Now I am monitoring the students taking the second monthly exam, and I am observing them again!  Watching them and writing these words.  A girl, with long, straight, central-parted hair, is gently touching her upper lips while pondering the questions.  Another girl, who has a nickname “baby,” looks serene while working on the papers.  Still, another girl, with her elbow rested on the desk, is writing on the exam paper earnestly.  This is a history exam, which is not very difficult, I guess.  Even I can work out the answers to some questions myself.  How do you know the exam is easy?  Some boys’ heads have rested on the desk for quite a while.  I guess they must be exhausted, after a day’s exam.  Luckily, the weekend is coming up, and there is no courses on this Saturday!  Good for students, and also myself.

Looking at the students’ faces, I wonder how heavy burden the study has brought to them, with their life loaded with so many exams and classes.  With such a tight schedule, how could they have time to browse the abundant books in the library?  How would they have time to breathe for a while, to expose themselves to another world unfolded by books, I mean, no textbooks.  “Muss es sein?” (Must it be so?) said so by Beethoven in his late life.  I hope the answer is not “Es muss sein!” (It must be so).

  • 其實我們也都是這種體制下的產物,一定有學生曾期待能夠遇到什麼樣的老師使他們的學習既快樂又有效率;也有老師曾想打破傳統的教學模式,帶領學生進入到不同的學習方式。但是結果呢...應該是令人失望的,太多影響的因素存在著,光這麼多年來的教育環境而言,怎麼改變呢?這環境包括了人事物,既然扯到了"人",都是相當棘手的,不是不能變,而是"難"變!

  • 所以我就覺得工作比當學生好, 因為多了很大的自主權及自主空間.
