Teacher as Moral Model--Are We Caring Enough?
Narinasamy, Ilhavenil; Logeswaran, Aravindan Kalisri
World Journal of Education, v5 n6 p1-13 2015
Teacher modelling, a part of Ethics of Care plays a vital role in the relationship between teachers and students that shapes students' character in the classroom. This case study highlighted a limited understanding of a teacher in the classroom on what constitute care for her students. However, her display of caring was shown more through her role-modelling traits such as showing concern for students, praising students, displaying patience, empathising with students and listening to students that had positive responses from the students and this emphasizes that more positive characteristics could have emerged if the teacher understood the concept of "care."
