College is a place where the professor’s lecture notes go straight to the students’ lecture notes, without passing through the brains of either.
On the last week of April we trained the regional trainers of first grade teachers in the Philippines. We started a Facebook page where we can post links so all the teachers can download all our documents and visual aids for free.
We encourage all the teachers to adjust the lesson plans to fit their regions, and one translator went as far as to add photos of weaves and architecture particular to the Tausug. Perhaps it will be helpful for everyone.
What makes a teacher a good educator?
This description reminds of the teachers in the best teacher movies.
And yes, they are out there.
The best teachers are usually unconventional people. I don’t mean crazy or weird. I mean that they can be law abiding citizens with very normal boring lives who simply have an unconventional approach to life. Maybe some 4D personality traits. Maybe just eccentric. But usually good teachers can teach well because they know how to make any subject alive and interesting. And most of all they NEVER take themselves too seriously.
