Unseen Comprehension Passages  Set III – [07]

Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow:

Children have an immense power of observation and their feelings are deep-rooted. They always observe their parents at home and their teachers in school.

The method of teaching moral values to students is universal. It is the most important duty of the teachers. Children resort to lie for their personal gains. They are really clever and try to get what they want by any means. They will steal and say that they not. To teach them that stealing or telling lie is bad will be lost labour. It is an unrealistic approach.

Thus examples of honesty and truthfulness in school and colleges are more effective than precepts or moral preaching. Students are very sensitive. They fast copy their teachers. The teachers should always behave properly and set an example. The students look at them as their ideal.

Even some student of cultured and refined families lose moral values if the school environment is not proper. If a child observes his teachers to be truthful and honest, he shall also imbibe some of their virtues. In schools the textbooks ought to be based on symbolic stories. Mere platform lecture by teachers on the values of truth and honesty would bear no fruit.

These days the government plans the texts of the children on these principles. In History, characters of great heroes, social reformers and prophets of truth are painted through colourful stories. These directly influence the personality of a child. They readily condemn the evil doers and the liars. They follow such allegories or parables as facts and believe them readily. Like a tender seedling that grows if it finds good soil, the minds of students get a solid base.

The process of learning for a child is not magical. It is important that the student has sound base of strong moral values. It calls for much caution and observation from school and college authorities.

  1. How does the government plan the text?
