I am surprised to see and experience
overgeneralisation of students learning needs in education across the
levels of education. People (expert) believe that students at a level
have similar learning needs irrespective of their mother tongue,
culture, medium of instruction, socio-economic characteristics. However,
a person with hunger, thirst, needs food, and water respectively to
satisfy his/ her needs. Why can’t we afford the same in learning needs.
Why can’t we make it specific to each class at least if not possible for
individual student due to administrative constraints. Why is the
process of needs analysis taken for granted. The teacher may take the
initiative formal/informal to do this before trying to make learner’s
learn something that suffice the features of innovative, modern, skill
oriented, competitive, etc. We the teachers shall provide a way out.
u r absolutely right sir
