Do you agree or disagree with the following statement?
"The most important duty of a teacher is to show students how,what they are studying relates to their daily lives."
I agree with the statement ""The most important duty of a teacher is to show students how,what they are studying relates to their daily lives."Every teacher has a greater responsibility in the society.They should explain the students why they are studying their subjects and how it will be connected with their daily lives.Their significant part is to train the students in a proper way.The methods and ways to handle them are different from one another.For a teacher there are several challenging skills.Among those,one is to engage students in the learning activities.They should think of the students mindset and give them the intrinsic motivation.During the interaction they should give the positive messages,so that the students will cooperate.
From school level for example in mathematics,everyone would learn addition,subtraction,multiplication,divison academically.But practically how it can be used in their day to day life should be explained through several examples.This type of learning can interest the students to have a wider spectrum of knowledge.I would like to share my experience here,when i was in eight standard my physics teacher used to explain the volume of a cone by cutting the paint tin into a cone shape.After finishing the hardware portion,he will interact with students with lots of fun.This insists many students in my batch to get into engineering profession.
If we taken a engineering college,there are lots of academic subjects to learn.The professor has to explain each and every subjects in a practical manner.For instance,a civil engineer should make a drawing plan before get into the site.The professor should explain this concept by why would we have the drawing plan and how should we prepare it.This would give them good construction.Everyone has different views of the world and goals.A student cannot have a knowledge of their doings,this should be sensed by the teachers and give them a proper direction.
"Those who educate children well are more to be honored than they who produce them; for these only gave them life, those the art of living well.”
With the Quote of Aristotle,I would like to conclude that teaching is an art and it has a greater power in the development of country's growth.Thus one who teaches the students with the help of relating the practical and daily experience would make profound impact in their career as well as in life.
