My Teaching Philosophy - My Teaching Philosophy If someone would have asked me one or two years ago what I wanted to do with my life, I would have said, “I have no clue, but I do know that I will never teach!” I have had that sentiment for as long as I can remember. But this year, I had to decide on a major. I looked at all the possibilities offered to me at Concord College and realized that education was the only one that suited me. I was still not sure if I wanted to pursue a career in education, but it at least gave me some classes to take....   [tags: Teachers Education Progressivism Essays] 1124 words

My Teaching Philosophy - My Teaching Philosophy Education. What is Education. What does it mean to be an educator. Education is a field of study dealing with methods of teaching and learning.

Teaching Philosophy Statement - Teaching Philosophy Statement My philosophy of education draws on a number of theoretical frameworks. However, the key component is the individual, more specifically, the child. Each of us - each child - is different and unique, even though we reflect a socially constructed view of the world. The tension between difference and shared construction can be conceived of as a result of each individual’s experiences. Such experiences are a result of living in a social world and are different from those experienced by others....   [tags: Philosophy Education Essays] 1028 words

Personal Teaching Philosophy - Personal Teaching Philosophy As important as a teacher’s philosophy is to the students, I believe that it is more significant to know where it comes from and how it was developed. When I walk into a classroom, not only do I want my students to know what my feelings about education are, but I also want them to know why I have them. I will first give my class an overview of how I came to be a math teacher and the road that I traveled to get there. The fact that I chose math as my concentration because it was the most challenging subject and not the easiest might inspire other students to give math a chance or work harder if they are having trouble....   [tags: Education Teachers Reflective Writing Essays] 721 words

(English Center for Children), which is a private English academy located in Tongyeong, South Korea. These students are around 12 and 13 years of age and are among the most advanced in the school.

Teaching Philosophy Statement - Teaching Philosophy Statement Aristotle once said, “The one exclusive sign of thorough knowledge is the power of teaching.” Teaching enables students to gain the intelligence needed to excel in life. I believe that a teacher’s philosophy of education is a crucial role in his or her approach to leading students on their educated path. A philosophy of education is the set of beliefs that every school and every teacher stand behind. The certain philosophy that one chooses provides the answers to many vital questions, such as the purpose of schooling, a teacher’s role, and what should be taught in the classroom....   [tags: Education Educational Essays] 980 words

Teaching Philosophy Statement - Teaching Philosophy Statement Yesterday’s great thinkers are not nearly the same as today’s great thinkers. Along with modern technology and our country’s increasing emphasis on individuality and freedom, students today are accomplishing more personal goals and achieving much different aspirations than those of just twenty years ago. Therefore, with these realities comes the thought that educational philosophy, curriculum, and teaching methods should also change with the time. I do not want our schools to become manufacturers of “ideal” thinkers, where we just spit out little replicas of past instructors and educators....   [tags: Philosophy of Education Teachers Essays] 912 words

Teaching Philosophy Statement - Teaching Philosophy Statement The economic, social, and political systems of the United States are arranged in a manner that benefits the few at the expense of the rest. Unfortunately, the school is a tool indirectly used by the government to perpetuate the injustice and keep things in tact. Blind patriotism in the classroom suppresses discussion on pervasive inequalities, leaving students to ignorantly accept the status quo. As a social reconstructionist, I believe that younger generations should learn about the wrongs that persist, so they can fix our broken society when it is their turn to lead....   [tags: Teachers Education Classroom Essays] 1163 words

Teaching Critical Reflection - Teaching Critical Reflection The ability to reflect critically on one’s experience, integrate knowledge gained from experience with knowledge possessed, and take action on insights is considered by some adult educators to be a distinguishing feature of the adult learner (Brookfield 1998; Ecclestone 1996; Mezirow 1991). Critical reflection is the process by which adults identify the assumptions governing their actions, locate the historical and cultural origins of the assumptions, question the meaning of the assumptions, and develop alternative ways of acting (Cranton 1996)....   [tags: Education Educational Essays] 2185 words

My Teaching Philosophy - My Teaching Philosophy The nature of knowledge should be relative. Each student is different, and their education should fit their needs. Education should help the child grow both mentally and emotionally. Students should be given the right to think on their own. They do not need a teacher who will take their free will away. Students should not have to conform to something in which they do not believe. They should have their own thought processes. The best philosophical approach toward a child’s education is progressivism....   [tags: Education Educational Teacher Essays] 739 words

Teaching Writing Philosophy - Teaching Writing Philosophy Assessments are easily one of the most frustrating elements of school life for both teachers and students. The argument that there is no way to tell how much a student is learning without assessments should prove false for a skilled teacher.

That being said, I still believe in assessment as a useful tool within teaching if it is done well and fairly....   [tags: Education Teacher Educating Essays] 1879 words

Mrs. Jones deliberately makes her grading system harder than the other humanities teachers, even though each student is taking the exact same test....   [tags: School Teacher Student Education] 1377 words
