  31. 31. Lesson 1: You, the Teacher, as a Person John Donne said in Meditation XVII: No man is an island... "All mankind is of one author, and is one volume; when one man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language; and every chapter must be so translated...As therefore the bell that rings to a sermon, calls not upon the preacher only, but upon the congregation to come: so this bell calls us all: but how much more me, who am brought so near the door by this sickness....No man is an island, entire of itself...any mans death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.“ The idea that people are not isolated from one another, but  that mankind is interconnected.
  32. 32. You, the Teacher, as a Person How are you going to view MAN? Nature of Man?
  33. 33. No Man Is an IslandArtist(Band):Joan Baez No man is an island, I saw the people gather, No man stands alone, I heard the music start, Each mans joy is joy to me, The song that they were singing, Each mans grief is my own. Is ringing in my heart. We need one another, No man is an island, So I will defend, Way out in the blue, Each man as my brother, We all look to the one above, Each man as my friend. For our strength to renew. When I help my brother, Then I know that I, Plant the seed of friendship, That will never die. 
  34. 34. Lesson learned… We don’t live in a vacuum. We live in a society. We  are part of society. Our thoughts, values, and actions  are somehow shaped by events and people we come  in contact with. We, in turn, help shape society-its  events, its people, and its destiny. In the context of your life as a teacher, we would say:  “No teacher is an island. No teacher stands alone” Indeed, YOU can’t become a TEACHER alone!
  35. 35. Why do you want to become a Teacher? What is a Teacher for you?
  36. 36.  Knows the SM  Has limited knowledge of teaching  methodologies  Relies mainly on explaining or lecturing  The students are only listening,  occasionally answering questions, making  notes, not personally involved or  challenged  The students often get practiced by doing  individual exercise after a lectureThe explainer
  37. 37.  Knows the SM  Is familiar with teaching methodologies  Uses appropriate teaching and organizational procedures and techniques to help students learn  Involves students actively and puts a great deal of efforts into finding appropriate and interesting activities The involver
  38. 38.  Knows the SM  Knows about methodologies  Has the awareness of how individual  students and groups are thinking and  feeling within the class  Builds effective working relationships  and a  good classroom atmosphere  With an active personality and attitudes to  encourage student learning  Develops the conditions that enable and  thus students to learn how to learn and  thus become  life-long learnersThe enabler
  39. 39. It is therefore, no joke to become one! Why? Many a time the teacher is blamed for the many ills  in society. There are lot of demands and much is expected  from you. Your influences on your students and on other people  with whom you work and live are greater. But these  influences depend greatly on your Philosophy as a Person  and as a Teacher. Thus, Your Philosophy of Life and your  Philosophy of Education serve as your “window” to the  world and “compass” in the sea of Life. Within your  personal Philosophy are your Principles and Values that  will determine how you regard people, how you look at life  as a whole. They govern and direct your lifestyle, your  thoughts, decisions, actions and your relationships with  people and things.

  47. 47. Normative philosophies or theoriesof education "Normative philosophies or theories of education may make use  of the results of [philosophical thought] and of factual inquiries  about human beings and the psychology of learning, but in any  case  they  propound  views  about  what  education  should  be,  what  dispositions  it  should  cultivate,  why  it  ought  to  cultivate  them,  how  and  in  whom  it  should  do  so,  and  what  forms  it  should take. In a full-fledged philosophical normative theory of  education,  besides  analysis  of  the  sorts  described,  there  will  normally  be  propositions  of  the  following  kinds:  1.  Basic  normative premises about what is good or right; 2. Basic factual  premises about humanity and the world; 3. Conclusions, based  on  these  two  kinds  of  premises,  about  the  dispositions  education should foster; 4. Further factual premises about such  things  as  the  psychology  of  learning  and  methods  of  teaching;  and  5.  Further  conclusions  about  such  things  as  the  methods  that education should use

Whatadvice will you give? Essentialist group – students are not interested in the  lesson Perennialist group – students want to become skilled  in certain fields of sepcialization Progressivist group – Parents questiion students’  community immersion for it poses certain risks Behaviorist group – Teacher tells students from the  slum areas this: “If there’s a will, there’s a way.  Poverty is not a hindrance to success. Existentialist group – A colleague asks you to decide  for her fear that she may make the wrong decision.
