crucial problem lies in the language used to communicate science concepts and that many students are put off by so-called scientific “jargon” and the seemingly complex sentence constructions. According to them the same kind of complexities also confuses students in learning science in English, like Chinese, French and German. Many of them might not be confused by the complexity of science concepts, but by the way, they are communicated. According to Duran (1988) for a student who has never spoken a foreign language, only a little perspective information was yield by standardized aptitude and achievement tests and this test only shows little or no
It is clear that most jobs in the future will require basic understanding of math and science. Although we are talking about STEM strand advantages, we cannot neglect the fact that it also has its disadvantages. Taking the STEM strand may result to some of the students’ inability to apply the lessons in the real world. Or sometimes, they may just lack the confidence in choosing the said course. Lack of confidence builds uncertainty and failure, leading to more problems.
Study History helps us to understand the civilization and development of human. Study economy teaches us how to survival in the society, and for science, it tells us the nature of the universe and also ourselves. In the past, most of us learn science only through school curriculums or professional studies, but now, it’s time to step forward. We encourage students to learn outside classroom and discover by themselves. Therefore, ‘informal science education’ (Robelen, 2011) is being more and more important nowadays.
Physics as a science the basis is one of the teaching materials in the school that play a role important in the development of science and technology. This matter because the teaching of physics in school aims to prepare studenuts to be able to cope with the ever-evolving life through practice acting on the basis of logical, rational, critical, efficient, and effective thinking. But the fact that happens, generally less interested students to learn physics because one of the subjects considered difficult by students. This matter in line with the opinion of Masrarah Dwi Yanti, that there are 3 (three) subjects in high school that became a scourge for some students, namely mathematics, physics, and physics. Students argue that physics lessons are difficult to understand because they found many mathematical equations in physics lessons, so that physics is identified with numbers and
This is because during lesson time there is very less idea exchanging between the teacher and students since the teachers are very dependent on the textbooks and are afraid to bring students outside the box. Now you may blame the teacher for failing Thailand 's education but is it really the teachers ' fault. Few have known that a teacher 's jobs is not only to teach student but they have to files many many document which Amatyakul stated these actions as "unnecessary burdens". Every year, teachers have to file document for assessments which contains many criteria. By having to do the documents make the teachers lose focus on teaching and have to spend times working on the documents rather than fully gave in to teaching.
6. Science education must include a greater amount of present-day scientific discoveries, because it is of limited interest for students to study the “history of science” or to study old concepts and theories, which have been replaced by a better understanding by real-world scientists. Often, education departments do not teach modern science because it is thought to be too difficult to understand. But replacing modern science with “history of science” does not fulfil the needs of students, and this is another reason why students do not find science to be interesting to
