Transcript

  • 1. Chapter 1 Becoming a Teacher: Looking Forward and Backward at the Same Time
  • 2. "Better than a thousand days of diligent study is one day with a great teacher." ~Japanese proverb
  • 3. Metaphors offer a great way to help create images for others of what teaching means to you. <ul><li>the metaphor of an octopus might evoke the image of a teacher with many &quot;arms&quot; reaching out to the needs of many students </li></ul>
  • 4. <ul><li>the metaphor of a sheep herder might create the image of a teacher who is guiding a &quot;flock&quot; of students in a particular direction </li></ul>
  • 5. <ul><li>the metaphor of a social director might form the image of a teacher who offers students a wide range of activities to interest them </li></ul>
  • 6. <ul><li>the metaphor of a decathlete might produce the image of a teacher who is required to be talented in many events in order to be successful at his/her job. </li></ul>
  • 7. <ul><li>Just as every teacher has his/her own style of teaching, every teacher's metaphor for teaching is different. </li></ul>
