My Philosophy of Teaching - Philosophy of Education My philosophy of education is based on Rousseau’s theory that children are "born good", John Lock’s theory of a blank slate and the philosophy of progressive education. As soon as we’re born our learning process begins. We have the natural instinct of the noble savage, and a clean slate ready to collect information from our environment. Progressive education recognizes the importance of the social environment and the core curriculum. It’s important for children to learn the general studies of language to communicate their ideas, and history, math and sciences to make cognitive decisions about economical and social issues....   [tags: Philosophy Education Teaching] 389 words

Ethics in Teaching - Ethics in Teaching Ethics should be a main concern when a teacher is deciding how to teach and what he/she plans on teaching. Ethics are the morals that a person believes in. A central concern is a main idea. I looked up pedagogy in the dictionary and its definition is the state or art of teaching. Therefore, when I hear the phrase, "Ethics must be seen as a central concern of critical pedagogy," said by Henry A.

My Teaching Philosophy - My Teaching Philosophy As defined by Webster, to educate is "to supervise mental or moral growth." But when one gets to the core of the word it is more important to society. Without education, society as a whole would gradually fall apart. My goal in life is to relay knowledge to my students to help them become productive citizens. Several philosophers have laid paths, or guidelines, for producing these citizens. One in particular stands out in my eyes. Rousseau. Rousseau and I both agree that the majority of people have the same intelligence....   [tags: Philosophy of Teaching Education Teachers Essays] 777 words

Philosophy of Teaching - Philosophy of Teaching My philosophy of teaching is simple; learning should be enjoyable and individualistic. If the students find the lessons interesting they are more likely to pay attention and in turn grasp the concepts easier. Because every student is different, which I quickly found while teaching in Trenton, I feel that it is best to incorporate a variety of teaching styles into each lesson. With the use of multiple teaching styles and activities I will see that each students needs are met....   [tags: Education Teachers Reflective Writing Essays] 777 words

Teaching Philosophy - Teaching Philosophy What is my philosophy concerning education. For as long as there has been “learning”, this question has been debated. As with any “opinion question” this question brings forth very strong discussion. Everyone has his or her own thoughts regarding this. Parents, administrators, professors, teachers (those retired and those yet to be.) all have varying views on what education should be. In all the points I wish to make, the two which seem of utmost importance are to be flexible enough with your position that new thoughts and ideas are at least considered and to keep the welfare of the children first and foremost in all beliefs....   [tags: Education Teachers Classroom Essays] 787 words

Nothing Compares to Teaching - Nothing Compares to Teaching When I first started college I was not sure what I wanted to do with my life. I would ask myself “If I could do anything I wanted to do for eight hours a day and get paid for it, what would I do?” After thinking about that question a couple of times the answer seemed perfectly clear. Spending my career devoted to children would be the most rewarding thing I could do with my life.

Teaching Philosophy - Philosophy At this point in my study in education, I have become accustomed to the educational Philosophies of essentialism and social reconstruction. I tend to lean toward essentialism more, because I think there needs to be more emphasis placed on reading, writing, mathematics, science, and social studies. I have an interest in social reconstruction, because I feel students need to be encouraged to address and maybe even attempt to help solve social problems. I strongly feel this Philosophy is dependent on the grade level of the students....   [tags: School Learning Education Essays] 825 words

Balanced Literacy vs Whole Language Approach to Teaching Reading - Whole language is considered a "top down" approach where the reader constructs a personal meaning for a text based on using their prior knowledge to interpret the meaning of what they are reading. Teachers are expected to provide a literacy rich environment for their students and to combine speaking, listening, reading, and writing. Whole language teachers emphasize the meaning of texts over the sounds of letters, and phonics instruction becomes just one component of the whole language classroom....   [tags: Teaching Reading]

Teaching Philosophy - Teaching Philosophy I take a completely humanistic view when it comes to educating children.

Teaching Philosophy - Teaching Philosophy Education, as well as children, has always been very important to me. My favorite game to play growing up was always “school”.

Teaching in the Nude - So there I was, standing in the locker room. There were eight four-year olds (boys and girls) the two teachers (both women, around the age of twenty five) and me. It was a Wednesday, which means it is a swim day. As everyone around me began shedding his or her clothes, I felt my heart skip a beat as I wondered where I was going to change. "Um, do I just take off my clothes and change right in front of the children?" I asked, sheepishly. "Well, unless you plan to swim in your clothes, I think it would be a good idea to take off your clothes!" was the Danish response....   [tags: Personal Narrative Essay Example] 866 words

Over the past few weeks I feel that my philosophy on teaching has changed drastically. Students look up to their teachers, they look to learn and to have a companion. The students have a thirst for knowledge. I always thought that students would dread coming to math, but many look forward to it.

For instance if you do not like math chances are, it will show up in the activities that you prepare for the child, as well as the way you go about a question because the children will sense your frustration that you have for math. If a teacher likes math on the other hand the activities will be well thought out, and the children will be able to ask questions without having the feeling that the teacher is frustrated because they are giving off a positive attitude....   [tags: Math Education, teacher] 910 words
