Something should be thought deeply after watching “ Taare Zameen Par” _ Nguyen Luong

This film main_image-34479made a strong impression on me and I cried a lot, cried for a child’s feeling, Ishaan, when he was forced to study far from his home and cried for his happiness when he found himself. Nikumbh, a wonderful teacher made me think a lot about how to teach students well like him. The first thing that I can see is enthusiasm and patience of a teacher. In term of teaching knowledge for children, a teacher not only go to the class and convey all knowledge in that lesson but also find out the way to make students catch the knowledge easily. Teacher is a person who helps children thinks that the school is a useful playground rather than the hell. Each of students has their own difficulties in learning and it is teacher who finds out those difficulties to change teaching methods suitably. Children cannot live and study in a stressful environment, when working with them, the teacher should be calm down, talk softly with them to understand what they are thinking. Understanding children, the teacher can help them stand out.

The second thing is that the teacher must fan the flame of children’s creativity and not extinguish it. Children learn language through imitation; however, the teacher cannot see them as a machine. In this film, a student asked in the art lesson: “teacher, what will we draw? There is nothing on the table” and the teacher answered “this table is too small to hold your wonderful imagination world”. You can easily see that children were trained as obey robots because the teacher did not put anything on the table, they did not draw. Normally, teachers ask students to follow their requests; if students cannot respond, they will be thrown out of the race. In this development stage, the creative ability of children is unlimited; therefore, teachers have to create an environment that students can be free to create even it can be wrong and then teachers will help them correct mistakes. Teachers shouldn’t force students so much because they will get stress on their learning.

In short, the teacher wants to teach language effectively, he has to have patience, enthusiasm and fan the flame of children’s creativity.

Thanks for your attention.

  1. First, thank you for your post; I feel this is an interesting writing. I agree with you that the film was great impression on the viewers and it also reflects the state of our education today. Through your post the more I feel deeply about the role of the teacher in teaching. A dedicated and enthusiasm teacher always tries her/ his best even students are stupid, but he did not give up, but he’s always on the side to help and motivate students. Second, I see your opinion is nice “The second thing is that the teacher must fan the flame of children’s creativity and not extinguish it.” Teachers are always people-oriented and motivate students although in any circumstances so that they can know that life is still meaningful if they try.
    In general, your post is pretty good, but it still has some small grammatical errors. For example, in this sentence “a teacher not only go to the class and convey all knowledge in that lesson but also find out the way to make students catch the knowledge easily.” has some mistake about grammar.

  2. Hi Luong. I have same idea with you. Firstly, a teacher should be enthusiastic patient when teaching. Secondly, teacher’s duty is creating learning enviroment in which develop student’s creation.
    In addition, I want to mention mission of teacher in teaching language for children. As you can see, for children, learning the first language is difficult, therefore learning foreign language is many times difficult than learning the first language. What should a teacher do to make student feel not stressful?
    In this film, the teacher used a lot of methods to help Ishaan read and write. He relized that Ishaan is a special child who love painting, love science. Hence, the teacher him alphabets by write them on sand, He used a mirror to help Ishaan write alphabets from left to right. From this example, teacher of English should be more flexible to find out types of student’s intelligences and then find suitable methods to teach English for them.
    That’s all my ideas. Thank you so much!
