The Teacher’s Antidote

The right type of a learning environment is essential for teachers and students alike.
Having the right attitude and the right space is important for a successful intellectual journey. Because all these components are so important, there has been an ongoing debate between traditional and active forms of learning. Some research findings show that one form of learning is superior to the other. However, experiments in the classroom have proven that both forms of learning have benefits and disadvantages. In the Teacher’s Antidote, the question of how to learn is answered by the teacher. The teacher becomes the great scientist that has gained the trust of students by trying the right things. Based on experience, the teacher-scientist finds the right antidote for their classroom. The right antidote does not have to be error free: it is based on trial and error. The results that it yields are the right degree of challenges for students to overcome and a great learning experience.
