Jovial was telling me and my wife the other day that finally he succeeded in doing well in his exam of the subject of Moral, last term he managed to get 60 odd, this term around, he shot all the way up to 90.
I was happy for him for he managed to keep to his words that he could fare well in his exam with just little "supervision" from us and on the hindsight,I was not too pleased with it, for the reasons below................
When asked how did he do it,he said all he did was simply just to memorize the particular subject,like 背到滚瓜滥熟,then I was thinking to myself,that should not be it man........I did not tell him there and then about my feeling,well just a little of it though,as not to dampen him.
Second of all,personally I don't think the subject of "Moral" should be made into "exam'able", we might just lose the real essence of moral,if the students only read and memorize it,without really understanding it,,,haiz.
Now,I am thinking,why so many students hate the subject of "History" because they are told to memorize all those names, all those dates, all those place,without really grasping why certain incidents happened, the cause and the action of it........
I hope we are not churning out graduates who are only good in memorizing and not analyzing.............I am trying my best to cultivate the "enjoyment' of study to my boys and to instill that learning should be fun and not boring, Lord help me.
Have a good weekend folks and God Bless.
P/S : Son..enjoy it
