Transcript

  • 1. Teachers: Forming People TRUST RESPECT INTEGRITY CARING
  • 2. SCHOOLING IS A MORAL ENTERPRISE Examining the moral role and responsibilities of educators in shaping individuals and society
  • 3. Teachers Are: Mediators
    • Definition Mediator: Listens to both sides, interpretation of issues, and resolving differences.
    • - students/parents’ interests
    • - instructional needs
    • - visions of “good life”
    • - moral traditions
    • - positive influence
  • 4. Teachers Are: Moral Agents
    • Moral stance is essential in teacher’s role through 3 approaches:
    • 1) Conceptual approach
    • 2) Metaphorical approach
    • 3) Frontal approach
  • 5. Teachers Are: Role Models
        • Teachers as “ visual standards of conduct ” – role models. They are imparting moral lessons not only through their character and teaching style but also the physical environment they create.
        • A school’s values influenced by socially established values. Many times difficult to define what is “right” given the moral ambiguity of our society and the evolving social consensus on what should be and ought to be.
        • Parents’ understand implicitly the power of schools to “make or break” someone. To teach is to deal with morality and is a “ sacred trust ” that society imparts to educators. A responsibility to be taken seriously.
  • 6. Teachers Must Be: Wide Awake
    • What is “wide-awakeness” and why is it so hard?
    • “… the ability to think about what they are doing, to take responsibility”.
    • Wide-awake teachers:
    • “ You do not need moral genius for educating character, you need someone wholly alive and able to communicate himself directly to his fellow beings ”.
    • Emancipatory education.
  • 7. Implications of Teaching: Shaping People
    • “ No written word, no spoken plea,
    • Can teach our youth what they should be.
    • Nor all the books on all the shelves,
    • It’s what the teachers are themselves ”
    • - John Wooden
  • 8. Development of ERE
    • Explore how teachers are caught in the “middle” teaching the curriculum standards (learning skills and subject matter) as opposed to teaching moral education.
    • Further explore the idea that education is a “socially constructed phenomenon” (Alan Tom, 1984).
    • Will examine the importance of educators understanding and building upon their own moral conscience in order that they are equipped to lead others.
