  • Students’ passions are the routes and filters through which partnering teachers create individualized learning.
  • Some students are kinesthetic learners, requiring a hands-on approach to learning. Some students learn visually, excelling when they can read or see photographs of the material. Others, learn better through listening, learning best when they can hear and talk through a problem.

  • A key aspect of “partnering” education is discovering and utilizing students’ interests. Today’s teachers need to help students discover, understand, and develop their passions.
    PARTNERING + PASSIONS
  • LEARN ABOUT STUDENTS’ INTEREST AND PASSIONS
    While partnering, it is important to know students’ passions in detail.
    Passion provides a source of energy that inspires learners to make an effort and determines how long they will be willing to endure an activity, how hard they will pursue it, and how much they learn.
  • “Passion” means a person’s central focus, what the learner cares about most, or what inspires him or her emotionally.
    A student need not become passionate about learning English in order to succeed in English class. Rather, the student needs connect English learning to his passionate interests.
    Today’s students expect individualized treatment.
    .
    WHY LEARN ABOUT STUDENTS’ PASSIONS?
  • Educators must discover the passions of individual students—the things that truly interest them—and use them as the drivers of student engagement and achievement.
    By accessing students’ passions, we can create individual learning that will stick in students’ minds, be valuable in their lives, and make them want to know more.
    PASSIONS DRIVE STUDENT ENGAGEMENT
  • Educators can learn from their students by helping them find their passions and by organizing class activities around the theme of self-expression.
    To discover students’ passions, educators can use various methods--personalized tasks, idea journals, speaking circles, or interactive questionnaires.
    INDIVIDUALIZE INTRUCTION
  • To build respect and tolerance for individuality.
    To inspire more variety in our lessons.
    To allow us to create meaningful guiding questions.
    To encourage us to get and give constant feedback.
    HOW CAN WE USE PASSIONS?
  • Adjusting to new roles takes time, so patience is important at the beginning of the process.
    PARTNERING=NEW ROLES FOR TEACHERS & STUDENTS
    • New teacher and student roles lead to improved mutual respect.
    • Students become more active and equal participants in the learning process.

    MORE IDEAS

    They also reveal positive emotions such as excitement, enthusiasm, interest, and optimism during learning.
