In a lecture of 60 minutes, the teacher doesn’t need to talk for 60 minutes. It puts the students off to sleep.
Instead, the teacher, can lay down a context for the first 20 minutes, make the students work on a problem for the next 20 minutes, ask the students to share their experience for the next 10 minutes and then just reflect on the lessons learned in the last 5 minutes.
The class becomes alive. Students learn by doing, not listening.
Let’s not put the students off to sleep. Let’s not give them grades for memorizing stuff. Let’s empower them to solve problems.
P.S. – For the last 5 minutes, the students and the teacher can just share jokes, or meditate. 😀
