Dilemmas in Teaching

CIMG0022

 

1.

 

Adult’s

versions of

reality imposed on

children’s minds in seemingly

harmless ways, invalidating

their uncompleted

realities

as a

way to appeal

to administrators, families,

funding sources with concrete

products that appeal to <them>…

 

2.

 

Adults

nurturing children’s

ideas and their

ability to create whole

concepts based on their own realities,

validating their own powers

of creation, developing

their thought

processes

in not

so quantifiable ways

which result in insightful,

and powerfully honest, telling results,

though less quantifiable, less testable, less

assessable, less attractive to administrators,

families, budget resources, because

the results don’t

validate <their>

thinking.

 

Conclusion:

 

Can

one approach

be balanced with

the other?  Or would

they cancel each other out?

The caveat is that the human

mind seeks the latter, rebels against former

often in creative ways or through

rebellion.  The former is autocratic;

the later is democratic

with appearances of

seeming more

anarchic.
