When considering correcting teachers' statement, there are a variety of points of view to be analyzed. Some people say that it is better to interrupt and correct the mistake immediately. Some people claim that waiting until class or meeting is over and the people are gone is the better timing. The others tend to stay silence and say nothing. I have come to my own opinion. There are three important reasons why I think that waiting until the class or meeting is over and the people are gone is the best choice.
First, teachers always determine the schedule of the course before it start. Therefore, it is important to make sure the course does follow the schedule. If student interrupt teacher, it will delay the schedule. For example, once in the high school, my teacher is talking about homework's problems. He make a mistake while trying to solve the problem, my classmate interrupt him immediately. Although it seems to be a nice behavior, but lots of problems had not be solved because teacher need time to correct the previous answer.
Second, correcting teacher means student pays attention on the course and leave a good impression for teacher. For instance, last semester, my professor misspell a word during the class. After the class, I went to talk to my professor for the mistake he made. Surprisingly, he didn't angry, even said that I am an excellent student who pay lots attention. From then on, every time when I ask professor some problems about the test, he is always willing to help me.
Third, students should show their respect not to make teacher embarrassing. Correcting their teacher in public sometimes makes teacher felt embarrassing. For example, last week, my professor was talking about a new technique in the meeting. Seems that professor didn't know the new technique clearly, therefore, he said something wrong about the technique. At the same time, I was wondering should I correct him immediately, or should I shut up and keep listening. Finally, I talked to my professor after every one was gone. My professor thanked to me for my correct, and also thanked me that I didn't correct during the meeting because it will make him embarrassing.
After those thing, I have learned correct teacher after the class. Of course, I don't mean to suggest that my point of view is unassailable. Nevertheless, I feel that my opinion is built on a solid foundation.Read more
