What do professors think of slow learners in the classroom? 老师怎么看待学习慢的学生?

When I was five years old, I played the role of the turtle in a play organized by my older sister. I had one line at the end, when I beat the sleeping rabbit to the finish line: slow and steady wins the race.

我五岁时在我姐姐组织的一场演出中扮演乌龟,最后打败熟睡的兔子冲过终点线时有一句台词:又慢又稳赢得了比赛。

I’ve always felt that those words guided my career. I was never the fastest; I was rarely an A student.

我总是感觉那些话对我的事业有指导作用,我从来不是最快的,我几乎没得过A。

 

But as the careers of others stalled, I kept going.

但当其他人事业停滞不前时,我的事业一直在发展。

 

My goal was always the same: to learn more this year than I had last year.

我的目标始终如一重庆英语培训学校:今年要比去年多学点东西。

 

When I see slow students, that’s what I think of.

我看到学习慢的学生时就是这样想的。

 

Are those the students who will keep learning over their entire lifetime, and leave the “quick” students far behind?

那些学生能否终其一生都在学习,然后把学习快的学生远远落在后面?

 

Some people have difficulty with particular topics. They may also have a slow deliberate style.

有些人理解某些特定话题有困难,他们可能是缓慢从容的风格。

 

I don’t have a problem with them either, so long as they are trying.

我教他们也没什么困难,只要他们努力即可。

 

I usually have them come in to see me during office hours, and/or spend time with a TA (if there is one) if they need the extra help.

我经常会在工作期间叫他们来见我,或者如果他们需要额外帮助就让他们跟助教聊聊(如果有助教的话)。

 

The goal of education is not to gain as much knowledge as quickly as possibly, but to gain useful knowledge and retain it.

教育的目标不是以最快速度获取最多知识,而是要获取有用的知识并记在大脑里。

 

As such, I would prefer a slow, thoughtful student to a fast, superficial one.

正因如此,相较于学习快、肤浅的学生而言,我更喜欢学习慢但深思熟虑的学生。

 

Technically, I’m not a professor yet, but I have taught middle and high school students, and I’m currently teaching undergraduate machine learning.

从专业角度来说,我还不是一名教授,但我教过中学生和高中生,我现在教大学生机器学习。

 

As a teacher, I don’t care how “fast” someone learns something.

作为一名教师,我不在乎学生学习有多快。

 

There may be a lot of reasons someone picks up a particular subject or topic more quickly: more background, natural adeptness, previous exposure to the material, more sleep that night, less stress, and so on.

有很多原因会导致学生学习某一特定学科或话题比别人快:更多的背景知识、天生的熟练、之前接触过相关材料、前一晚睡眠更充足、压力更小等。

 

We process information differently.

我们处理信息有所不同。

 

To use myself as an example, I tended to be comparatively slow in my advanced undergraduate mathematics classes.

以我自己为例,我在大学高数课上就属于相对学习慢的。

 

In retrospect, I’ve come to realize that one of the ways I learn is “error-based.” That is, I effectively learn by making mistakes.

回顾过去,我意识到我的一种学习方法是“以错为鉴”,就是通过犯错有效地学习。
