Research 2

This article discusses how the responsibilities of teachers extend further than just the subject material. Teaching requires a great deal of commitment and observational learning. The article says they must also be knowledgeable in the types of learning/teaching and how to use them to their advantage. Effective teachers not only teach their students but learn from them as well. They must know how to cater to each different learning style since students fall in different learning categories. Teachers have a very high impact on society; according to this article they are expected to “develop students’ cognitive capacity…and foster students’ self-esteem, motivation, civic responsibility, and their respect for individual, cultural, religious, and racial differences.”
