It is surprising to hear nectar of knowledge

time that children somewhere do not want to study. whether

we that, for example, bees refused to collect honey can imagine

A? Likely, we cannot, probably something to it stimulates them.

as we stimulate with

A the children? Especially for seniors we developed very interesting method. It was succeeded to realize it thanks to efforts of parental committee of school.

In classes near an educational board were placed by stands at which the large print wrote a question: “Why it is better to tear off a piece of knowledge more?“

All classes monthly participate in decorating of this question. Think out a plot, draw or compose. And then go to neighbors - are curious and that at them. All who updated the stand are awarded. And it is very simple, but it is effective: the director personally on change comes into a class, asks attendees as they like new option, and shakes hands with creators, pats shoulder and speaks: “It is thought fine up!“ . For children it is very powerful award.

Of course, the purpose of these actions - to attract and to constantly keep attention of pupils on the designated question. Our consciousness works according to quite simple scheme: there is a question - there will be an answer. Here in these independent answers - all salt. They as you understand, just do not have the price!

Should admit to

that over this question we reflected long enough, touched a set of options. To draw attention, its formulation had to be unusual, even, say, shocking. It is heavy to study, of course, it is the real work. And here “to tear off a piece of knowledge“ - at all it does not seem it difficult occupation. Besides, in the word “tear off“ - active action, but not passive expectation is concluded that someone will come and will present you with something. And the word “piece“ - is very easily visualized in consciousness, as a metaphor it can be quite simply postponed for any objects.

Children draw also a crow from the famous fable at which not some there small piece of cheese in a beak, and the whole cheese head behind the back, and the fisherman who has a huge hook on a rod, and sandwich of the extraordinary sizes which is dragged from school by the pupil on the cart. What there were only no drawings. For example, children go on a holiday with balloons, and only the one who with a portfolio, pulls the Moon on a string. Here so, in absolutely simple and even fantastic images they convince themselves of advantage of knowledge. And that is important: without stresses and humiliation, without feeling of helplessness and, of course, without any violence from people around!

When they make out a question, by all means discuss a drawing subject among themselves. During this discussion there are interesting events. On the one hand, the imagination of children strains, and they give rise motivations of quite exotic type. For example, a large number of knowledge - will allow to develop ekstrasensorny abilities. And on the other hand, they exchange them among themselves, there are real “repollinations“. And, the motives are more improbable, the more they blow the mind of children and easier take root: “to depart on other planet and to base there a new civilization - without big piece of knowledge of it it will not be possible to make in any way“.

Fantasy? Yes. But we will remember with what pleasure all of us read it. During discussions it “soars in air“ as if pollen of trees during blossoming.“ Repollinations“ motivations are so multiple that at once you understand: to introduce them from the outside, and, above all - most to think up all this, it would not be possible for anything.

also absolutely serious motives Meet, however, for example:

to find

it is A lot of very expressive: “to shine with mind“, “the engine to the car not a hindrance“.

It is curious, as parents do not stand aside, ask the teenagers: what did you manage to think up this time? Interest of adults, their attention and recognition are very important for children of any age.

In corridors of school stands with headings freeze up: “You can count on us!“. On them placed the “smiling“ portraits of seniors and their statements taken from their compositions: “I will be learned - I will become...“ “I will learn - I will make...“ .

All this pursues

the purpose to show: motivations to getting of knowledge can be much and each person can have something special. The priority, of course, is given to such motivations which are connected with achievement of some purpose. Thanks to are those who just want to avoid punishment or condemnation, remain in minority. And every year them becomes less and less.

the Only thing that at school is welcomed by nobody, this aspiration to superiority over others. Earlier and teachers provoked such desires at children, allocating someone: you are an asterisk, you the best, the first etc. There is no it now. Aspiration to superiority over someone - very artful piece: today it knowledge, and can be tomorrow, anything. For realization of this motive the most various resources can be used: appearance, physical force, money, communications, position and even authority. Let`s remember “hazing“ in army! All abuse it, forgetting, of course, about sources of this unpleasant phenomenon.

Dictatorship of the proletariat, Stalinism, a Hitlerism - all this from there. And all defects of our today`s life the reason have this warped one-sided motivation of people. A reverse side of aspiration to superiority - someone to humiliate envy and desire, “to lower“. About it and a line from a joke known for all:“ I do not need a cow, it is necessary for me that she died at my neighbor“.

Creativity of children generates so many remarkable motives that in this competitive spirit there is no need. Well, when there is no nothing else, then, of course, “and cancer on an absence of fish - fish“ and when is - then what for?

Life - a big labyrinth. To find in it the way without worthy guides of motives very difficult. Around there are so much deadlocks and dark back streets... You remember, and “great heroes“ needed “Ariadna`s thread“.

Children at school as bees in a beehive, constantly transfer each other important information. They also are surprised how them, such children`s, creativity generates so many remarkable motives? Think out! Learn to think out, but do not wait when someone “lays them rails and will tell: now you are tram - a route No. 6“. The last, probably, most important.

Observing all this from outside, simply, you are surprised: where and why children do not want to study? There was yet no such case that bees refused to collect the nectar from flowers! What to it stimulates them?

At my place and the two more children, and I do not regret that the question “why it is better to tear off a piece of knowledge more?“ hangs also in their rooms. They already know on it many answers.

Motives is what creates our desires. To stimulate desires much more effectively than any coercion!
