20 Ways To Help Students Think For Themselves

The student-teacher connection is nurtured with motivation, understanding, and attention; where the teacher motivates and the student understands the instruction by the teacher. This back and forth process sketches the future of learning and both are able to achieve the goals they have set for themselves.

But a lot of people ask how the learning process can be effective and how the events that occur during the learning period in school, college, or otherwise can turn out to be fruitful for the teacher and student respectively.

Here is our list of circumstances in which students learn effectively. It includes the events that help students gear up the pace to finish and to revisit the tasks. However, there are conditions and environment required which helps students their set goals.

When do the learning models, lesson designs, and curriculum mapping sneak in to be the most important tools of learning? How important it is for them to contemplate, develop a critical approach towards understanding matters?

Here is a list of circumstances where teachers should give an open arena to students so they learn and unlearn various ways of learning and think for themselves.

  1. Let them watch their guesses and estimates play out
  2. Let them form theories, and immediately test and review those theories based on surveillance
  3. Give them the right cooperation with the right ‘mind’ at the accurate time
  4. Allow them to read with a choice–without rules or outward pressure
  5. Let them be creative with the content or dynamic learning tools–no goals or stimulating or rules (other than basic common sense, safety, etc.)
  6. Let them see the parts of the whole and the whole of the parts
  7. Help them understand the interdependence between content and themselves
  8. Make sure they understand their motivations
  9. Help them become useful for others, and learn to value themselves and their own worth in the process
  10. Motivate them to write about things that are difficult, personal, emotional, meaningful, or seemingly trite
  11. Help them meditate
  12. Guide them to start something they don’t know–this will guarantee that they think for themselves, as it provides each student with their own launching pad.
  13. Allow them to steer ‘unfiltered’ sources of information
  14. Motivate them to start separating basic epistemology–the differences between information, knowledge, and wisdom, for example
  15. Allow them to implement their understanding on their own
  16. Help them believe they can, and make the choice to not be denied
  17. Allow them to practice, practice, practice, and give them consistent feedback
