Brain plays a very important role for each person. Brain operates activities of human. Therefore, we want to educate people well and effectively. The first thing should will be brain based research so as to impact directly on the most important organ of the body.
Brain based research which is the basic for Primary English Language Teaching (PELT), helps educate better and more efficient for children. Primary age children are considered the foundation of the next stages of age. This is the age of the first period in school. This age is extremely important role. Children start becoming the really students, that means they start obtaining the larger knowledge.
In addition, we are aware of the brain and the psychology of the children, this contributes to help us to know how to teach children with an amount of knowledge appropriately to their age and it depends on the accessibility of each child. And then we can identify the strengths and weaknesses of each child.
Especially, children learn the surrounding world quite fast. Therefore, teachers should exploit this strength by taking examples from the real world and we should teach from simple to complex. Primary school age children are quite sensitive, emotional, innocent and pure. The actions of adults will affect to children. Thus, adults should be as the models in all activities and speech. Teachers also should not pressure on students. If you do, children’ feeble brain will be injured and it may occur unintended actions.
Teachers not only improve children’ knowledge, but also should mix with the entertainment by fun games because entertainment satisfies curiosity of children. It prepares for labor, imagination, energy and talent after. For example, telling story with pictures helps children understand simply, improves thinking ability and practises reading, listening and speaking skills.
In conclusion, brain based research has very important implication for education in general and for PELT in particular. Since then, teacher can give appropriate methods to teach primary school age students who are the future generation of our country.
This is my opinion about application of brain based research with PELT. Thank you for your reading and I hope that you will receive me your comments.
