We Have The Ways of Adults,and The Hearts of Children.
In my SAT prep textbook, there was a passage about the founder of the Montessori education system, Maria Montessori. Her theory about childhood psychology interested me allot so I did some research about it. I thought that her theory about most constructive times of the day, diversity,and environment t affecting learning was profound. I know for myself that I'm not productive at all around mess. For example, if I need to do my homework in my room, it needs to at least be tidy or I'll just be to distracted to do anything. I'm at my best concentration and focus at morning,night, and in library's, bookstores or coffeehouses. Also, I discovered that the reason I prefer my college classes over my high school ones that in my college classes I'm in a more diverse environment than in my high school ones. When I tap into my "preferences" I can get allot done without feeling super stressed. When I don't, it takes allot of tea to get through the day. ;) The point is: Since we're all grown-up children anyway, Montessori principles could be applied in high schools, colleges and workplaces to increase productivity. Even though it would take some money to apply those changes, it would eventually pay off. Less stressed, more motivated students and workers. Less sick days because stress increases your rate of sickness. More success stories. If you want to learn more about Maria Montessori the link is Here. Last but not least ,a terrific Kings of Convenience song.:)
Much thanks for reading. Many many hugs and warm feelings.
