哭有何用


由於第二屆中學文憑試考期逼近,於是每次見到讀中六的補習學生,不是「鵝」,便是罵,結果有一個忽然崩潰,在栗面前失聲痛哭。栗問她哭甚麼,她說自己已盡力,但就是不懂得計那些數,栗不應責怪她,叫她不要去考試。



先描述一下學生的努力程度:她上月拿了八年數學卷一的舊試題,栗著她只做甲部的短、中題目,結果數週下來,她做了三年,30題不夠。至於英文,她說要每天拿三個生字作句子給栗修改,結果第一天交來的句子,每句只有四至五個英文字,然後作了一天就不了了之。



栗明白不應拿自己跟學生比,但這樣便叫盡了力?那學生的力氣還真是少得可憐。另外,栗不覺得對著數學卷冷笑或痛哭會有何幫助。何不將有限的時間,切切實實的拿來背公式?背全了,考試時依舊不懂,那就真的沒奈何。



會得想的學生,就知道只要捱過這一關,以後都不用跟討厭的數學打交道。如果連兩個月的時間都不能忍,到時落得不合格收場,可是會痛苦半生的。十七、八歲的人不算小了,自己好好的想一想吧。

  1. 懂得哭仲有得救;但若是冷笑的話……!

    唉,我還在氣她的不長進。

  2. She's a victim of a primitive and decrepit system...
    [The Teacher回覆02/05/2013 22:07:01]Yes we do. But the current mechanism is inadequate because it's only meant to skimp off the cream of the crop and stigmatize the rest. I know it's hard to change because most teachers and principals were raised in that system.

    Yes, I agree not everyone should go to U because it only cheapens the degree.
    [版主回覆02/05/2013 21:57:08]But then, we need some kind of mechanism to classify the students. Honestly, I don't believe that everyone should go to university and get a degree.
    [The Teacher回覆02/05/2013 09:06:23]For kids that age, the taste of real-life brutality should not come from school work, but from interpersonal relationships, or other stuff. This is just not healthy.
    [版主回覆02/05/2013 08:16:43]To me, this exam is a taste of real-life brutality. Crying and complaining just don't help.

  3. I agree with you. It seems to me that the students these days are not as hard working as the ones in the past. Some give up easily and seldom try their best. Some lack motivation, while some are just lazy. Anyway, I learn a theory on self motivation from a famous professor. I seldom force my students to do things. Instead, I praise the hard working ones in front of the class and give a sense of success to the weaker ones by asking them to answer some easy questions. In this way, intrinsic motivation can be triggered. If I force them to do ABCDE, motivation will only come extrinsically and the effectiveness is limited. Besides, I am trying to find some videos on Youtube showing them that it is important and not difficult to learn English. Anyway, it is never an easy task.
