For Those Who Choose to Teach in the '70's. Vol. 1, No. 12.
Hughes, Anne E.
Written by an experienced teacher and addressed to beginning teachers, the paper concerns the problems and pleasures of teaching in the '70's from one teacher's point of view. The physical, emotional, spiritual or moral, and intellectual requirements for teaching are examined. Also explored are four broad objectives of the teaching-learning process: self-realization, human relationships, economic efficiency, and civic responsibility. Suggestions are made concerning how a teacher can reach these objectives, in addition to suggestions concerning the importance and characteristics of a good teacher, the physical layout of the classroom, and organizing for teaching. A check list is provided to help in estimating a child's learning readiness, and the field trip technique in teaching is explained. Discussed in relation to developing the language skills are helping the child to listen, oral language, and teaching reading. (KW)
