Re: ideas to give future art teachers


Date: Mon Apr 16 2001 - 15:23:12 PDT

When I began teaching I received this advise from a professor at the U. of
Illinois. He said that a good teacher will 1.) know his subject cold, 2.)
believe in what he is doing, and 3.) know some pedagogical tricks to assure
proper assessment. Students respect a teacher who knows his stuff ... some
are motivated by this respect. I find that students are motivated by
enthusiasm ... that is believing in what you are doing. Students want to feel
that their efforts are valued ... some are motivated by proper assessment. I
would say that students are motivated by good teachers. Peter
