Teacher Helps to Decipher The Path Of Learning: Philosophy is The Key
Teachers are mentors and play active role in inculcating independent thinking in students, However, to do that as a teacher, you must have a teaching philosophy of your own.
Students always look up to their teacher and therefore, it becomes necessary for you to have thoughts to inspire them. Here are specific reasons why you should Study Philosophy of Education if you are a teacher.
Helps to Decipher The Path of Learning
Teaching philosophy has been defined as the map, which provides directions to move ahead.
One may feel lost without a map. In the same way, you are going to be missed while teaching if a specific path is not decided.
Hence, a map is always needed to make informed movements.
It is not possible to make students learn something until the teacher knows why and how he/she wants to teach.
Once you know your path, you will be helping your students to plan to reach their destinations.
Affects the Society
Teachers are termed as the future makers of the community. People like you are the ones who help students choose different professions and identities.
A teacher can leave a profound impact on students and help them make independent decisions in the near future.
The core values that your students learn from you today are going to be applied and used in society as they grow up.
A solid philosophical background will help ensure that these values are all positive.
If you believe in breaking stereotypes, there are high chances your students will follow the same philosophical path. If your philosophy is accepting the already existing theories, rather than questioning them, your students might follow your path.
Understanding the philosophy of education will teach them the need to know the whys.
Along with the intellectual development of the students, it will also improve the standards of our society and make us more rational.
To Be in Their Shoes
By learning philosophy, a teacher would be able to view and analyze from the perspective of their students.
