Have you ever felt pressured by people to learn something new, but weren’t really interested in doing so? If so, you’re not alone. Websitesetuper says, Most of us put off learning new things because it feels like a chore. Most importantly, it’s difficult when all you have are your textbooks or when there is no one around to teach you something new. This guide will arm readers with knowledge on how to get started with learning and teaching themselves, without the difficulty of using textbooks or other ineffective methods of teaching. It will also provide advice about classroom settings and what students should expect from teachers.

To begin, let’s take a look at the history of schooling. For thousands of years, children were taught by their parents. Parents taught their children how to hunt, fish, grow crops and build fires. They also taught them how to care for themselves and others. As time progressed, communities began to wonder if there was a better way to teach children these skills other than having parents do it for them. 

The idea of schools

This got people thinking about the idea of schools being necessary for learning life skills instead of it being something that was done at home. However, children were not sent away from their families until the year 541 A.D., when St. Benedict wrote his manual “ The Rule of St. Benedict ”, which laid the foundation for Western Christian monasticism. Even though there was a school in existence by that time, children were not required to go until the age of 7. 

At this point, children were still taught by their parents and did not go to school until it was necessary. With the emergence of public schooling in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, this changed dramatically. Teachers took on a more authoritative role and students were required to learn things they may not have been interested in learning simply because the teacher told them too. Therefore, teachers came to the conclusion that all children needed to be “educated” by making them study subjects they were not interested in. The result of this was a decrease in student interest and emphasis on the subjects students did like.

The idea of self-teaching

The purpose of this guide is to help people learn and teach themselves. I’ve undergone two years of education myself and have found it difficult to learn new things for myself because there is no one around to teach me. The idea of self-teaching is appealing as there are few barriers that come with learning or teaching yourself as opposed to using textbooks or other such methods such as rote memorization. However, there are three main barriers that need to be overcome in order to succeed at learning and teaching yourself: motivation, resources and skills.

Motivation is a big part of learning anything for yourself. If you’re not motivated to learn something new you will find it difficult to learn it. However, there are a few things you can do to help motivate yourself. The first thing you should do is determine what your goal is for learning something new. If you know what your goal is then it will be easier for you to focus on that and be motivated to achieve it. If your goal is just to learn something new then that’s fine. 

Specific purpose

However, if you want to learn something new for a specific purpose such as getting a job then you should think about what you can use the knowledge of this thing for so it becomes more relevant and interesting. Another way of motivating yourself is by setting goals for yourself, or creating schedules and lists of things you need to accomplish in order to achieve what you want. To get started with achieving these goals, the best thing you can do is break down each goal into smaller steps (or micro-goals). 

Then, you can work on the small goals until they become easier to achieve and eventually you will be able to do them easily. If there are certain things such as studying for a test that you struggle with, make sure you review your notes daily and make flash cards for them, or hand write notes into your notebook whenever possible. 

Creating flash cards

You can also use specialized apps such as Anki that help you learn new information by creating flash cards for each thing you need to learn and then expanding upon it later. If there is a thing you’re interested in but don’t know how to do it yourself, look up instructional videos or watch tutorials online until it becomes easy enough for you. 

The more you practice doing something the easier it will eventually become. If there is something that requires a significant amount of time to learn, don’t feel discouraged if you have to spend a few months learning it in order for it to become easy. It’s important not to get frustrated when this happens, especially if the thing you’re trying to learn isn’t easy for you, or if you have difficulty finding resources or information about it.

Resources are one of the most important things in regards to learning anything new. If there are no resources readily available for you then there’s no way that you can learn what you need in order for that thing to be useful.
