An Expectation Of A Teacher.

An Expectation Of A Teacher.
The lecture began with a follow up from the previous lecture. Sanjay Modi Sir asked, ”Does anybody remember what we discussed in the previous lecture? Please raise your hands for the same.”
Nobody responded, nor raised any hands.

To make it easy for us, he asked another question, “What do you mean by Neomercantalism?” 
None of us responded, yet pretty obvious, Ahmad was having an answer but Sir wanted to listen from somebody who never spoke in the class before.

I could sense a feeling of disappointment in his eyes as he spoke, “There is no use of these lectures unless and until you contribute in the class.”

“Be mentally present in the class. Be Spontaneous.”, He continued.
He mentioned that it does not matter whether we say right answer or not what matters is that we must speak.
That one moment I realized how important it is for a teacher to know about whether his teachings are instilled in the minds of his students or not.

Well, even though I did not remember the topics discussed in the previous lecture, yet I could feel the significance of being aware about what we have studied so far, or are studying.
To make it more clear for us, he gave us a situation that if a student is asked a question, which of the following responses, is the best:
a) Student stay quiet.
b) He speaking anything and fumble.
c) Admit that he has not listened properly in the previous lecture, hence he is not aware about the answer.
Answer to the above was undoubtedly c), that moment I realized the significance of participating in the class actively.
To put it in a nutshell,

“Repeat the knowledge that you have learned, once or twice, thereon it will remain in your mind forever.”
“Learn. Relearn. Share.”
I hereby, thank Mr. Sanjay Modi Sir for taking a follow up of knowledge that we are getting from him.
Keep Learning :-)
Keep Sharing :-)
Thanks & Regards,
