War Vs Peace- Divya Upadhyay

"War" vs " Peace" where "War" represents a style of teaching which is strict where the teacher is authoritarian while "Peace" represents teaching in a collaborative atmosphere. Both of these have a different impact on student's learning, behaviour and overall development.

War Approach - Teachers can be successful in maintaining discipline. Less distraction is seen in this type of class. When there is control and authority of the teacher, it can lead to efficient class delivery. Also, students follow the rules out of feat.

On the other hand War Approach inhibits students from thinking critically and creatively as students have to follow the teacher. Constant pressure may lead to stress and demotivation among students. Students may not engage fully in the learning process as they have to follow a fixed set of rules.

Peace Approach- When the environment is supportive students start developing trust and respect which ultimately leads to better learning.

Students can express themselves, ask questions, take risks and which will help them to understand the topic deeply. We are giving priority to the emotional health of students through this approach.

In spite of many pros, the Peace Approach can at times make students so relaxed that they would not set any boundaries for themselves which will ultimately lead to distraction.

Dealing with a matter in a peaceful way may be time-consuming as students at times take things lightly getting so light environment.

Ultimately both approaches could be carried out in a balanced way as we need to decide which approach to use depending on students' mindset, and their way of taking things.

Can we go with a balanced approach so that we can emphasize discipline and also prioritize empathy and collaboration?
