Teaching Style
Teaching Style had been passed down centuries ago, the teaching styles evolves tremendously. Teacher centered learning is the old way of teaching where teachers are more in control and students’ ideas are denied.

In the parable “Doubt” by John Patrick Shanley stated “Sister Aloysius: These three students with the highest marks. Are they the most intelligent children in your class? Sister James: No, I wouldn’t say they are. But they work the hardest” (1470). Not all highest marks, are the most intelligent student. Some of them just work hard and study a lot. Because if a teacher makes the class fun, it is not boring. The students and the teacher share their opinion. Instead of listening to the teacher, teaches and students interact equally.

In the parable “Doubt” by John Patrick Shanley stated “Sister Aloysius: Use … It is society which requires constant educational, spiritual and human vigilance. I cannot afford an excessively innocent instructor in my eight grade class. It’s self indulgent and innocence is a form of laziness. Innocent teachers are easily duped and teacher must be Canny, Sister James” (1471). When Sister Aloysius told this to Sister James about her teaching style, all of them are true.

    The new teacher must also feel comfortable with their own knowledge of the content they are teaching.

    The students then can pass the class just by memorizing the answers and leave with no quality education to benefit them in the future.

Generally, after the discussion, you will have a better outlook on the type of person who will be assisting your child in his/her educational needs. Thank you goes a long way Sometimes teaching can be a thankless occupation, not because they aren’t gaining fulfillment from instilling their knowledge onto their students and watching them succeed, it’s because they are rarely thanked for their efforts.

For example if a teacher was unable to engage the class in the subject then the class would not do well because they are uninterested. This could frustrate the teacher and it begins a cycle of frustration and confusion for the whole class.…
