Week 2: Tyler Rationale

Thinking about my own schooling back round, I can remember times when teachers used the traditionalist perspective approach in there classrooms.  Teachers would have our seats set up in rows while listening to them read off power point slides. During that time we were given point form definitions and facts that we were to remember and be able to reiterate on the test next week. The traditionalist approach can hinder a students creativity as it has a stereotype of trying to shape all students into the same mold rather then developing outside the box learners and passionate adults.  Trying to shape students can limit there future potential as it can negatively affect there ways of exploring new options and ways of learning.

  1. I think it can also limit what a student thinks he or she can do in and out of the classroom. I agree I think it pushes students back while giving students a set structure instead of encouraging creativity. Like you said, students can’t all be shaped in the same ‘mold’ each one is unique and carries different qualities that they have to offer to educational institutions.
    Do you think schools are trying to steer away or change from this approach?
