Give a man a fish, you feed him for a day ;Teach him how to fish, you will feed him for a lifetime.
This is my philosophy of teaching or in life, because I believe that we have to teach a person not in a superficial level but to the deepest thoughts that would mold him to become a better person.It should be that what he learned is useful in his everyday life. Narrow things are not applicable to what life is.It will just pass.Students should leran what is esential, so that they could use it wherever they may go.They need to achieve some relevant outcomes or results .The highest goal of a person is to be productive.Productivity, as its simplest is a ratio that compares units of output with units of inputs ( often against a predetermined standard ). The idea of productivity does not imply that one should produce more output rather, it is a measure of how efficiently one produces whatever output is desired. Consequently, better productivity is a valuable measure of how well resource are used in society. In this philosophy, teaching is developmental. It is concerned with the growth and development of students toward higher levels of competency, creativity and fulfillment because students are the central of the teaching process and any society.The teacher here is supportive .She helps students become better, more responsible people and then it tries to create a climate in a way they may contribute to the limits of their improved abilities.The teacher here assumes that expanded capabilities and opportunities for students will lead directly to improvements in operating effectiveness. Learning satisfaction also will be a direct result when students make fuller use of their abilities. Essentially, this kind of teaching means that better students achieve better results. This is supportive because the teacher's primary role changes from control of students to active support of their growth and performance.Students are learning, growing, and contributing. In other words the teaching that transpired here is not the traditional spoon feeding of teachers.
In real life, instead of giving alms everyday to the tramps or beggars,why not teach them how to fish? Instead of giving alms everyday, why not teach them of some income generating projects. This is not only helping them to feed them only for a day, instead they earn something that could sustain their daily needs. They will no longer be parasites,but learners who are now learned man.Thus, they could provide their needs without asking for alms.
Students and beggars are somehow the same, but if they are surrounded by signicant others who will rear them and guide them to the right track there will be no parasites that would depend to their teacher or the the people in their quest of knowledge and survival.
