When students are engrossed in their learning – entranced by their learning environment or activities – their brains respond in a variety of ways, forging connections and forming schema that would not occur if they were not passionate or emotional. Much of what we want children to memorize has little emotional resonance. Emotions have a significant impact on memory formation and recall. Material that is emotionally charged is easier to remember than information that is neutral or flat.
Passionate engagement, aside from impacting emotion, can also enable students to feel in charge of their own learning. You can be the one to transform learning by talking about enthusiasm, inspiring passion, developing passion, or thinking passionately about your own interests.
This is where a mentor, such as a friend or relative, can walk alongside your student and speak into their lives. Mentors who share your student’s interests, as well as their skills and experience, may have something more to offer. So having a mentor plays a huge role in shaping up the mindset of a student. Abderrahman Zahid, a counseling mentor and founder of Tawjeeh counseling is the perfect example to talk about when it comes to invoking the sense of passion among students.
Abderrahman Zahid has helped over 32000 Moroccan students to shape up their careers and eventually their life. Not having a mentor in his childhood to guide him about career choices, Abderrahman Zahid makes sure to prevent this from happening to any child enrolling in his institute.
Abderrahman Zahid makes use of many creative and innovative techniques to invoke the sense of passion and career orientation in his students. His organization is full of very educated and cooperative mentors who not only tutor children but guide them at each and every point about their career choices.
Inspired by his own sufferings and challenges, Abderrahman Zahid decided to be a knight in shining armor for all the kids lost in the world of so many careers and are unable to choose from this vast array of professions. Abderrahman Zahid being a Moroccan himself, is aware of challenges faced by Moroccan students, hence he is completely capable of addressing these issues and providing the best solutions for the students.
The search for meaning is a common human need. We can learn from Abderrahman Zahid’s example, that despite him being a top student he was lacking something meaningful. Therefore he teaches his students to become a part of something bigger than themselves as if their work matters and has an impact. It’s not uncommon for passion to spread. And when you’re around someone like Abderrahman Zahid’s, who is enthusiastic about something, it rubs off on you.
