In this modern and fast-moving age, students gain confidence in expressing themselves and also get the strength to ask for help. At this age, some students also face problems in finding their own voice.
Then how can the teachers help the students stay focused on their education with so many distractions and noise? How can they encourage the students in finding their own voices amidst all? So, this is when silence plays an important role to pay proper attention in the classroom.
Silence in the Classroom
Practicing silence in a classroom can bring value to any school. It offers a pattern where you look after a student’s internal discipline and free-thinking. Also, it encourages the idea of growth and care among the students.
But Why It is Important? Let Us See!
Bringing silence in a classroom not only gives focus to the students but also helps them gain power in other psychological aspects.
Deeper and Broader Learning:
Silence in a classroom is the time when students understand a subject or bring out the meaning of the lesson taught. This helps them to think deeply and broadly. Besides thinking, it also allows them to remember the lesson thoroughly and express their own ideas without any distractions.
Learning at Own Speed:
If silence is practiced in the classroom, then students can learn at their own pace. They will get enough time to write down or process their own thought on that particular subject or matter. Questions can be big or small, but practicing silence can support future studies or work.
Encourages Discipline and Focus:
Thinking deeply about any subject or the lesson taught in class can make a student self-centered and focused on the given work. Besides, it also gives the students the opportunity to develop full concentration.
Shows Bonding and Unity:
In any relationship – at school, work or home, silence is the greatest tool to create a bond between two individuals. Working or sharing thoughts together can instill deep understanding and provide unity. Also, silence gives students the power to listen carefully to others’ opinions. In this way, one can eliminate fear and bring unity within the class.
‘Silence is one of the greatest gifts one can have’. By bringing silence in the classroom teachers can listen carefully to the fears, joy and problems faced by the students and guide them with proper care.
