Recently, “Guangming Daily” Education Weekly organized and published three ideological and political courses, “Lying flat is never the right path in life”, “Lying down and winning will only lose life” and “Only struggling to live up to this life”, focusing on the teaching of ideological and political courses in the new era. Hot and difficult issues have triggered heated discussions among teachers and students in colleges and universities and generated widespread repercussions. The author believes that to promote the high-quality development of ideological and political courses under the new situation, teachers of ideological and political courses should have a high sense of responsibility and mission, closely focus on the fundamental task of cultivating moral character and cultivating people, and actively respond to the new challenges and new requirements faced by ideological and political courses in the new era. Continue to deepen the reform of ideological and political courses, and teach ideological and political courses in the new era while maintaining integrity and innovation.
Strengthen ideals and beliefs, and teach ideological and political courses in the new era with confidence. Ideological and political courses are courses that educate students about their ideals and beliefs. Teachers in ideological and political courses must be strong in politics and firm in their ideals and beliefs. We must improve our political stance and unify the power of truth with the power of personality. This not only requires ideological and political teachers to teach the class well and show the charm of the truth of scientific theories in every word and deed, but also requires ideological and political teachers to be upright, show personality charm in teaching and educating people, and be “teachers” and ” The unifier of “human teacher”. Only by being clear in theory can we be firm in politics. Teachers of ideological and political courses should read more original works, learn the original texts, understand the principles and understand the original meanings, draw the power of truth from classic works, further strengthen their scientific beliefs, and be pious and persistent, sincere and profound. At present, we must especially study and interpret Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era in depth, deeply grasp its worldview and methodology, closely integrate the changing world conditions, national conditions, party conditions, and academic conditions in the new era, persist in being confident, self-reliant, and take responsibility, so that we can be full of enthusiasm and enthusiasm. Walk into the classroom with high spirits, step onto the podium, and speak out what you know and do in the ideological and political course.
Strengthen academic research and continuously improve theoretical literacy. To teach an ideological and political course well, it must not only be affectionate, meaningful and interesting, but more importantly, it must convince people with reason. Ideological and political courses are essentially about reasoning, explaining clearly the basic principles of Marxism, and thoroughly explaining the principles and philosophy of the party’s innovative theory. Teachers of ideological and political courses must have a solid theoretical foundation, be able to use the power of truth to inspire students, and win students with a profound theoretical foundation. Therefore, the teaching of ideological and political courses cannot be separated from strong academic research support. For teachers of ideological and political courses, teaching and scientific research are both basic skills, and neither can be neglected. Teaching requires scientific research, and scientific research serves teaching. Especially when teachers face difficult questions from students in the process of teaching ideological and political courses, they must have sufficient knowledge reserves and theoretical literacy to answer them correctly. One of the important purposes of establishing the first-level subject of Marxist Theory and the first-level subject of Party History and Party Building is to serve the teaching of ideological and political courses and provide profound academic support for teaching. In addition, teachers of ideological and political courses should also actively participate in academic research and actively use various theoretical and practical results of subject construction to support and improve the quality of ideological and political course teaching, thereby achieving a virtuous cycle in which teaching guides scientific research and scientific research supports teaching.
Follow the laws of education and teaching and promote the transformation of teaching discourse. In the author’s opinion, teaching ideological and political courses is a kind of moral education narrative, and this narrative must have a suitable carrier, that is, teaching discourse. Teachers of ideological and political courses usually use textbooks as the basic basis for teaching, but this is far from enough. In teaching, if you only start from the teaching materials, it is easy to “repeat what is taught”. Teaching ideological and political courses well requires a transformation process from a teaching material system to a teaching system. A very important aspect of this is to achieve effective transformation of teaching discourse according to actual teaching needs. To achieve discourse transformation, we must not only be good at using academic discourse to explain politics well, but also be good at using daily discourse to explain theory thoroughly. Teachers of ideological and political courses must learn to transform theoretical results into easy-to-understand words, tell ideological and political stories in vivid language, and tell theories in language that is close to students’ daily life, so as to continuously enhance the attractiveness of ideological and political courses. Of course, it is not easy to do this well. This not only requires teachers of ideological and political courses to fully understand the theory, but also to be able to popularize it while avoiding vulgarization.
Innovate teaching methods and methods to continuously enhance teaching appeal. The teaching of ideological and political courses should be an organic unity of teaching form and teaching content. In order to make the teaching content easy for students to understand and master, teachers of ideological and political courses need to constantly change teaching methods and methods based on the actual situation. The author believes that the teaching contents and requirements of ideological and political courses are unified, but the teaching methods and methods can be diversified and diversified. For different schools, different majors, and different academic conditions, differentiated teaching methods that suit their respective characteristics should be developed. Targeted teaching methods are conducive to activating the classroom atmosphere, stimulating students’ interest, mobilizing students’ enthusiasm for learning, and further improving teaching effects. At present, science and technology are developing rapidly, and students are mainly young faces born after 2000. Ideological and political teachers must adapt to the changes of the times and the psychological characteristics of students, actively use new technologies and new media methods, organize and implement classroom teaching in a way that students like, and change The traditional rigid and single teaching method. There is a method for teaching, but there is no fixed method for teaching. The most important thing is to get the method. Only when teachers persistently reform and innovate the teaching methods of ideological and political courses can the appeal of ideological and political courses be truly enhanced.
Expand teaching ideas and teach “big ideological and political courses” in the new era. Ideological and political courses should not just stop in the classroom, but also extend to social life. To teach ideological and political courses well, we must broaden the horizons of teaching ideas, make good use of the “big ideological and political courses” practical teaching base, expand practical teaching methods, innovatively teach “walking ideological and political courses” and “ideological and political courses in venues”, and use the new era The vivid practice of great changes explains the party’s innovative theory and continuously improves the pertinence and attractiveness of ideological and political courses. The importance of the “big ideological and political course” is that it is a major social course and a systematic project, which requires making good use of “big” resources and gathering “big” synergy. On the one hand, we organize and carry out diversified practical teaching, create a large social classroom on the front line of production labor and social practice, and realize the effective extension of small classrooms in schools to large social classrooms, allowing students to understand society, temper their will, and accumulate experience in practice, Integrate patriotism, ambition to strengthen the country, and service to the country into life choices and practical actions to build a spiritual cornerstone for young students and consolidate the foundation of life; on the other hand, we must continue to expand the work pattern of “big ideological and political courses”, integrate multiple social resources, and expand the classroom radius, forming a large ideological and political classroom that covers the classroom, campus, and society, integrating “points, lines, and surfaces” to gather the joint efforts of the whole society to educate people, and create an educational atmosphere that enlightens people’s wisdom and nourishes their hearts in a subtle and silent way.
