Learning Style Issues
Each student has unique learning styles that the humanist teacher must employ for that particular student. However, such styles and evaluations can be very unwieldy and unorganized.
Experience is Required
In a classroom environment, for instance, the teacher’s capability is a very important role in the success of the humanistic approach. This is because in a humanist classroom, the teacher should facilitate students and their open expressions towards feelings in which traditional teaching doesn’t emphasize on it.
Allowing learners to think for themselves can be confusing for those who are not capable of doing so. Likewise, they may feel frustrated because they will not be provided with explanations for their problems.
5 basic principles
Humanistic educators believe that grades are irrelevant and that onlyself-evaluation is meaningful. Grading encourages students to work for a gradeand not for personal satisfaction. In addition, humanistic educators areopposed to objective tests because they test a student's ability to memorize anddo not provide sufficient educational feedback to the teacher and student.
Self directed, Self motivation. Teacher as a facilitator
The goal of education should be to foster students' desire to learn andteach them how to learn. Students should be self-motivated in their studies anddesire to learn on their own.
Humanistic educators insist that schools need to provide students with anonthreatning environment so that they will feel secure to learn. Once studentsfeel secure, learning becomes easier and more meaningful.
The Whole Person, Felt concern
