“Simplicity is the Ultimate Sophistication”
Simplicity in life can be beautiful because it stops us from overthinking and overspending. A Simple life puts everything in order and harmony, which is essential for effective teaching.
One significant gain when you decide to simplify your life is the ease in recognizing the best path. The beauty of life as a whole grows through simple things. Similarly, teaching flows better when you have a simple and straightforward purpose. Simple solutions always take less time to finish than complex ones. In our classrooms, a teacher’s sincerity and humility should shine through in everything he says and does. Today’s scenario discusses new ideas in the education environment and focuses more on content. Indeed, some modifications are required to promote continuous growth, and it is best to keep it simple, so our classroom should be simple without distractions.
Exercise on Simplicity
Garden visit to show the difference between Tap root and Fibrous root.
Students will be shown different types of plants in the garden; they will observe the pattern on the surface of the leaves and will be able to predict the types of roots.
Impact on Students: Better understanding (Learning by doing)
Teachers who foster positive relationships with their students create a classroom environment conducive to learning. Moreover, a student who feels a strong personal connection with his teachers receives more guidance and praise. When the teacher-student relationship is vital, improvements are seen. Listen to your students what their needs are. Empathizing with your students goes a long way in building a trustworthy relationship.
