Education of children: Should learning be fun?

Post  Guest on Sun Dec 26, 2010 9:11 pm

Interesting quote I found on a Jewish website by googling "making learning fun"
In college when you are studying to be a teacher they push the idea that learning must be fun at all times.

QUESTION: What about making learning fun?

ANSWER: Teaching [children] using the Sesame Street-style destroys them, because Judaism says that unless you teach them right at the beginning to work hard, you will lose them. If you give them the impression that learning has to be fun, they will stop learning as soon as it is no longer fun. And you cannot make it all enjoyable...

I agree that there is a certain degree of fun in learning, but there comes a point when learning takes work, and if you are not ready to work, you are not going to learn. If you train children that learning has to be fun, then when you start making them work, they will ask, "What's happening here?"...

You can bribe a child who learns with fun, but do not bribe him with fun learning. Of course, learning has to be exciting ― but as a result of its content, not because you have a big bird teaching it so that they are interested in the bird who is then able to slip in a letter A.

If the child starts off being educated that learning has to be fun, then you are going to be imposing on him when you tell him to learn when it is not fun... You are not going to make solving a math problem or doing a chemical formula fun, either. It is intensive and mind-breaking, and you have to work at it.

This just begs the question:

Should liturgy be fun? I choose FUN!

No, it does not beg that question.

Bu we are not surprised; say, isn't your avatar a snapshot of an "Oktoberfest Mess"? you attended?
