Inviting guest speakers into the classroom has become an important part of the education experience for students these days. In this context, what else can be better when the children get an experience to see their own parents teaching in the school they study. Students not only get exposed to the real-world life experiences from the position of someone who has been there but they also get to analyze the perspective of the guest speaker’s particular field. It provides students access to other perspectives and adds diversity to the classroom.
Other than the real book material, parent guest speakers generally give an insight into their real-world experiences. It really helps in the enhancement of the students’ educational experience. One of the best parts of the guest lecture is that the students get an opportunity to connect what they learn in their textbooks and what they learn from the speakers. They strongly build important connections between what they are learning and the real world.
This apart, when parent guest speakers connect with the students, they give offer them a different perspective on many things. This process gives them the opportunity to learn something new. Oakridge believes in working cooperatively with parents for the students learning. The guest lecture by parents help to create the kind of educational environment wherein students will be able to realize their greatest opportunities for growth. In line with this, the school regularly conducts guest lectures by parents in the school. Parents come to the school and teach the students about various things such as music, art, literature, general knowledge, science, math, etc.
