112 Some educational systems emphasize the development of students' capacity for reasoning and logical thinking
I believe in both the ideas of the author that the educational system should emphasize on students capacity for reasoning, logical thinking and also a student must be able to explore his or her own emotions.
Issac Newton, who is the greatest scientist of all times, invented “acceleration due to gravity” by simply observing a falling apple from a tree. Then he thought about it and explored his thought. In this case, he combined his reasoning AND
logical thinking with [u] bad sentence structure here, I guess his exploring is misplaced here
his exploring of his emotions. Thomas Alva Edison might not have invented phone or electricity if he had not put his reasoning into research.
I believe exploring one's own ideas will not be successful if they are explored without reasoning and logical thinking. They must work together if some beneficial outcome has to come out of it. so any Educational system should concentrate on both the ideas to be successful. This paragraph seem to be a re-iteration of the above paragraph and only recounting the same idea....Might as well exclude this para
I would like to give my personal experience about exploring our own emotions. I am generally hesitant of putting my emotions into actions. I recently learned driving. I luckily passed the road test and got my licence. One week I drove with my husband. After that I got the courage to go on my own. That day I drove sometime and parked the car. I was taking the car out of a parking lot, I reversed the car a little bit, one car was coming
comming behind me, so I hurried and my car went over the curb. Though nothing bad happened, at that time a little reasoning of waiting sometime for the other car to pass me might have helped. Hmm, well I am not too sure if this example makes a lot of sense here for this topic...It is more like a general tendency of any new driver to act in haste like u did....I guess its misplaced in this essay
So even if it is inventing something huge or doing something in everyday life, combining our emotions with reasoning and logical thinking
really helps. So educational systems should practice on this. After all, today's students are tomorrow's explorers. Summary seem to come to an end more abruptly than it should be!!. Or did u miss the final para??? Anycase, a better summary would be good for this essay
