For one of my articles, I would like to know from you teachers what complications did you face during your lecturing and class? And students, what kind of problems did you face while being in class?
What were "The complications I face during my lecturing classes?"
I have never liked being lectured to so I have always sought to put things out to cause the audience to question me in seeking what answers do I have and how I obtained them, but today's students are not taught to inquire, only listen and accept or reject, making it difficult for me to know if I was answering the questions they sought.
As a student during the 1950s and early 60s what was "the problems I faced"?
The teachers and lecturers more often than not didn't have answers to the question I would ask that did not lead to another question. One example in math was when being taught every number added to a negative of equal value equals zero (0) I stated "in that case the only whole number is zero" and the reply was "zero is not a number but a placement digit."Tthe question it brought, "How can something being whole be added to something else that is whole and together they not remain what they were" was never answered. That is especially so when Zero is added, subtracted, multiplied or divided by itself still remains zero.
I now have a hub "Existence Explained Via Numbers" that explains that and more. By their not being able to satisfy my inquiry I found the answer for myself is how that benefited me, so I thank him for that.
Thank you very much for your informative reply. I am now working on a new article related to this subject. Therefore, I asked this question and you helped a lot! I also faced many problems as a student related to the questioning part. Sometimes, you ask your teacher something but she/he are not able to answer you properly which may cause confusion. As a teacher now, I try my best to learn everything about my subject and be completely prepared for my class.
Best of luck!
When a teacher doesn't have an answer they feel comfortable with they shoud say something like "I don't have the answer so whey don't WE [you and the questioner] seek an answer". We are always students, both the teacher and students, so one should not feel belittled by acknowledging the truth that they are still learning.

My apologies, but I think the high school and college teacher needs to avoid such broad sweeping questions (very few students nowadays - and I see them in my classes all the time - are ready for such questions). I think you have to start small demonstrating and teaching individual skills and...

As an American, do you still believe in living ''The American dream''????Though I am not an American, I have always felt driven by the slogan 'living the american dream'. But in recent years with all that is happening in the states, I can feel that passion die away slowly. Is it only me?

A news report stated that a majority of 4th and 8th grade students are not proficient in math skills. Our government is working to fund schools but we see little results. What do you think, read my blog. I am interested in your comments.
