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]

Teaching Goals - After watching this video, I started to wonder if our schools are truly preparing our students for the real world. 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]

Teaching Adults: Is it different? - Teaching Adults: Is it different. The adult education literature generally supports the idea that teaching adults should be approached in a different way than teaching children and adolescents. The assumption that teachers of adults should use a different style of teaching is based on the widely espoused theory of andragogy, which suggests that "adults expect learner-centered settings where they can set their own goals and organize their own learning around their present life needs" (Donaldson, Flannery, and Ross-Gordon 1993, p....   [tags: Education School Essays]

Personal Statement of Teaching Philosophy - Personal Statement of Teaching Philosophy I. Teaching Philosophy and Goals I have one goal for my teaching: helping students to think and learn for themselves. This goal is as simple as it is illusive. The more experience I have as a teacher, the more I understand that there is no one-way of achieving my aim. Clearly, the proper focus of education is learning, not teaching; but I know that it is within a teacher's power-and thus it is the teacher's responsibility-to create the conditions necessary to allow students to learn....   [tags: Graduate College Admissions Essays] 995 words

Exploring Subjectivity in Teaching Philosophy - Exploring Subjectivity in Teaching Philosophy ABSTRACT: In the teaching of philosophy, we need to be connect with everyday life. Students in introductory courses can be more motivated when philosophical problems have personal significance. Take the topic of 'selfhood.' Introductory textbooks generally begin with the oracle at Delphi: "Know thyself!" But this motto is usually treated as the search for general knowledge of the individual or of human nature. Is it possible for a student to acquire some knowledge about him or herself during this course and reflect on it in a philosophically relevant way....   [tags: Philosophy Philosophical Papers]

Educational Theory of Teaching Writing - When I first encountered Paulo Freire’s work, I was struck with the hypocrisy of my own teaching. I had deluded myself into thinking, to a certain extent, that I was creating a democratic and equal space that was free from the influence of. It was a stark reminder last year when I encountered Richard Shaull’s introduction to Peter Freire’s The Pedagogy of the Oppressed. He writes, “There is no such things as a neutral educational process. Education either functions as an instrument that is used to facilitate the integration of the younger generation into the logic of the present system and bring about conformity to it, or it becomes the ‘practice of freedom,’ the means by which men and women...   [tags: English Writing Teacher Student]

The Central Teaching of Jesus - The Central Teaching of Jesus After reading the chapter on Luke and knowing what I already know about Jesus and his teachings, pinpointing what I believe to be Jesus’ central teaching was much easier than I imagined.

A Methodology to Teaching Writing - A Methodology to Teaching Writing I believe that achieving success in teaching very different aspects of life may still combine similar processes. My life in high school was very similar to the lives of many other students in that it revolved around two things: sports and school.

Teaching From A Design Perspective - Teaching From A Design Perspective Developing a philosophy of education is more than asserting a love of wisdom in the theory and practice of teaching. It may be heartening to feel, but it lacks backbone. For a philosophy to have weight and merit, it needs truth, logical strength, and soundness. (Hughes 19) My philosophy of education asserts the following premises that if we teach: learning as relational; creativity as skill; and knowledge as design; then, we create an instructional approach that is cross curriculum....   [tags: Philosophy Education]
