Humility and Appreciation - DGHS

Humility and Appreciation, narrated by Mohini Chauhan of The Doon Girls’ School at Dehradun. The future of education will be built on immutable values alone: Appreciation, Caring, Co-operation, Courage, Freedom, Friendship, Happiness, Honesty, Hope, Humility, Love, Patience, Peace, Quality, Respect, Responsibility, Simplicity, Thoughtfulness, Tolerance, Trust, Understanding & Unity. Joy Of Learning (JOL) is based on The Little Book of Values: Educating Children to Become Thinking, Responsible and Caring Citizens by Julie Duckworth and Ian Gilbert, explores twenty-two values that can be taught through schools. This program will inspire you by using examples of where the values are already being used by children and adults in schools and share practical tools to stimulate discussion and philosophical debate. It will also help people to take stock of their values and how they wish to lead their life. There is always something to appreciate, in someone, even the worst character will have something to be appreciated. So we should appreciate it as that’s the only way to build the self-esteem of a student. In a class there are braggers or the boasters who are the opposite of humility, probably they are most in need of appreciation as they haven’t achieved much. And the people who achieve appreciation or are acknowledged tend to be most humble because everyone knows and applauds them. So I think if the teacher focuses on what can be appreciated and bringing ng their self-esteem up by saying good things then they will also come to a point where they will start appreciating themselves and then become HUMBLE. Humility is at the RECEIVING end and Appreciation is at the GIVING end, that is why these two values sync very well. The bottom line is a child has to be a GOOD HUMAN BEING. If the children are coming out of school as good human beings then obviously they were taught by good human beings. --- Support this podcast:
