Teaching Grammar to the Grammatically Oblivious - Cries of, “But when will we ever use this in real life?” resound through classrooms, debilitating teachers in their pursuit of student excellence. Once a staple in schools, grammar has become anathema to the standard course of English instruction. With the advent of the impending pertinence of the "real world," the tediousness and technicality of the study of grammar has undergone microscopic scrutiny. The real world forces people to face technical and tedious situations sometimes, however. Thus, the technical construct of grammar should not be grounds for its immediate dismissal....   [tags: debilitating teachers, students excellence]

Two well-known models characterize learners by age: pedagogy and andragogy. Pedagogy focuses on the teacher-child learner relationship and andragogy focuses on the teacher-adult learner relationship. While pedagogy is a longstanding theory that can be traced back to the monastic schools of Europe in the 7th century, Malcolm Knowles brought recognition to the concept of andragogy in the 20th century (Merriam, Caffarella, & Baumgartner, 2007; Knowles, 1973)....   [tags: pedagogy and andragogy]

Teaching Real Sex in Highschool - Teaching sex education is like telling a kid not to go in a cookie jar. A child usually asks for a cookie and the parent replies, “No.” “Don’t go into the cookie jar.” Then that child will climb or do whatever it can to get that cookie from the jar. As you can picture, parents say no without sharing the reason behind it or how to do what’s being asked. That is the problem not only with children, but also with teenagers. Parents, teachers, and mentors use the abstinence- only approach, which means they only teach high school students not to have sex and that it’s bad, but not all the facts behind it (Crooks 2014)....   [tags: abstinence, safe choices, teenagers]

Andragogy is “based on a number of assumptions about the adult learner” (Merriam, Caffarella, and Baumgartner, 2007, p. 84).

Teaching Philosophy - Teaching Philosophy Stephen Brookfield (2006) defines a teaching philosophy as “…a set of values, beliefs, insights, and convictions about the essential forms and fundamental purposes of teaching” (p. 255). A teaching philosophy should serve to support a teacher and guide his or her actions so that the students’ best interests are always of primary focus.

Teaching as a Profession - Teaching as a Profession Individuals who enter the field of education reply to the question why teach with various answers. There is beauty, joy, and fulfillment in this profession, and these spirit-lifting emotions are the result of watching annually as a new group of children enter to learn and leave with the knowledge to achieve. Richard Dufour (2000), author of Why Teach expressed his views on the profession first by stating that teaching is not the career for everyone. He goes on to say, that the education profession has the ability to present the “unique opportunity” for individuals to cast a positive influence upon others (Why Teach, 2000, p.1)....   [tags: essays papers] 2238 words

Teaching Mathematics - When teaching mathematics to children the teacher’s enthusiasm can determine whether or not the child's math experience is negative or positive. 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.

Effective Teaching - Introduction “Those that can, do. Those that can’t, teach”. This simple proverb from George Bernard Shaw’s “Man and Superman” is often quoted in modern times, denigrating the hard work of teachers from preparatory grades right through to the highest academic institutions. While it is true that almost anyone can teach in the true definition of the word, being an effective teacher is a much harder proposition. A truly effective teacher has a wide pedagogical skill set, along with the knowledge of when to apply it, an awareness of their students in terms of their needs and abilities and an understanding of the curriculum and its aims....   [tags: Education]

I believe that our educational system expects our students to learn a certain amount of information and regurgitate it back to their teachers in the form of tests such as EOG’s. With this style of teaching, other subjects are suffering. All year, teachers are prepping students to pass the EOG’s while neglecting other areas. Naturally, you have some students who will shine.

Teaching Procedures - Continuity and progression, in the context of education, refer to the ways in which pupils' understanding builds and develops during their time in School. Cohen et al. (2010, pag 134) defines continuity as "an important educational principle, arguing that the curriculum that is planned must build on prior curricular experiences that the students have had." This requires the teacher to assess where the student is in intellectual development, knowledge, skills, organisation and so, in order that subsequent plan can stretch the pupil instead of rendering the learning boring or impossible....   [tags: continuity, progression, education]
