So that this is understood better, we are going to illustrate it with an example: the study of Declaration d and the Human rights. Normally, the books of Social Sciences contain a subject in which one of the questions is ” what are the human rights ” and another one ” which are the human rights “. It is more, this is even a subject del that the opponents to all the bodies of police of Spain are examined. But one reads the subject and seems cold. It gives the sensation to be reading a list of things that ” one assumes that they are importantes” , but it is not known very well why. Then, in knowing why it is the key. What would happen if instead of to read the subject, the students had to speak by email with some descendant of holocausto Nazi or that he had participated in the fight against the Apartheid in South Africa? To motivate requires the effort of all. It seems easier to say the one than to do it.
For that reason it is that when the parents who go to my courses or who read my articles ask ” to me; Jenny, and why the then professors make it so complicated? ” I always answer the same to them: because to change of method of education in any system of education he is something very complicated. But he is that in addition, he is something so the professors do not count on much aid. I am convinced that the key to motivate the pupils is in the collaboration between the educative equipment and the family. For that reason, whenever work with the families I inform to them into the importance that becoming familiar not only with the educative system of its country has, but also with other aspects, like the educative style of its professor or professor, with the material of study of its son, the form in which is examined or the beliefs obstacles that he or she can have towards the task of studying. It is that to motivate your son you must also study a pile of things. You are motivated for it?
