You primarily learn within the four walls of your classroom. Books, supplemental materials, and the Internet only teach content. The information teachers share in their classroom—the human element of communicating and transmitting information to students—serves as the foundation for your education. Being a productive, prepared student in any classroom, from the smallest seminar to the largest lecture hall, is crucial in being able to achieve success in school. What you learn in the classroom should carry beyond its walls and into your life outside. Making connections between the classroom and outside world demonstrates that you value and apply your education to life.
