Idek who’s hat this was but I like it haha
Good morning all :)
That time when Raven actually said what most of us want to say to a teacher who picks you for the answer when you clearly don’t know it, for usually no other reason than to embarrass you and make you look stupid. One of the main things I hate and always will hate about school.
I’m sure this has been explained in the 500k+ notes this post has but I would just like to give you a different perspective and defend the teacher here for a little bit bc not all teachers are bad..here’s the thing: teachers call on students that don’t raise their hand for a number of reasons that I’ll try to keep brief by making it a list:
1. Sometimes when they know the student isn’t paying attention, yes, it is to embarrass them bc they want them to actually learn something instead of talking to their friends or being on their phone or whatever.
2. Another reason might be that they know the student knows the answer but is just shy and won’t speak up unless called on, so they do this to help break them out of their shell a little and maybe it’ll boost their self-esteem when they get the answer right.
3. Finally, teachers call on students that they know don’t know the answer bc they want to challenge them to think harder about the problem and hopefully get them to understand the material better.
To end, I’d like to go back to the initial purpose of this post cause don’t get me wrong, I know there are teachers who suck and are just bitter and cynical old people that seem to have some sort of vendetta against children/teenagers/whatever. In my experience though, and the fact that I’m older and have friends that became teachers who couldn’t be happier to be able to be not just educators, but motivators, mentors, a shoulder to cry on if need be, or whatever else children/teenagers might need in the difficult journey to adulthood.
On the other hand, they also want to help their students to learn and be excited about the subject they are teaching though, maybe bc it’s something they themselves are passionate about, or maybe they just feel the need to do something good for society, and what better way than to educate the younger generation. Still though, even if they do become smarter and more critical thinkers, it’s obviously kinda useless if they don’t utilize all the knowledge and intelligence they’ve acquired throughout their time in school. Therefore, a lot of teachers think it’s also important that they help their students become more driven, more outspoken people. Therefore, when they see a student not participating it might make them feel like they are failing that student (in a sense, not necessarily in terms of grades) and so they just want to do something that would hopefully help them in more ways than just learning a particular subject.
Why did YouTube just show me an ad in Spanish??
