Needed form Outside the School:
Positive influences from outside of school are needed for students to thrive—positive, healthy, uplifting and, stable environments.
Students should be encouraged to explore interests outside of school, leading them to inquiry-based learning and concept mapping. This will lead to children feeling more in control of their learning and perusing their individual strengths and interests, allowing for further evaluation, reflection, and self-correction.
Too much instructional time outside of school has proven to be not in the best interest of young children as children are to experience the world around them with families and friends. These provide valuable material for children to draw upon when interacting with their peers, writing their own stories or relating to books they are reading.
