Education - Statement

***** EDUCATION PERSPECTIVE As a f*****culty member, I would try to incorporate learning-centered college concepts in***** my classroom as much ***** possible and in particularly in any manner that facilitated student motivation directly. Toward ***** end, I ***** encourage students, including first semester freshmen, to consider every elective course as an opportunity to prepare them for their future. In that regard, I would counsel students ***** consider the relevance of ***** ***** with respect to anticipated career goals; in the case of ***** ***** little idea of the ultimate direction ***** their goals, I ***** suggest that they view every academic course as an opportunity ***** consider potential areas of related interest. ***** principle, I would caution against selecting courses without at least some very general idea of what relevance or potential relevance it may have with respect to future professional or advanced educational goals.

In my humble *****, the near-exclusive focus ***** trad*****ional education on textbook-based learning allows a substantial number of students with considerable intellectual potential to fall ***** the proverbial cracks of the modern educational system. In many cases, students fail to reach ***** academic potential by virtue ***** their ***** relative ability to learn through different modes of instruction and elements of practical experience.
