5 LIES School Taught You!

When I was in school, there were a lot of things that my teachers told me not to do that research has since shown to be actually beneficial for students. Read the article if you’ve noticed some drawbacks in schooling as well!



Can you enlarge this list with some other things that are actually useful for students? Write about your school days and things you were punished for?

I must be old! None of these were told to me when I was in school.

texting? iPods? I left elementary school in 1962; these were not issues. (And, as teacher from 1970-2010, my only objection to gum was that it often ended up stuck on the under side of the desk or stuck the carpet on the floor).

I was born in 1952. I only got to doodle or daydream.

I discovered when at school that if I had records playing I remembered my homework better, my mother didn't agree! But many years later working as a programmer I frequently solved problems by leaving them and sleeping on them, invariably I woke up with the answer the next day - guess I was lucky.

I was never told any of these, but then there were no cell phones etc.

Nancy Schwalen, I agree! I left elementary school in 1962, as well, and I taught school from 1977-2010. I retired and have been teaching part-time since 2010. The only thing bad about gum is the mess it made: on furniture, school materials, floor, stuck on trash can, wrappers everywhere, stuck in kids’ hair, on clothes, on shoes, etc. Yuk!

Texting improves language skills? I have to disagree, just talk with all the young adults and kids I deal with at my job. Spelling and language is out the door.

I taught high school and often chewed gum very subtly in class!! Also had a can of Diet Coke on my desk. Hidden. Couldn’t get through all those classes without it. Kids knew about it but admin didn’t!!

Lynne Cage, Me, too. My mother didn't like it but I told her it helped. Quietness distracted me, but I don't know why.

The only reason that gum was generally not allowed was that it ended up being stuck almost everywhere! Under/on desks, chairs, hair etc.

music. Think some music is definitely distracting to studying.

Often I did my High School homework with the TV on for background noise. Many moons ago

I like chewing gum when I go for my walks, however; when I am working, I need complete silence with zero distraction. I take breaks for fresh ideas.

Don Markusic, Thank you for that. I am getting close to 70 myself and I love technology. We have to move with the times and embrace the new rather than try to cling to the old ways...that attitude will keep us young long into our senior years. Thank you again for saying it so well.

I'm just an old gum-chewing daydreamer, lol. I learned these things on my own many years ago as I doodled my way through long tedious unnecessary meetings. Most meetings I went to provided pen and paper because they know that doodling means you are listening whereas chattering or whispering to your neighbour is not a good sign. I was interested in the music and the texting as I hadn't heard those before but they too make sense. Mind you - if they weren't texting would they be daydreaming?? LOL
