Have you ever been tired of getting the same kind of teacher? The one who doesn’t understand you? The one who you don’t understand? Teachers are some of the most important people in our lives, so why not have the right to choose them?
Students who are in their second year of high school should be able to choose their teachers. They are capable of doing so, but why aren’t they allowed? Students should have this choice because of many reasons. One of those reasons is that they know exactly what their needs are and have their own thinking skills that only a certain teacher can fulfil. The other reason to have this right is because students are more likely to listen to a teacher they enjoy and look up to. Moreover, teachers themselves have an advantage as it will be rewarding them in some cases. Finally, choosing the same teacher more than once will improve the student-teacher relationship.
To begin with, students have their own thinking skills and a different way of learning. They are more likely to share their weakness, strengths and feelings with the teachers only when they like the teachers personality. When students go to a teacher, it is obvious that the students’ like their teaching styles. For example, if a teacher demonstrates with pictures while teaching, students who like to get educated by pictures are likely to go to him/her. Some students learn by pictures while for others, it is very distracting.
"Young people are a school's customers, and they see lots of different teaching styles over the course of a school career,” commissioner for England, Dr Maggie Atkinson said.
Students have their own pace at which they learn. If a teacher works with students at a slow pace with step by step instructions, students who take longer to understand will join that classroom. They might not understand when a fast paced teacher directs the subject. Therefore, students can choose a teacher that best fits them in their learning. They can also choose a teacher that helps them achieve their goals.
“I have seen lots of students fall asleep during class. Creating interest by others is different from being interested. It is mostly because pupils do not like the teacher who is teaching in class.” - A professor of more than ten years says.
As the professor implied, when students get a chance to choose their own teachers, they won't have to stay and get bored and could be learning at all times. Students will also be learning in a way what seems to be an easier way for them. They will learn more within the same amount of time when teachers and students think in a similar way. This is possible only when there is a matching in interests. In other words, it is easier for the teacher to teach and as well easier to learn for the students.
“Learners will learn better if they are interested in when they get their chosen person as a teacher. They will build interest in the subject. If they don't like the teacher, they might get frustrated and might not be...
