My Educational Philosophy

How many of us felt like this student when we went to high school?
 
Chemical equations ... it took me ages to pick it up as I found it quite confusing ... but having been taught by a teacher one way I tend to relate to it in the same way but in my own thinking ... in an exam I would probably get it wrong. You see when we are told to swot for a test we have to go swot in our book all the stuff the teachers way ... we go home and we try to learn that ... but as soon as it hits our eyes it goes in our brain and it goes out the other way ... and so when we come to write it down and we think ... and we write it down all our way ... because of course it still means the same thing ... there is no difference ... but to the teacher there is a distinct difference between our way and the teachers way ... and the teachers way is the right way ... thats what I find so hard.
