Tao-Yuan Primary School’s Humanistic Approach to Teaching
Traditional education in Taiwan has the teacher lecturing, and students listening. It emphasizes on examination results encouraging students to learn through memorization rather than understanding, losing the true value and meaning of education. Yi-Wen Yang, 6th Grade teacher at Taitung County Yanping Township Tao-Yuan Primary School, challenges herself to try a different approach to educate her students. Every child is a unique learner; Yi-Wen introduces humanistic education to her class, allowing each student to develop at their own pace, providing an equal opportunity for growth.
