Title: My teaching philosophy
Author: Isaacs, Morton
Abstract: Teaching is a craft that appears deceptively simple. I believe on, the contrary, that it is one of the most difficult to perform well. As is the case with car drivers (where a survey found that almost all those interviewed felt they were "above average" in driving skills) I think that almost every teacher believes that he or she is an "above average" instructor -- all that is required is to lecture the students on what you know and then test them on it, and if they do poorly -- well, students nowadays are just not studying as hard as they should! On the contrary, I feel very strongly that there are certain elements held in common by all effective teachers; some of these elements can be learned, while others develop in a person through life experiences. I believe those elements can be summed up in three categories: knowledge, behavior, and emotion.
