Jon McCard Professor Andy Banking Concept Banking Concept “Instead of communicating, the teacher issues communiqués and makes deposits which the students are the depositories and the teacher is the depositor . The “banking” concept of education, is based on the scope of action allowed to the students extends only as far as receiving, filing, and storing the deposits . (257)” From what I remember about some of my previous teachers are that I really didn’t learn that much . Basically the teachers talk and the students listen . The teacher has all the power and the students do whatever the teacher wants . Some of my favorite teachers I have had during my education were ones that didn’t just read by the book . They actually were able to get the students involved in the discussion and ask us what we really felt about what we were learning . I believe that is the best way to get through to a student by interacting them with the learning process, getting them involve in a discussion with the class . When, during a child’s education, should we get rid of this “banking” concept and move onto problem posing? By explaining this with previous experiences I can show why students need the “banking” concept in grade school and middle school, but when they get into high school they should start a different approach . If you look at the average kindergartner without any knowledge at all about school and don’t even know how to write . Teachers need to start using the banking concept in order for these kindergartners to learn .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
