I was wondering what you all thought of learning designs pertaining to English language teaching? What are the ways in which you design your lessons to achieve better learning in your students?Continue
Alan Watts at his best. Important point for us all, personally and about our school systems that promote "ends".
Alan Watts is a truly wonderful man to listen to.
Isn't there a question of causation here? Watts seems to be saying that the school system is the root of the problem, but did the school system give us the crazy world of quota-driven work or did the crazy world of quota-driven work give us the school system?
I don't think he was addressing the issue of causation in terms of what caused school. He was just describing things as they are.
If you read Watts, even briefly, you'll see that as a Buddhist he views the world as driven by guilt, our actions never of the now but always towards a future "right" state. He wasn't into school reform but about self reform.
I find in so many teachers the same sentiment - that they feel somewhere within, are driven in their teaching that "something is not right and I got to fix it". Working and teaching towards tomorrow and not as part of today. Watts would ask us to drop that and just do what we can here and now.
One of my fav. Alan Watts speeches / blurbs.
