Many people started to treat the teachers just as service providers are required to implementation services according to their will (variable anyway, and unstable). Zdjęło is the profession nimbus missions, tasks crucial for the realization of the public interest. it fell conviction about the special vocation of the profession. the sense of meaning, purpose action has been strong devaluation. Accepted. for years teachers lived in the belief that society is admittedly sometimes complain about the work of teachers, but generally their respects. teachers feel accepted – noticed and appreciated, and most of all – important. they had the feeling that someone is with them that matters. in recent years, the attitude of students ( less and less interested in science ±, niedoceniających commitment), politicians who treat education as irrelevant-dressing and parents (more often undermine the efforts of teachers) made it clear that in the hierarchy of social prestige of the teaching profession has fallen a few rungs. CHAMPIONSHIP – there is no denying the majority of teachers chose the profession because of the subject of curiosity, what they were doing. Just didactic work gave space for intensive development in your favorite area: history, physics or literature. Let render the hobby. In recent years, more and more teachers but was turned racehorse trainer, collector performance, executor of instructions. They did not have time to explore the world of knowledge, the implementation of cognitive curiosity. The pursuit of the championship was not conducive to the promotion model – that was just a bureaucratic, taking the joy of realizing passion for collecting papers. SAFETY – teacher’s salary has never been too high, but the work in this profession gave a sense of social security. Regular salary, various additives, a very small risk of dismissal. You could feel the solid ground under their feet. In recent years, however, inflation has increased to the extent that this sense of security has been undermined. Currently teacher’s salary is now simply too low in relation to the market situation. They increased well as various administrative pressures, which hit a sense of stability. AUTONOMY. The teaching profession was for years one of the most autonomous. You could actually lead lessons in any way, as long as the stick to the core curriculum. Methods, tools, ways of communication with the student – allow for independence. Generally, no one specifically did not check how a teacher conducts lessons. It is not interested in the board of trustees. Executive class inspections were rare. Free time was also quite a lot. In recent years this has changed. There have been more paperwork. The number of control. Teacher was dressed in a rigid frame. Time for action was limited free. And worse, there was the belief that limiting the independence of supervision will be more and more. So what to do? If we want good education, we must take care of the sense of stability teachers. We need to restore their autonomy in action and give space to a real improvement. We need to start to notice more and appreciate their work inserted commitment. So that they can rediscover the meaning of actions. To rebuild ETHOS. All this should be accompanied by profound structural change, allowing to create a sensible selection mechanisms to the profession. They need new career path. It is vital to provide real support professional. You can not just go back to the past. Because the world around simply changed. The question is whether we are ready for these changes.

Send (); }); / ** / It would seem that in the area of ​​education should not operate myths and simplification – after all, these are processes that should lead to personal development, deepen their knowledge and skills. Nothing could be further from the truth. In education, there are many myths and simplifications, which very often cause that learning becomes ineffective or even counterproductive. It should reach the scientific literature and research to make sure that the chosen methods and forms of education actually bring the desired effect. The education market PWN Scientific Publishing House published a book by Jeffrey D. Holmes, a professor at Ithaca College in New York, Fri. “Education and learning. 16 biggest myths “. Holmes looked at sixteen widely shared beliefs about knowledge acquisition. To clearly decide on their scientific value, he gathered an impressive amount of data from the scientific literature and made them careful and critical analysis. Expounding the firmly established common knowledge, the author also shows how to keep criticism of the scientific and pseudo-scientific reports. Books and articles on educational myths should follow, even if the research is conducted in other countries in the world. In education, there is a fairly quick and free spreading of different theories and methods that are supposed to improve the effectiveness of education and quality of learning. Many of these are commercial – get the message that the use of certain products brings fantastic results, and obtain evidence of expression of many people who have had the kind of success thanks to them. We can believe it, but you better make sure it’s actually the items and methods can bring us the benefit of education. Holmes book may seem controversial to many people. Firstly, it concerns the sphere of personal beliefs, and in the case of teachers and educators, including professional experience. Perhaps ignores other important myths operating in this area. Education is an area that is subject to dynamic and endless change, therefore discussing myths requires consideration of the most recent studies (Holmes should take into account more recent research). Nevertheless, it is a position that can stimulate and revive the discussion on the quality of education. “Selecting the myths about learning and education is interesting, but you must be aware, however, that there are many more, it is impossible to study all of them in one volume (…)” – he wrote in the introductory word prof. Eve Czerniawska from the Department of Psychology at the University of Warsaw. “Reading the book may be for many people uneasy, because the author confronts the firmly established common knowledge, hot, reinforced by the experience of the reader. It should, however, take the trouble to look at the results of research and reflection on their own convictions, especially if someone has been teaching others. ” “I encourage everyone – teachers, education workers, journalists, students, parents etc. – to the people demanded from repeating certain opinions about education appeals to specific indications, and reviewed available research.” – calls Holmes.

Send (); }); / ** / An affirmative answer seems obvious. They are convinced that teachers and parents. Teachers prefer to teach smaller classes, because they have more time for individual students, parents choose private schools for the children, because they generally have smaller classes. It is common to think that the best number of students per class is about 16, as a small group workshop. However, studies do not confirm our conviction. Professor John Hattie believes that reducing class size itself has very little effect on student performance – 0.21. In the “scale” Hattiego interventions that have to pay at least 0.4. For instance, the transmission by the teacher student feedback – 0.73; teacher training – 0.62. I refer to the book by John Hattiego – Visible student learning for teachers. What this is about? This article will cite yet another study done recently in the USA. But before I do I will try to speculate yourself. Why we are wrong in our opinion? In my opinion, this is due to the fact that the teacher is much more convenient to teach small classes, have more time for individual students, fewer tests to see fewer problems. He has a chance to keep track of students’ progress and to adapt their teaching them. It also has more time in the classroom, if only because it deals with a smaller number of students. It’s all logical and also guided the parents sending their children to school. My teaching experience also confirms this. Although, when I taught a small class, it also saw a negative impact on my students, he relied on the fact that it was a small selection of what you could do the work together and students have few opportunities to learn from each other.
