Teaching with Passion
Thomas, Jerelyn
Education Digest: Essential Readings Condensed for Quick Review, v73 n3 p63-65 Nov 2007
Teachers will always have to deal with uniform standards and test-related expectations. Beyond that, they need to build a community in which students experience their passion for the subjects they teach and their passion to raise them up. Students need to see teachers' passions--it gives them proof that teachers enjoy learning. Bonding with students rests on what the teacher "gives" rather than what he or she asks of students. In this article, the author discusses the traits of a passionate teacher and offers tips for sharing the teacher's passions to model lifetime learning and inspire students.
