How do fin de siècle texts use anthropomorphism and/or zoomorphism to comment on issues of race and empire?
himself” (2, My Pedagogic Creed). Dewey believed that education was a process of discovery where students would study what they were interested in at their own pace as they were gradually becoming more aware of where their interests laid. Dewey’s education system is perhaps most well known for how it stresses the importance of “hands on” experience in the learning process. Dewey believed that people learned best by going out and interactively “doing.” Out were the days where teachers would lecture on facts and information, forcing their ideas onto the students. Dewey criticized teachers and the current education system for protecting students too closely and not letting them go out into the real world so they could blossom saying, “the situation approaches learning to swim without going too near the water” (The Relation of Theory to Practice, Dewey). For Dewey, a teacher’s job was more about being a facilitator to the students, helping them discover what they were interested in and then creating ways for them to actively ‘do’ these things. Ultimately for Dewey, learning grounded in experience combined with subject matter that was interesting and applicable to the student would lead to a greater society. I think that both good and bad come from John Dewey’s ideas for education. First off, I like Dewey’s movement away from teaching styles that stressed only memorization and the regurgitation of facts. Hands-on experience is a proven way for students to learn. It is much more enjoyable for the student and seems to be directly applicable to their future. I also agree with Dewey’s view that students should learn about something that interests them. Stuffing facts that kids do not have any desire to learn down their throats is not beneficial to anyone. When students can actually connect with the material they are learning, they are more likely to put in the time and effort that is necessary to fully develop their knowledge and understanding of a subject. Lastly, I believe that it’s a good idea to focus your studies in one particular area as it is very difficult to master a multitude of subjects. I think it’s better to be extremely proficient in one subject than to have an average amount of knowledge in multiple subjects. This way, everyone can pick an area of study that interests them and then, as a community, each person can bring their one unique area of expertise to the table and the rest of the people that aren’t as fluent in that subject can benefit. With that being said, I think the prec>GET ANSWER
