Forgetting is the inability to retain and retrieve previously learned information. Scientific investigations go a long way to prove that human memory or aptitude for learning depreciates especially when one advances in age. This implies that at adolescent stage(school age), students are physically, psychologically and physiologically endowed to retain their class lessons in their memories for a long time. However, in the contemporary school system, the reverse has become the case.   The major causes of this forgetfulness from the psychology and physiology point of views can be summarized as follows. 1. Decay of memory traces: Learning creates traces in the brain and if such traces are not constantly activated, they tend to “decay” leading to forgetfulness. Likewise, if previously learnt lessons are not constantly activated revised by students the traces for such lessons can be lost temporarily or permanently in the brain. 2. Motivated forgetting: Any learning associated with unpleasant and painful… Read More »WHY STUDENTS EASILY FORGET THEIR CLASS LESSONS

Reading is an intellectual activity directed towards extraction of meaning from a written piece. It is the act of giving meaningful interpretation to printed words. The student view it as a tedious task, which must be “done” in order to pass their examinations.   “Reading” in Nigeria has posed many problems to secondary school students because of the bad reading habits they display. Many of them were never introduced to formal instructions in reading. The purpose of this write-up therefore, is to identify some bad reading habits among Nigerian students and to propound some solutions to eradicate or at least minimize them. Head movement: some students move their heads unconsciously from side to side as they read. Such movement is both unnecessary and wasteful. Students should have friends, observe them while they read to discover whether or not they are wasting time and energy through head movement. Tracing with a… Read More »BAD READING HABITS AMONG STUDENTS: REMEDIES PROFFERED



We are in the 21st century, therefore, education should move in the upward positive trend, not reverse. Do you know that it is almost impossible for for a doctor to kill or paralyse the health system of his patients without the minority of the world knowing about it, but it is very possible for a teacher to kill a thousand people at a time and even extend it to many generation. What a malady! It’s so disheartening when I walk up to have a question-like discussion with some students/pupils and I realized there is a damage, though not beyond repair. What a damage? If I ask you to guess, I’m sure you won’t get it right after 10 trials.   The damage is “teachers unjustifiably abbreviating words that shouldn’t be abbreviated”. The saddest part is that most of them won’t give the acronyms. Abbreviations like CRK, IRK, CCA, ICT, RNV,… Read More »TEACHERS UNCONSCIOUSLY MAKING THE LEARNERS IGNORAMUS

The aim of this article is to establish you the information that “children they say are the gifts from God,yet they are allowed to suffer by those who should be taking care of them”   The convention on the rights of the child, regarding the importance of family adds that “The child for the full and harmonious development of his or her personality, should grow up in the family environment, in an atmosphere of happiness, love and understanding. In Nigeria today, that ideal is far from being achieved. Child abuse seems to be the order of the day. Please, let’s help to eradicate child abuse in Nigeria   CONCEPT OF WHO A CHILD IS Who is a child? A child is any young person below the age of eighteen. From the definition given, we can deduce that a child will fall between the age brackets of a-day old to eighteen years… Read More »CHILD ABUSE

There are things that distinguish champions from others. Most of the people think it’s their talent but I will argue that it’s their mindset. If you’re natural, you believe that you shouldn’t have deficiencies, so you can’t face them and coach them. In my findings, I have identified two mindsets about ability that people may hold.( Fixed mindset and growth mindset) FIXED MINDSET People with this mindset see abilities as fixed features. In this view, talents are referred to as gifts, you either have them or you don’t. The fixed mindset, in which you have only a certain amount of a valued talent, leads people to want to look good at all times. People in fixed mindset try to highlight their proficiencies and hide their deficiencies. Infact, it is obvious that they will often reject valuable learning opportunities if these opportunities hold the risk of unmasking their weaknesses.   Even… Read More »BECOMING A CHAMPION

Boarding life is undoubtedly an interesting experience a child will love to have. How true is that? It is very true to a reasonable extent because as a boarder you will explore a lot of things in a different world, I mean away from your home. Who is a boarder? A boarder is a student who lives at school during term time. In a jiffy, let’s brush through the life of a boarder and what a prospecting boarder should expect. You know that excitement you get after passing your entrance examination and your parents tell you “Tola, get prepared, you will resume on September 8” sure, you are happy……….. ain’t you? But, I tell you when you get to the gate of the school and you are about to part with your parents………… tears will roll down your cheeks, you and your parents, though not all children cry.

From ages, till date and continuously, learning will start from the home. Yes, parents are to the first teachers every child start with, thereby, making the learning process an unforgettable one. Parenting is not a small task, as one need to be extra-careful in the way a child is being brought up. A larger percentage of a child’s behaviour is being nurtured within the four walls of the home. Many signals, gestures, sound, local and universal languages are being learnt by a child from their parents. Let’s get the nails driven into the wood straight away as we look at some kinds of parents we’ve got around us.   The “Hasty Parents”: These parents go as far as fighting and threatening the school their children attend. What is the threat about? It is not a reaction to a teacher who has scolded the child but for an unreasonable idea, like… Read More »​PARENTAL INFLUENCE ON A CHILD’S ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE

According to Great Man theory and Trait theories “Leaders are Born” not made. Great leaders are natural and they are different from the ones that are trained. Most if not all remarkable leaders have their own legacy in leadership and they were leaders from the onset of their journey. Behavioural Theories believe that people can become leaders through the process of teaching, learning and observation. Leadership is a set of skills that can be learned by training, perception, practice and experience over time. Leadership learning is lifetime activity. Good leaders seek out development opportunities that will help them learn new skills. Leadership is an art not science. Being a science scholar I disagree as I always argue Science and Art, both are like two sides of a same coin. Without artistic thinking science itself has no value and vice-versa.   The 5 basic steps in leadership are: 1. Model the… Read More »LEADERSHIP PROBLEMS IN THE EDUCATIONAL INDUSTRY
