As I continue to educate myself with the Saskatchewan curriculum, I came across a quote from an education philosopher by the name of Maxine Greene. Greene states that “Part of teaching is helping people create themselves” and I couldn’t agree more. The profession of teaching is complicated and although the curriculum is our guideline, I think Greene expresses that self-discover is the most important aspect of school. As I previously stated in my last post, self-discovery in the most beneficial learning you can come by and Greene backs up my previous beliefs. Although self-discovery takes time, it’s one disadvantage falls under how little time we have as teachers. It’s very hard to hit every outcome/indicator that the curriculum states, but if we follow the idealization of Green it would make completion even more difficult. Moreover, the positives to this approach give the student a deeper connection to not only the content but to their own identity. Teachers help advance the next generation of humanity, and self-discovery is only the beginning to a better future.
