Why Students Don’t Like School

Glazed eyes and drooping heads–bored students are the bane of any teacher’s existence. That is why I read Daniel Willingham’s book with the provocative title: Why Don’t Students Like Schools? 

I found his suggestions for remembering and teaching skills especially fascinating.

STUDENTS: What do you think of Willingham’s suggestions–which of them do you think would  actually work? Why do you think student’s don’t like school?

One thought on “Why Students Don’t Like School

  1. I may not be the best example because I like school. But the times when I don't like school and just want to go home, it's mostly because I'm being forced to be in a place I don't necessarily want to be in, surrounded by people who don't want to be there either.
