The Banking Concept of Education written by Paulo Freire explains two different types of education The first of these two types would be the banking concept In the banking concept the teacher is assumed to know everything and the student to know nothing The teachers deposit all of their knowledge into the students memory meaning the usual day would be a lecture from the teacher and listening from the students The second of these types discussed in Freires essay is the problem-posing concept This concept is where teachers and students interact with each other by discussing different subjects In the banking concept of education Freire is describing a situation that occurs everyday in a typical classroom The teacher gives the students information to receive memorize and then repeat Each of these two types would work in the classroom but which one is right for me Personally I disagree with the banking concept of learning My reasoning for this is that the teacher is giving the students facts and ideas yet not making the students understand what the facts and ideas really mean You might memorize facts but eventually if its never learned and applied it will be easily forgotten I feel like I learn best by interacting with the teacher so I can fully understand what I am learning by asking responsive questions In addition to interacting with a teacher working in groups or with my peers also helps me to understand information because the material is broken down into terms I can fully understand Another reason I disagree with the banking concept is because students shouldnt be assumed to be ignorant and taught solely from the teacher As a child we are taught to read write think and behave We didnt memorize these skills only to forget them later on we were taught these skills by our elders As a child when I would misbehave I got punished The interaction with my mother
